Rancho Las Palmas Resort & Spa - Palm Springs, CA
Innovation is born out of collaboration…and what better place to come together than beautiful Palm Springs. The relaxed, intimate vibe of the Rancho Las Palmas Resort allowed real estate & facilities leaders from the nation’s top healthcare providers and supplier companies to escape the daily grind and connect.
 
“Well-organized, and thought-provoking–a step up from other conferences, with a much higher level of thinking and exposure. It’s the best conference I’ve been to in a while,” said Braid Lahr, Division Chair of Facilities at the Mayo Clinic.
 
TED-inspired talks and peer-driven discussions centered on innovations in planning, design, and construction. Attendees praised both the cutting-edge content and quality networking, which made the three-day retreat a true meeting of the minds.
 
“There’s a lot of healthcare owners here that I don’t see at other conferences. These are people I want to learn from and it’s really valuable to get the chance to ask what makes them successful,” said Patrick Casey, Executive Director of Planning, Design & Construction at University of Mississippi Medical Center.
 
Suppliers also valued uninterrupted one-on-one time with leading health systems.
 
“There was such a great mix of attendees that can help define the needs of the facility, as well as take definitive actions to move an opportunity forward,” said Fawn Staerkel, Healthcare Director at Johnson Controls.
 
“Everyone we met was a decision maker in their organization,” said Stuart Baur, Associate Principal at Payette.

"Well planned and organized! It’s learning what people have learned from their experiences. What worked... what didn’t work...and then trying not to repeat those mistakes, but also learn to take risks to try new ideas."

"There is No Comparison. This is the type of show where you really spend quality time and decision makers are there. You’re focused on getting deals done and you are not wasting their time and they are not wasting your time. It’s really more strategic and that is important."
