Thirty-five years ago, the hospital building was the centerpiece of health care delivery in the United States. Hospitals dominated the skyline of even the smallest city, and elderly housing and care was provided in buildings that looked and felt a lot like hospitals… only without the operating rooms.
Now these monoliths are changing as health care delivery escapes from the staid bricks and mortar edifices of old into new and diverse venues such as mobile units, residential households, commercial shopping centers, pharmacies, small and large outpatient facilities, free-standing emergency rooms, and even grocery stores.

The 2019 AHCA Seminar will focus on what some hospital organizations are doing to expand their health care services far beyond the hospital campus to reach patients in many new innovative and non-traditional settings.

Other main featured speaker sessions will highlight other trends in the ever-expanding horizons of health care facility design and construction. Beth Baker, author of a new book about intentional retirement communities across the United States, will introduce new and innovative choices for aging in community. John Currie, renowned lecturer at Clemson University, will review health care facility design from past to present. Michael Murphy, Founding Principal and Executive Director of MASS Design Group, will explore how not only the design of buildings, but the process of building, can promote healing and dignity.

To aid in bringing these designs for healing to fruition, there will also be detailed presentations regarding the changing codes and standards that must be understood and incorporated. The five breakaway tracks for the disciplines of architecture, mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, facility engineering, and fire safety will be held Sunday through Tuesday afternoons to concentrate on issues that are specific to each discipline.
And this year the required two hour Florida Building Code approved Advanced Course will be offered for Architects.

All educational sessions will be submitted for CEU credit to the Florida Board of Professional Regulation for Registered Architects and Professional Engineers, the American Institute of Architecture, AIA, and American Society of Healthcare Engineering (ASHE). The total number of final credits will be determined after the courses are reviewed and CEUs are issued by each of the organizations.
