1 Hour Healthcare has eight episodes on changes in the built environment. Watch when your want!

1 Hour Healthcare, is a bi-weekly virtual news show that fills a vital need for engaging, high-quality continuing education content for all professionals serving the healthcare built-environment. 1 Hour connects healthcare real estate, design, construction, facilities management, and related professionals to timely events, news, education, and resources. It builds upon the hosts’ longstanding history of successful live events with its focus on insights from industry leaders. Viewers watch at their convenience on the VirtualCast platform.

The Corporate Realty Design & Management Institute (CRDMI), in partnership with the Association of Medical Facility Professionals (AMFP), is bringing this powerful combination of C-suite insight and engaging, high-quality production to healthcare professionals. The McMorrow Reports/Healthcare is the program’s media partner.

1 Hour is not another webcast or mundane Zoom meeting. CRDMI has a long history of bringing together healthcare C-suite leaders, innovators and subject matter experts to create a compelling event. Now we’ve partnered with experts in the broadcast environment to ensure that our virtual content is as engaging as it is insightful,” says Alan Whitson, president of CRDMI.

“We’re not abandoning living events, simply shifting gears. Live events will eventually return in some form, and we’ll be ready for them. However, until then, we’ll provide the education, connections, and information needed by our audience needs in a virtual format that’s interesting, provocative and raises the bar for virtual content,” adds Glenn Fischer, executive vice president of CRDMI.
