Opening Discussion Topic:
While healthcare is increasingly being delivered electronically and in the home, to treat the relatively minor ills that ail us, when it comes to life-saving surgeries and procedures, smartphones have yet to replace hospitals. Yet the demands placed on hospitals continue to evolve: not only do they need to meet California’s stringent earthquake standards, be environmentally sound, and accommodate ever-evolving medical technology and best-practice layouts, they need to be beautiful places in which to heal.
During our Group Discussion, we’ll look to hear your take on the impact of this summer’s Executive Orders, changing regulations, and any other happenings that are impacting your healthcare sector – or that you think we should know about and discuss. Then, our Featured Member, Rob Matthew, Chairman, Principal and Healthcare Director of KMD Architects, will take us on a fascinating visual journey of not only their impressive general medical and specialty hospitals, clinics, behavioral health centers, and medical office buildings built around the world, but how incorporating evidence-based-design and experience working with corporate headquarters, hospitality, mixed-use retail, and public buildings are influencing their more creative medical designs.
RSVP today! And alert us to any other Hot Issues we should include during our Discussion.
