Wk 1 Briefing: Facility Design Process
Homework Content
A few months ago, on the basis of your experience in a hospital business office, you were hired into a managerial position. You were
just starting to feel comfortable in the position when the administrator walked into your office to tell you the department is
outgrowing its quarters and must start planning an expansion project. The administrator also confided that she has never been
involved in such a project and that she does not have time to do any research. She wants you to do the initial legwork and put
together a briefing that will help her prepare a presentation for the board.
