WASHINGTON, D.C. – April 12, 2016 – (RealEstateRama) — The Building Owners and Managers Association (BOMA) International will be offering attendees of the upcoming 2016 Medical Office Buildings + Healthcare Real Estate Conference insight into the rapidly changing healthcare real estate sector through a wide range of education sessions, networking opportunities and keynote presentations. The conference will take place May 2-5 at the Hilton Orlando in Orlando, Florida, and attendees will have the opportunity to tour the nearby Lake Nona Medical City, a 650-acre health and life sciences park known for its premier medical care, research and education.
This year’s conference will focus on the unprecedented changes taking place in healthcare delivery and what the future of healthcare real estate might look like. The three-day program includes keynote presentations, topical general sessions and breakout sessions organized in five education tracks: Capital Markets; Compliance & Regulations; Leasing & Management; Provider Strategies and Design Innovation. Offered for the first time last year, the Design Innovation track explores repurposing space for medical uses; reducing construction and operating costs; and creating welcoming, aesthetically pleasing environments to enhance the patient experience.
Offering industry professionals some insight into a turbulent political climate, Charlie Cook, political analyst and publisher of The Cook Political Report, will deliver Wednesday’s Keynote Lunch address on what impact the 2016 elections could have on healthcare real estate. The following day, Stephen Klasko, M.D., M.B.A., will talk about transformations in the healthcare industry during the closing keynote address. Klasko is the president and CEO of Thomas Jefferson University and Jefferson Health in Philadelphia, and he will share his perspective on leading change in the new age of clinical care delivery and creating better patient experiences.
The general session will feature a panel of Florida health system executives, who will discuss how Florida—a growing state with the highest percentage of residents over the age of 65—offers lessons and insights for other states in how to deal with an increasing population that demand high levels of care.
The Medical Office Buildings + Healthcare Real Estate Conference is the largest, most respected healthcare real estate conference in the industry. Each year, a diverse crowd of more than 1,000 attendees—including real estate professionals from health systems, brokerage and service firms, developers, investors and financiers, architectural firms and advisory firms—gathers to stay up-to-date on the latest innovations and trends, and gain insight into the future of healthcare real estate.
“As healthcare services continue to migrate from hospitals to non-traditional settings, healthcare real estate professionals need all the information and resources they can get to stay one step ahead of the market transformation taking place,” said Scott Evans, Executive Vice President of Realty Trust Group and co-chair of the conference. “BOMA’s Medical Office Buildings + Healthcare Real Estate Conference continues to offer those in the industry the best-in-class education led by industry experts and the best networking and business development opportunities available to maintain a competitive edge.”
