Healthcare Regulatory Compliance
While administrators of healthcare institutions work to maintain safe facilities, keeping up with the demands of changing industry regulations can be a challenge.
A Facility Lifeline
We work with clients to provide a lifecycle approach to regulatory compliance. Through this practice, the representatives of a healthcare system work with the Gannett Fleming leadership team to identify potential deficiencies as part of regular operations and develop plans to correct any issues. We also assist clients with immediate, pressing needs if a crisis should occur. Regulatory compliance can save lives, save money, build patient trust, improve image, reduce personnel stress, and position a facility for a state of continuous readiness. Facilities that do not comply with regulatory requirements run the risk of jeopardizing patient care, closing down, losing business market share, and making costly unexpected repairs.
