Change is constant and adaptation continuous in the healthcare industry. An ongoing trend has been shifting services from the acute setting to a more ambulatory approach, which brings a new set of challenges as health systems position themselves to best accommodate patients on their healthcare journeys.

Jennifer Nussbaum, AIA, a Senior Healthcare Planner with Catalyst, a Haskell Company, helps clients find clarity around the implications of strategic decisions on their available facilities and works with operational teams to develop efficient and effective solutions.

Nussbaum has identified four key aspects to consider in refining and redefining ambulatory assets:

  1. Future Strategic Goals -- A health system’s assets include its physical assets and its service lines, and understanding the market’s need from a service perspective is critical.
  2. Operational Targets and Organizational Culture – Integrating providers’ operational expectations into a needs analysis is paramount in determining physical space needs.
  3. Conditions of Existing Assets – Asset studies should include architectural and engineering assessments to assess true viability.
  4. Financial Investment – Assessment of the financial viability of changes to ambulatory assets underpins the organization’s ability to enhance and align its service offerings.
