When Vertical Expansion is the Winning Choice

When the hospital C-suite or Facility Managers look at their master plan or a feasibility study, they sometimes wonder, “can we go vertical somewhere?” It’s a decision that, when done the right way for the right reasons, can have excellent patient and community benefits–as well as being a smart long-term investment. In this episode, Minta Ferguson, AIA, Director of Planning for McMillan Pazdan Smith Architecture talks with guest Deon Lewis, Executive Director of CaroMont Health and Lisa Yagla, AIA, Associate Architect about how an aligned team can use some creative ways to design for flexibility and prepare for the unknown.

This open discussion about a current on-going project reveals the critical success factors and benefits of vertical expansion. Thanks for listening!
