Today’s Realities, Tomorrow’s Potential
Given the changing legislative, regulatory, and payment environment, many organizations are taking a second look at their real estate. Some are forgoing new buildings in favor of renovation and reuse, others are addressing unanticipated surges in bed needs. It is no longer enough to review a campus or facility master plan once every 10 years and call it a day — in today’s highly fluid environment, healthcare executives must align physical assets and operational imperatives more frequently with strategies for growth and strategic positioning.
This requires master planning tools that incorporate dynamic, data-rich modeling and scenario testing to respond to rapidly changing conditions. NBBJ’s Master Planning team brings together consultants in healthcare planning, urban planning, policy and strategy with advanced data analysts and visualization experts, in order to provide plans that are both immediately usable and continuously adaptable.

Recruitment and growth
Our comprehensive approach to space programming brings together operational, functional, and physical needs to support our clients’ care delivery and mission. This often starts with “right-sizing” and includes identifying issues and then accommodating projected future growth by providing the right amount of space to be highly efficient.
Workplace Experience Evaluation
Programming and Strategy
Facility assessments integrate the physical, operational, and financial aspects of a project. And whether you’re planning and designing a small department, a single service line, an entire campus, or a multi-regional system, our solutions scale to the scope and focus of your project.
Our approach involves a thorough review and assessment of your service lines including a critical review of data and comprehensive discussions with service line leaders. We couple this to service line forecasts to determine what is needed going forward.
Population Health Planning
Knowing who your patients are, where they live, and where they get care is the first step in determining a population health strategy. We use ArcGIS, design computation tools, and Lean tools to understand your organization’s patients and predict where they might best be served.

To effectively guide your key clinical capacity needs, NBBJ consulting offers an 8-10 week advanced strategic planning effort. Our NBBJ Rapid Planner process is a sprint effort to prioritize your facility and operational needs. The new normal requires innovative and accelerated planning!
