As the healthcare landscape shifts, many providers are delivering care in innovative ways. With the goal of integrating into their patients daily lives, providers are also searching for new, conveniently-located facilities capable of accommodating a wide array of ambulatory services ranging from a simple exam, consultation or blood draw room to more complex procedures, including surgery and imaging. Procedural spaces may require significant adjustment to existing building infrastructure and incur substantial capital construction cost. Developing a rigorous site selection process provides a framework for data-driven decision-making.
There are various challenges in finding ambulatory care sites for your healthcare system's needs, which you should adress in your site selection process.
