Healthcare Technology - Summer 2014 Print

It is with delight that I welcome you to our summer newsletter with a focus on healthcare.

Our expert team of medical equipment planners and healthcare information technology consultants are pleased to be working with so many talented architects and world class healthcare institutions. At SM&W, we believe our role is to be your advocate wherever healthcare and technology intersect.

Going forward, our new quarterly newsletter will have a timely theme. Future issues will focus on a variety of topics including campus security, emerging technology trends in cultural and educational institutions, and the role of acoustics and technology in workplace design trends. We hope you will find the information useful and relevant.

The value of working with an integrated medical equipment planning consultant for Healthcare Projects

By Teriann Pikarski, Senior Consultant, Medical Equipment

Regardless of the size of your facility, equipment costs can range between 25%–30% of the overall project budget. For a project where the project costs run in the hundreds and thousands to millions of dollars, 30% is a significant amount of dollars allocated to equipment. A medical planning expert can allay any anxiety about the type, size, cost, fit, and capabilities of your equipment purchase.

An experienced medical equipment planning consultant can solve and integrate the myriad needs of the clinicians while working with the budget constraints of the overall facility. The consultant can also work to ensure the equipment fits in with the overall design considerations by the architect. SM&W’s medical equipment planning team can provide an integrated approach between all types of equipment and departments where there is close alignment with design and construction. Read More >>
