HEALTHCARE

Healthcare providers and professionals are grappling with a host of trends: growing and ageing populations with higher levels of chronic conditions, greater application of medical technology, rising labour costs and evolving consumer expectations.

Balancing patient-centric and future-driven care packages with commercial imperatives, RLB draws on deep experience, best practice benchmarks and innovative thinking to ensure healthcare projects deliver best value for money.

Future thinking supports long-term savings

In many countries, more than 10% of gross domestic product is spent on healthcare. As expenditure rises by around 5% each year, the sector is facing serious cost pressures. Capital construction cost is another component of healthcare – and this is where RLB can draw on our deep experience and detailed benchmarks to bend the cost curve in the right direction. Our skilled specialists work with clients to establish and maintain accurate construction budgets, procure value-for-money contractors and keep a close eye on costs, including the important aspects of design revenue and lifecycle cost impacts. Our expertise routinely reduces construction prices by 5% or more, and helps to deliver designs embedded with long-term savings.

The best ideas inspire great places for people

Consumer expectations are evolving, with personalised care packages delivered conveniently and close to home. Advancing technologies like artificial intelligence and telehealth enable earlier diagnosis and easier consumer access, bringing with them new and evolving care models focused on prevention and wellness. Whether it’s a large-scale hospital or a smaller, co-located facility in a local community, RLB’s talented team applies new technology and fresh thinking to create the best places for people.

Industry intelligence drives innovation

Our team of specialists has worked across all facets of the healthcare sector at senior levels and brings deep knowledge of clinical and operational requirements to deliver integrated solutions.
