We have seen an increase in mergers, acquisitions and affiliations in recent years and the trend is undoubtedly here to stay.  How do these deals come about?  And what are the operational, branding and facility improvement plans for those hospitals post-deal?  Join us for this panel to hear insights from hospital systems who have or will be going through this process.

Founded by AIA California’s Healthcare Facilities Forum Committee in memory of their colleague, the Robert J. Kain Healthcare Design Education Scholarship, known as The Kain Scholarship, strives to encourage and support architecture students interested in pursuing a career in the design and delivery of hospitals and healing environments. With forces that continually shift and improve healthcare delivery, this scholarship opportunity supports the importance of developing the next generation of architects to create the innovative design and delivery needs of tomorrow’s healthcare facilities.

Prize:  $2,000 to help offset costs of higher education in architecture. Award can be used for qualified tuition and related expenses and/or to otherwise improve or enhance capacity, skill or talent in the field of healthcare architecture.
