How can we transform the delivery of cancer care to best serve the patient and community? Is perception reality when it comes to change management? What is the impact of art and furniture on the imaging experience? How can we close the feedback loop between post occupancy and design delivery? Eleven HKS healthcare practice leaders will be part of key conversations that will take place at the 2013 Healthcare Design Conference, to be held November 16-19 in Orlando.

Healthcare Design Conference 2013 is the premier event devoted to how the design of responsibly built environments directly impacts the safety, operation, clinical outcomes and financial success of healthcare facilities now and into the future. This year's conference will provide the latest in evidence-based design, LEED certification requirements, Lean design strategies, incorporating new technologies in design and much more.
