Adam Higman, Vice President of Soyring Consulting, was recently quoted in a Healthcare Finance News article, "Patient-centered design for hospitals."
"...Higman said that facilities built today tend to have the same footprint as those built 20 to 30 years ago, but have half as many beds. 'The price on a new facility is certainly going to be 20-25 percent more than the old one just because of finish work and size,' he said. 'Really, given the percentage, it is hard to calculate because your capacity is so much less than it was before. The equation has kind of changed entirely.'"
