Tools to Help Transform Healthcare FM

The knowledge and expertise needed is skill based, not simply knowledge based. The successful healthcare facilities manager must be able to apply expertise to complex real-world situations.

Program Description
This course in Healthcare Facilities Management is designed to support construction, operation and maintenance of medical facilities in compliance with international standards. It is designed to prepare the individual for a high performing career in healthcare facilities leadership.

Strategic alignment between the goals of the healthcare/hospital organization utilizing the facilities, and the actions of the facilities organization supporting their operation is critical to success. The expertise for the development and operation of these facilities is the responsibility of the healthcare facilities manager. Without the right knowledge, skills and abilities this key leader cannot succeed. Yet succeed he or she must, if the larger healthcare organization is to succeed in its mission.

The knowledge and expertise needed is skill based, not simply knowledge based. The successful healthcare facilities manager must be able to apply expertise to complex real-world situations.

This exciting program combines text-based knowledge, with real-world situations to develop a blended learning workshop that accelerates the healthcare facilities manager’s development as a strategic partner to the leaders of the healthcare organization.
