Prioritizing Healthcare Facilities Readiness Among Budget Constraints

This white paper details how healthcare systems must prioritize healthcare facilities readiness as they return to normal operations post-pandemic, during a time of fiscal challenges.

Hospitals are currently facing financial challenges never experienced before. The recent pandemic has challenged healthcare systems in ways many never imagined. Many systems halted elective surgeries and other procedures for a period of time, causing tremendous damage to the bottom line. The need to quickly adapt spaces for infection control and managing an influx of highly contagious patients with extended stays resulted in unexpected expenses during a period of decreased revenues.

Hospitals with on-site facilities management teams were prepared to pivot and adapt spaces more quickly than those relying on outside contractors during a crisis when multiple facilities were looking for assistance simultaneously. Inability to quickly prepare for the influx of COVID patients forced some sites to resort to diverting some patients.
