Equipment budgeting is a critical element of the planning process because it establishes a monetary guideline to be followed for the duration of the project. It involves a departmentalized room-by-room listing of medical equipment requirements. Two key factors that directly impact the budget are the condition of existing equipment and the types of departments included in your project. Obviously, some departments are much more equipment intensive than others.
We believe in a consensus building approach while utilizing our hospital backgrounds to help decipher realistic needs versus “wish list” planning. Based on our experience, we routinely challenge user requests when appropriate. The final outcome is a comprehensive budgeting process that will lend monetary control to your building project.
