Healthcare design has transformed over the years and Opal Group’s Healthcare Facilities Design Summit is addressing pertinent issues in the design and construction process of hospital and health systems. Industry leaders will come together to discuss the challenges and solutions involved in the design and construction stages while utilizing new delivery methods to create more efficient facilities.

This program is an invitation-only event that provides unparalleled face-to-face meetings with Executive Directors and Vice Presidents of Facilities, Construction, and Capital Planning of the largest hospitals and healthcare systems in the nation.
