Webinar Overview
As healthcare organizations 
transform themselves from a single aim that merely emphasizes care, to a triple aim, focusing on improving population health and lowering costs, the role of the built environment becomes even more important. In this on-demand webinar, Blair Sadler, a hospital CEO for more than 26 years, explains the new economics of healthcare and how architecture and design is vital to the bottom line. A simple framework to help calculate the economic return on investment of any design decision is provided.
