The Emergency Department Workshop

Location: American Institute of Architects
130 Sutter Street, San Francisco, CA 94104

Date: June 18-19, 2015

Early Bird Registration:  $695.00
After May 15, 2015:  $795.00

Designing a new or renovating an existing emergency department is a high stakes opportunity.  Today, more than ever, emergency department directors
balance a range of competing priorities, including:

  • increased volume and patient acuity
  • primary care staffing shortages
  • overcrowding 
  • delayed “up-stream” throughput, and other system bottle-necks

These challenges are coupled with the need to continually adapt to ever changing technology, ensure emergency preparedness and deliver in an era of accountable care.

We have partnered with The American College of Emergency Physicians to bring you internationally recognized experts, who will explore technological and design innovations that address optimal patient flow, improved clinical outcomes, quality of care, and patient safety and satisfaction.


  • ED directors, emergency service physicians, emergency department nurses and managers
  • Healthcare facilities and planning executives
  • Hospital executives with capital investments and emergency department oversight
  • Healthcare architects, planners, designers, and consultants

How Can Design Impact Healthcare Facility
Cleanliness Performance?

Thursday, May 7, 2015
11:00 am Pacific / 2:00 pm Eastern

Join Dennis Kaldenberg, PhD., Chief Scientist, Senior Vice President, Press Ganey Associates for a one hour webinar, "Patient Perceptions of Hospital Cleanliness -More Than Just a 'Nice to Have' ”. Explore recent information from the HCAHPS and Press Ganey Surveys that shed light on how reliably patient expectations relate to room cleanliness and will identify hospital and patient types that typically result in poor cleanliness reports. Dennis will examine ways in which these perceptions are related to other organizational outcomes ( including “positive word of mouth” and healthcare acquired infection scores) and review design considerations that facilitate room cleaning and improve patient perceptions of cleanliness. Detailed biography and CEU information here
