Balancing a real estate portfolio and financial pressures alongside the need for collaborative and healthy work environments can be challenging. Given the current pressures from the pandemic, and on-going needs for many health systems to continually examine their physical footprint and maintain their mission to provide exemplary, seamless, and patient-centered care to their communities, many health systems are attempting new ways of working; both at home, in the office and in hybrid environments. In this session, you will hear from a real estate professional from the largest non-profit health system in the U.S. and an architect on how to balance these opposing goals, and still provide space that meets the mission of the organization. Specific examples, case studies, and design applications will be presented to the audience, including discussion of approaches for health and well-being in the workplace, and at home.
- Examine research associated with workplace and work-from-home scenarios.
- Identify key objectives and approaches for portfolio optimization.
- Learn approaches to design for health and wellness in the workplace.
- Understand the impact of portfolio optimization and balance with employee.
