Next Generation Healthcare Real Estate: Visions for Architecture and Functionality

The healthcare sector is in a period of transition, especially hospitals. Huge cost and competitive pressure is forcing them to make savings, while competition for patients creates more exacting requirements in terms of aesthetics, architecture and building ecology. The options available to hospital operators and funding organizations in meeting these challenges will be examined closely on June 20 and 21 at ‘The Clinic Real Estate of the Next Generation’ convention in Frankfurt am Main, Germany.

The international flavor of the event location – The Squaire at Frankfurt Airport – is reflected by the program: Prestigious speakers from Germany, Europe and the United States will give some insight into the latest trends in the sector. The main focus will be on pioneering projects such as the Penn Medicine Pavilion and the world’s first hospital to be built to passive house standards, in Frankfurt am Main. In addition to the keynote speeches, the agenda includes workshops on specific key topics, such as legal frameworks, financing models, medical technology, and hygiene.

One topic will be of special importance: the significance of architecture in healthcare. To meet legal and practical requirements yet create a building that can be efficiently administered, it is important that the planning is process-oriented and involves all disciplines – especially in hospital construction. The convention will give delegates the opportunity to discuss these issues with leading experts from the sector.

Where: The Squaire, Frankfurt 12, 60549 Frankfurt am Main, Germany

When: June 20-21, starting at 9:00 a.m.
