Many healthcare systems face the reality of crumbling infrastructure, outdated facilities, and critical care hindrances that threaten patients' safety. Gordian conducted a survey to diagnose and assess the current state and future concerns of healthcare facilities management.

The survey aimed to answer questions such as: 

  • Are facilities departments seen as strategic assets aligned with organizational goals? Is valuable data gathering dust or effectively guiding crucial decisions about upgrades and improvements, 
  • What critical issues threaten patient safety, operational efficiency, and the ability to adapt to future healthcare needs, 
  • Are there plans that adequately address these challenges and the confidence in current investment strategies?

At HealthSpaces, Mark Kennedy, Gordian’s Director of Healthcare Strategy & Market Development, shared the findings from this survey. The survey results show a complex picture where aging infrastructure, budget constraints, and data underutilization pose significant challenges. However, there is a glimmer of hope as many facility leaders acknowledge the need for change, with existing plans and a noteworthy level of confidence in their direction.  

Kennedy urged a shift from reactive to proactive resilience, championing strategic upgrades, crafting adaptable spaces, and fostering a culture of experimentation for continuous improvement to ensure resilient and future-proof facilities.
