The purpose of any medical facility is to serve patients’ needs. To do this, it is necessary for the facility’s design to support the functions and operations of the organization it houses. If your space needs improvements, creating and implementing a Master Facility Plan (MFP) can help you bring your space back up to par in terms of operational efficiency, but it can also be a daunting process. It may be tempting to simplify the process as much as possible by simply designing a building, but it is important not to miss the opportunity to take advantage of making operational improvements through facility planning.
While you have probably considered that you will need some architectural assistance for the construction and/or remodeling pieces, have you thought about who can assist you in determining what the priorities should be for your space? Where are your pain points and breakdowns in your systems, and how can you remedy them through your Master Facility Plan? A partner can help you answer these questions.
