36th Annual AHCA Seminar
Program Highlights

To help us kick off the adoption by Florida of the 2018 FGI Guidelines, Doug Erickson, Chief Executive Officer of the Facility Guidelines Institute, will deliver a keynote overview of the 2018 edition and the revisions that are being made to the 2022 edition.

We are also pleased to announce many of the Healthcare Guidelines Revision Committee (HGRC) chairs will present some of the 2018 revisions and explain the intent of particular sections.

Jane Rohde, Principal at JSR Associates, will present the changes to residential design; Judy Smith, Principal at Smith Hager Bajo, Inc., will present revisions to the obstetrics and NICU sections; Rebecca J. Lewis, Principal, DSGW Architects, will give an overview of outpatient design; Greg Pace, Senior Project Manager, RLF Architecture Engineering Interiors, will provide details of the behavioral health sections; and Bob Booth, Principal, Oncore Inc., will review the new requirements for infection prevention.

These and others of the HGRC will be on site to provide invaluable information for navigating these new design standards.

In addition, architects, engineers, and contractors who have been directly involved with the revisions to the 2018 NFPA Codes and Standards and the 7th edition of the Florida Building Code will present detailed insights to these revisions.

This will be your only opportunity to meet and engage with the people who actually write, revise, lecture, enforce, and interpret the Codes and Standards for health care design and construction that are enforced in Florida.
