Momentum Continues for Maugel’s Expanding Health Care Practice

Posted by Robin Peters on Tue, Dec 01 , 2015

 It’s been a stellar year for Maugel Architects’ healthcare practice.  The firm attributes its growth to the move from centralized services, based at large academic medical centers, to a distributed model where health care is being delivered at the neighborhood level.

“Hospitals are expanding into the primary-care market by setting up urgent care facilities and/or primary care facilities that are feeders to hospital services,” said Jonathan Cocker, the head of Maugel’s health care practice. “With the Affordable Care Act, hospitals are starting to own, or are being closely affiliated with, primary-care practices and urgent care facilities. The hospitals handle the logistics of running the facilities and the doctors have more time to take care of patients, “added Cocker. “Capturing that build-out has been a major factor in our success this year.”

Maugel's Jon Cocker Discusses Impact of Health Care Reform

Posted by Robin Peters on Wed, Sep 16 , 2015

 

(This article originally appeared in the August 17th issue of the Worcester Business Journal

It's no mistake that, throughout Massachusetts, there's more hospital signage showing up either on commercial sites that had been something else, or on empty land that will give rise to satellite facilities under the umbrella of larger health care systems.

That, in turn, is creating new business for architects and construction companies.

Government pressure to reduce the costs of providing medical services has resulted in a building boom of free-standing medical facilities that provide medical services - particularly surgeries - that no longer need to be performed in a hospital setting.

When outpatient surgical centers debuted in Worcester several decades ago, their main attractions were lower costs and the promise of more efficient patient processing for those who could walk in and walk out.
