Concept to Operations: Strategic Planning for Behavioral Health Facilities
Senior Vice President for Behavioral Health and Correctional Medicine, The MetroHealth System
Senior Development Director, Anchor Health Properties
Principal Architect & Director of Behavioral Health Planning, Hasenstab Architects

As the demand for behavioral health programs increases nationwide, the ability to proactively conduct a comprehensive strategic planning initiative is the key to defining, and sustaining, a behavioral health facility’s long-term success. Integration of these resources into the larger strategic business plan can assist in sustainable growth, as well as strengthen and improve existing service lines through cross-referrals and enhancement of patient navigation. This session will focus on the application and execution of licensing, regulatory and accreditation standards, as well as design, construction and financing of this specialty care facility. With The MetroHealth System, we will explore how efficient use of existing real estate, innovative design and programming, and a clearly defined operational roadmap led to successful navigation of the complexities from “concept” to “ribbon cutting” to operational excellence in this competitive market during an unprecedented pandemic.
