In the healthcare industry, the need to expand and redesign your medical office setup is usually a sign that your business is doing well. But getting bigger through remodeling can be fraught with potential difficulties for the uninitiated or unprepared.


On the front end, there's the planning required for a medical office design setup. You have to develop a realistic timeline for everything from construction to delivery of furniture and supplies.


Then there's the question of how to keep the project moving all the way through to completion: What will you do if there are unforeseen backorders or a subcontractor hits a snag that slows your schedule? What happens if a permit you thought you had didn't come through as expected?


Here, we'll take a look at a number of common challenges healthcare organizations encounter when they try to remodel or expand, and provide guidance around proven solutions.


While growing a practice of any size is a lot more complicated than maintaining the status quo, the rewards that come with evolving are usually worth it — and well within reach if you know where to start.


Chapter 1 | Expand and deliver: Reasons to go

Whatever the driving forces are, it's important to understand that what works for one organization may not translate to success for another. Before you do anything else, be sure that your decision to renovate or expand is based on what's best for your practice. 


Chapter 2 | Prepare for success: Anticipate the challenges

Once you've made the decision to remodel or expand, the next step usually involves substantial pre-planning. Be sure to stay ahead of potential problems by addressing common pain points in advance of project launch.


Chapter 3 | The dos and don'ts of medical office remodeling

Chapter 4 | From the start: Top priorities

Once you've established the big picture and addressed what you can in the pre-planning stage, you're ready to get the project started. Be sure to set realistic expectations, while still being flexible.
