In an article published last week by GlobeSt.com, HSA PrimeCare president John Wilson explains how healthcare systems are working to reduce costs while preparing for a rapidly aging population and new patient needs.
According to Wilson, “…providers across the nation have largely shifted to a more patient-centered delivery model, with smaller, cost-efficient medical clinics doing much of the work once handled by big hospitals.

Wilson further describes some specific design choices that HSA PrimeCare’s healthcare clients are implementing in order to fulfill the increasing demands of their patients.
“Facility design has become much more thoughtful – a trend that manifests itself in a variety of ways, including the use of warmer colors, abundant natural lighting and amenities like on-site pharmacies and imaging services,” says Wilson. “Some outpatient facilities have also added fitness centers that can be used for physical therapy and preventative care.”
