The International Summit & Exhibition on Health Facility Planning, Design & Construction (PDC) attracts more than 3,200 senior leaders from hospitals, design firms and construction companies to share perspectives on optimizing healing environments.

Much like Health Facilities Management magazine’s broad readership, the PDC Summit is the only conference in the field that offers balanced representation of the full health care planning, design and construction team, including hospital administrators, architects, interior designers, construction specialists and facilities management professionals, that mirrors the collaborative approach needed for building and renovating today’s increasingly complicated health care facilities.

Organized by the American Society for Healthcare Engineering (ASHE) of the American Hospital Association, the PDC Summit is hosted in collaboration with a trusted network of nonprofit organizations with expertise in health care planning, design and construction, including ASHE, the American Institute of Architects/Academy of Architecture for Health, American College of Healthcare Architects and the Center for Health Design.

What’s more, fully 100 percent of all conference revenue is reinvested into the mission of optimizing the health care physical environment.

Scheduled for March 25-28 in Nashville, Tenn., the event offers attendees 70 educational sessions and workshops from which they can earn up to 2.3 continuing education units in subject areas such as construction and renovation, patient experience, behavioral health, population health, regulation and compliance, safety and quality, and Facility Guidelines Institute issues. 

This, of course, is not to mention thought-provoking keynote and general sessions on leadership, regulatory issues, emergency management and more; an exhibition hall featuring more than 300 solution providers; and a wide range of networking opportunities.
