We anticipate that the long-term healthcare design and construction market will enjoy steady increases due to two primary considerations: the aging and obsolescence of existing healthcare facilities, and the fact that as baby boomers age and their life expectancy is extended, a higher percentage of the population will be living with chronic medical conditions and will be accessing healthcare facilities for their care and rehabilitation.

A majority of our work is devoted to new replacement hospitals and expansions to existing facilities to accommodate increased capacity for both inpatients and outpatients. Additionally, the rise of “consumerism”-where patients are demanding a higher level of service associated with their healthcare choices-means that hospitals are investing in their facilities in order to provide more patient-centered amenities.

Other areas we are noting an upturn in activity is in specialty hospitals, notably children's hospitals and psychiatric facilities.

A significant growth area that HDR is pursuing is in the growth of academic medical centers-institutions that are combining research with clinical care-a concept called “translational medicine.” As the important connections are being made between quality patient care and the big breakthroughs in research, these “bench to bedside” facilities will become increasingly important as well.
