Facility planning can be a daunting and costly endeavor. From reconfiguring a hospital wing to replacing an entire facility, it becomes more expensive with every change order. But facility design also can be a powerful lever to improve the quality and cost-effectiveness of care when aligned with the right workflow patterns.

At GE Healthcare Partners, we help healthcare organizations combine workflow optimization, simulation modeling, and facility design to transform care delivery.

Drawing on clinical and operational expertise, along with our proprietary simulation modeling and analytical technologies, we can guide you through the planning process, help you avoid costly pitfalls and setbacks, and develop facility solutions that are forward-thinking, yet practical, cost-effective, and evidence-based.

Our team includes clinicians, thought leaders, former provider-side executives, and planners with more than 35 years of experience creating facility plans and master plans. Collaborating with your team, they will partner with healthcare providers and architects in all aspects of the pre-design phase of the construction process. From evaluating your current state to analyzing the impact of factors such as healthcare reform, industry and technology trends, and strategic direction, we will help you develop a framework for systematically realizing your future state.

Our role in facility planning includes the following key processes in the pre-design phase:

  • Defining the delivery network
  • Current state assessment
  • Market assessment and utilization projections
  • Facility sizing
  • Functional and space programming
  • Financial feasibility
