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.

1. Utilize clearly defined operational vision and strategy to drive innovative design and programming 
2. Evaluate how application of real estate strategy and use of existing space can lead to more profitable health system portfolio while addressing safety of patients, staff, and local community
3. Establish aligned project goals across team to ensure on-going coordination of leadership vision and execution of project delivery model
4. Identify key design and cost control strategies to best position health system for long-term adaptability, clinical quality and operational efficiencies
