Every year, the American Society for Healthcare Engineering (ASHE) hosts the International Summit & Exhibition on Health Facility Planning, Design & Construction (PDC Summit). The summit brings together professionals from a variety of backgrounds to discover new ways to create value for the healthcare built environment.
Since making a huge announcement about joining forces last November, the PDC Summit 2015 will be the first time Haskell and FreemanWhite attend the annual conference together as one team.
To showcase the strength of this newly expanded team, FreemanWhite shares two of their leaders, Mark Furgeson and Michelle Mader as speakers in the Delivering Value to the Executive Level session track of the conference. This track provides high-level guidance for bending the cost curve for healthcare facilities and specific strategies for delivering value to healthcare's C-suite.
