The institute offers growth and development for healthcare facility management professionals who work in medical centers, community hospitals, retirement facilities and specialty clinics
For the second consecutive year, Camfil will sponsor the IFMA Health Care Institute (HCI), a member organization that brings together healthcare professionals specializing in facility management with the goal of enhancing their skills and finding ways to advance their careers through peer support.
The HCI also welcomes professionals working at specialty hospitals and clinics, hospital administrators, consultants, vendors, and students working at academic medical centers and community hospitals. HCI hosts live and online events provide industry news on relevant topics in the healthcare industry, gives professionals numerous networking opportunities, and conducts cutting-edge research.
“We’re proud to be a sponsor for HCI for the second straight year,” stated Dave Blackwell, Director of Market Segments at Camfil USA. “We look forward to a full slate of events in the new year, including regional hospital and medical facilities summits in Charlotte on March 7, Cleveland on April 12, and Minneapolis on May 23. HCI provides valuable education, training, and research for all healthcare professionals, but focuses on the importance of effective facility management.”
HCI provides education and training in healthcare design, construction, facility management and real estate strategies in partnership with Square Footage, to provide effective best practices for building and operating healthcare facilities. The institute has also created webinars to keep healthcare professionals updated on the most important trends in the industry. HCI also offers networking opportunities by bringing together healthcare facilities management teams with professionals in all areas of facility design, construction, finance, and technology.
“Facility management is one of the keys to operating a functional healthcare facility,” Blackwell added. “The design and layout of a facility are one of the key elements of good indoor air quality. Proper room design improves airflow, and aids in the efficiency of a facility’s HVAC system. We recognize that improving air quality in the healthcare industry is possible when there is a focus on maintenance concepts and best practices for integrating staff and patients within the confines of a facility.”
HCI is a council within the International Facility Management Association (IFMA), the largest facility management professional organization in the world, with more than 24,000 members in 100 countries. The IFMA offers certification programs, educational courses, and conferences, and also conducts research into trending issues in facility management.
