HCI North Texas September Event - Micro Hospitals - Please Join Us!

  • Texas Health Presbyterian Plano (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Micro-Hospitals - Strategic Implementation Pros and Cons:

The trend of the small hospital model 15,000 SF to 50,000 SF commonly used as market entry or outreach potential is the subject discussed in every circle of healthcare these days.  While some systems embrace the smaller sized version and are building them in multiple sites, others are modifying them such that they may actually be classified as a community hospital though smaller than customary.  Still other systems are not implementing them at all.  This session will enlighten the North Texas region as to the various viewpoints on, real estate, operational models, and long-range expectations.  Look forward to a lively dialogue as we engage our panelists in the topic.
