The PDC Summit is the premier industry event for senior leaders involved in the planning, design, and construction of health care facilities. It unites over 3,200 professionals to address cutting-edge topics affecting the future of the health care built environment, and offers thought-provoking presentations that focus on cross-team collaboration, PDC sustainability, designing for future generations, and technology integration, to name a few.
We invite you to submit a presentation abstract to contribute to the value of the PDC Summit.
The 2014 PDC Summit will embody the theme "Building for the Ages." Its programming will focus on the structural value of the health care built environment over time, as well as better ways to serve a multi-generational population with different needs, abilities, and work-style preferences. The flow of the program also supports the summit theme, starting with strategy on Monday, then moving on to building and construction on Tuesday, and culminating to performance excellence on Wednesday.
