Facility Activation

Keeping track of the details . . . so you don’t have to.

Opening a new building is a time of excitement, as a new building may yield increased efficiency, improved patient care, enhanced service, and new technology.  However, it can also be fraught with risk.


As your facility activation specialist, HBS will work collaboratively with your executive and clinical leadership, and facilities department to provide the resources and expertise to help you save money and time during the crucial first patient/go-live period.
