Effective and efficient operations and maintenance of health care facilities is a critical component of a healthy patient care environment. However, few avenues exist that support the technical enrichment of facility management staff in the health care industry. This session will present case studies from three types of health care campuses to illustrate how training can be deployed to equip facility staff with the knowledge and tools they need to be successful.
Discuss three distinctive case studies represented by a large academic medical campus, a new children’s hospital, and an established multi-facility health care system
Identify how to overcome common barriers and challenges when developing a technical training program for facility management staff
Discuss quantifiable measures of success that are realized after a technical training program is executed
Participate in an interactive assessment session with sample technical questions in the area of HVAC, building controls, and electrical systems
