Co-hosted by the MHFPS- Massachusetts Healthcare Facility Professionals Society
Join us at MHA's Annual Design, Operations & Construction Conference where we'll provide the latest information on critical topics for hospitals. We’ll look at specifically disaster preparedness, planning for water & power failures and current projects of interest. We'll also take a deeper dive into what hospital facilities are doing on construction for behavioral healthcare, and for mitigating maintenance issues. This program always provides great education, information, and networking.
This conference is free of charge for facilities professionals employed by MHA member hospitals. We hope to see you there!
