The future of healthcare is redefined in Eastern Long Island with a new campus plan
The Southampton Hospital Association joined forces with a local hospital to create a regional, coordinated network of care along the east end of Long Island. This evolving market is increasingly diverse and greatly impacted by seasonality. Challenges involved addressing increasing competition and an aging hospital overburdened by a large seasonal population. Their vision is to create an exceptional environment of care that is consistent across the network and enabled by advanced technology. Hallmarks of their vision include heightened access to quality care and a cost-effective care delivery model.
ERDMAN conducted an in-depth market analysis for physician supply and demand, as well as for emergency, surgical, diagnostic imaging, and acute care services. Our proprietary population demand methodology allowed the seasonal impact and associated operational effects to be understood and addressed. The resulting conceptual program and estimate aligned the new hospital with a target budget. The future hospital will reimagine how healthcare is delivered in the area.
Southampton Hospital Association engaged ERDMAN to facilitate a strategic planning process to reimagine how healthcare will be delivered on the east end of Long Island. Taking into account the seasonal shifts in population and unique geographic and access challenges of the area, ERDMAN translated the demand for acute care and ambulatory services into a new constellation of care.
The cornerstone of the work entailed right-sizing the conceptual plan and budget for our replacement hospital. The work not only helped us create a foundational program for our system of health and new hospital, but also brought together a diverse group of stakeholders to advance a unified vision to enhance care in the communities we serve.
