Macro’s Nisan Gertz Moderates Panel Discussion on National Healthcare Expansion & Innovation

Macro Senior Partner Nisan Gertz moderated a panel discussion of construction and design professionals at Bisnow’s National Healthcare Conference in Philadelphia.

Nisan Gertz moderates panel during the Bisnow National Healthcare Conference

Gertz pointed out that healthcare real estate makes up about 8% to 10% of all the money spent on commercial real estate in the US – a figure that underscores the importance of the industry to the national economy.

The spirited conversation then centered on the issues and challenges of how to design to and meet the needs of newly identified patient/customers, who need to be recruited and retained, as opposed to treated and released.  This, the group agreed, puts more pressure on the design elements of their buildings than ever before.

With the stakes so high and guidance in short supply, designers are looking more to retail for inspiration, just like developers. Retail is adjusting to the changing customer base, and so must healthcare.  One of the bigger weapons retailers have in understanding their clients is the emerging revolution in data, and healthcare builders and designers need to follow suit.

Additional speakers and panelists represented companies including Anchor Health Properties; Cooper Robertson; Crow Company; DPR Construction; EwingCole; The Davis Group; Healthcare Development; HFF; Jersey City Medical Center; NBBJ; Nemours/Alfred I. duPont Hospital for Children; Physicians Simone Virtua Health System; Realty Trust; Trammell WomenHeart: The National Coalition for Women with Heart Disease; Transwestern VMG Health; Revista; and Welltower

Macro’s Bill Van Horn Discusses “Retailization” of Healthcare

Macro Director, Project Management Bill Van Horn was a featured panelist at yesterday’s New Jersey Healthcare Expansion Forum, held at the Metropolitan Room at the Newark Club.

Bill Van Horn (second from left) responds to a question at yesterday’s NJ Healthcare Expansion Forum. Also pictured are (l to r): Bill Colgan, Community Healthcare Associates; Fady Barmada, Array Advisors; Kenneth Rosen, Lowenstein Sandler.

Bill addressed specific challenges healthcare clients are facing, pertaining specifically to the current shift in reimbursement models from fee-for-service (or “sick care”) to managed population health (or “wellness care”).

“It’s like driving a car and overhauling the engine at the same time,” explained Bill to attendees.  “With this model, our healthcare clients receive a fixed amount of money per year for managing a given condition – diabetes, for instance. They are under enormous pressure to mitigate the risk of having to provide expensive treatments by capturing the widest pool of patients possible and keeping them well. This makes speed-to-market imperative, with facilities that provide the lowest cost environment for any given treatment.”

Along with Macro, other panelists include senior real estate executives from Community Healthcare Associates and Array Advisors. Additional panelists include industry leaders from Walgreens, Atkins Companies, Cooper University Hospital, Rendina Healthcare Real Estate, and Dewberry.

Macro Celebrates Philadelphia as a World Heritage City

Macro Consultants was on-hand yesterday as a proud attendee and sponsor as the City of Philadelphia and the Global Philadelphia Association (GPA) commemorated Solidarity Day of World Heritage Cities in front of 450 representatives from city and state government. During the event, John Smith, Board Chair of GPA, presented the GPA’s World Heritage Strategic Plan. The goals include:

  • Promoting preservation and appreciation of Philadelphia’s geographical, historical and cultural heritage through the World Heritage City designation and continued education;
  • Providing a powerful economic and cultural stimulus to the region; and
  • Inspiring citizens and residents to feel pride in their World Heritage City.

In November 2015, Philadelphia was named a World Heritage City, the first in the United States.  There are two requirements for this status. First, the city must have within its boundaries a location that has been found by the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) to have “outstanding universal value” – a standard met by Independence Hall.  Second, Philadelphia also needed to become a full member of the Organization of World Heritage Cities (OWHC), which happened last fall.

Macro Joins Volunteers around the World for 15th Annual Comcast Cares Day

This past weekend, Macro colleagues, friends and family joined thousands of volunteers coast to coast and around the world for the 15th annual Comcast Cares Day. First launched in 2001 with 6,100 volunteers helping to improve about 100 community sites, this year more than 100,000 volunteers turned out to beautify neighborhoods, spruce up schools, plant trees, stock food banks, and much more.

Macro volunteered at sites in Philadelphia, as well as the New York City Metro area.

The impact of Comcast Cares Day is felt throughout 39 states and in 22 countries around the world. In the United States, it is the largest single-day corporate volunteer event. In the 15 years since it was established, more than 700,000 volunteers have dedicated over four million hours of service.

Macro’s Founding Principal Michael Fromm participated last week in Bisnow’s Construction & Development Update. The event was held at New World Stage in Midtown Manhattan. Michael’s panel focused on the drive to deliver amenities once unheard of in office buildings (such as swimming pools, cafes and dedicated fitness facilities), as well as addressing tenant demands when it comes to sustainability.

Macro Completes Meadows Office Build-Out – Lipstick Building, New York, NY

Meadows Office Interiors, a WBE certified company, recognized for its office furniture design services, called upon Macro to help build out its new office in New York City. This was a complete build-out comprising ~13,000 square feet. An added challenge was that Meadows required the space to serve not only as its Manhattan Headquarters, but as a working showroom, as well. With Macro’s unique value engineering and approach to creative cost savings, this project was completed under budget.

Meadows held its grand opening on Tuesday, September 29, opening its doors to friends and colleagues, representing a wide range of industry representation.
