Expertise Guiding Healthcare Organizations to a Safe and Compliant Healing Environment

Medxcel is the largest sole provider of healthcare facilities services in the U.S., dedicated to creating a safe healing environment in the hospitals we serve. We understand that staying ahead of compliance regulations, ligature risks, life safety drawings and mechanical, electrical & plumbing concerns is a full-time job, and many hospitals lack the additional resources and staff to dedicate time to this.​

Regulatory demand requires hospitals to evaluate the current state of their facility regularly. Given the complexity of requirements, highly trained experts are needed to identify compliance gaps and provide remediation action steps that constrain costs. Medxcel not only has the appropriate resources, but also a level of expertise that will provide a roadmap for the facility to ensure survey readiness.

Medxcel looks at each facility from a neutral perspective to give you the awareness about your facility. Utilizing our predictive database of survey trends across the 160 hospitals we serve nationwide, we identify trending deficiencies in governing bodies that help you be prepared for your next survey.

Service Overview

Fully understanding the current state of your facility is crucial to preparing your healthcare organization for the next regulatory survey. Medxcel’s team of dedicated experts hold decades of experience in facilities compliance and optimized facility performance that can support your efforts towards survey readiness.

Facility Condition Assessment

Mechanical, Electrical, and Plumbing (MEP) systems and equipment are the backbone to facility operations. Ensuring this equipment is operating at maximum efficiency not only creates smoother operations, but could generate cost savings for the facility.

Medxcel’s MEP and healthcare facility management experts perform assessments of facilities across the country. They evaluate current state, identify critical system issues, develop cost projections for system upgrades and replacements, and generate a facility capital infrastructure plan that identifies critical infrastructure necessary to maintain the hospital at an optimal level.

Life Safety Assessment

Maintaining compliance with the Life Safety Code is challenging. Even the most well-run facilities management programs may have blind spots discovered on the day of survey. Medxcel provides Life Safety consulting services using our comprehensive assessment to determine your facility’s level of compliance with regulatory agency requirements and help maintain Continuous Survey Readiness.

Medxcel’s Life Safety Assessment is designed to evaluate the performance of current Life Safety management efforts and indicate where gaps may exist. Leveraging our extensive resources and expertise, we provide a roadmap to guide your facilities team and achieve readiness in safety, security, and infection control.

Life Safety Drawing Assessment

Maintaining engineered Life Safety Drawings is a necessary function that enables a healthcare organization to provide the best possible care in a safe environment. These should be considered living documents as ongoing changes in layout and departmental space use has a direct impact on the safety of the physical environment.

Medxcel will ensure your Life Safety Drawings accurately reflect the built environment and meet all required accreditation elements, including compliance with the NFPA 101 Life Safety Code and its referenced materials as well as and any other requirements for your jurisdiction.

Physical Environment Review

Whether it’s in preparation for an upcoming regulatory survey or you are looking for full view into your facility’s compliance, Medxcel will thoroughly assess your facility’s current state.

Medxcel’s Physical Environment Review is an opportunity to conduct a detailed review of regulatory compliance as they relate to your hospital’s physical environment and deliver a plan for compliance assurance.

The goal is to assess the level of compliance, identify any gaps, and provide a blueprint for Continuous Survey Readiness that is specific to your hospital.

Ligature Risk Assessment

The Joint Commission has placed a special focus on suicide, self-harm and ligature observations in psychiatric hospitals and behavioral health units.

Medxcel’s ligature assessment process aligns clinical and facilities teams to ensure all potential points of ligature are documented and addressed, not only to ensure a smooth survey, but more importantly, to ensure a safe healing environment.
