Inpatient admissions down; outpatient up; aging driving visits

The Mid-Atlantic Hospital, Outpatient Facilities & Medical Office Buildings Summit was held June 20 in Philadelphia. More than 100 FMs, architects, designers and real estate professionals gathered to learn from 22 speakers about trends in the healthcare facilities market and examine real estate case studies from major healthcare players like the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia and Thomas Jefferson University. The McMorrow Reports covered the conference and will be sharing summaries of the sessions.

The conference began with Alan Whitson, president of Corporate Realty, Design & Management Institute, giving an overview of what’s driving healthcare. Here are a few of his most striking stats:
