ASHE and IFMA release benchmark results

HOUSTON — The American Society for Healthcare Engineering (ASHE) of the American Hospital Association (AHA) and the International Facility Management Association (IFMA) announced the release of “Operations and Maintenance Benchmarks for Health Care Facilities,” according to a press release.

A cooperative effort between ASHE and the Health Care Council of IFMA, the report provides relevant hospital operations data that health care engineers can use to compare their operations to those of other similar institutions and make the case for capital investment and resource allocation in the boardroom, the release stated.
 
The report takes an in-depth look at health care facility age and location, utility costs and practices, maintenance costs and staffing, environmental services, waste streams, linen services and operational costs, the release noted.
 
“Our goal was to make it far easier for facility professionals to justify the needs of their departments to the C-suite by using the language executives understand,” said Todd Wilkening, director of facilities at Ridgeview Medical Center in Waconia, Minnesota, who helped develop the survey and report.
 
“Facilities departments don”t simply generate expenses — they also bring tremendous value — and their actions can make a key difference in maximizing an organization”s cash flow,” Wilkening added.
