Each innovation will be included in a series of monographs published throughout 2018. The case study submitted by Hoar, Real Estate Strategies and HGA illustrates the use of predictive analytics and interactive mapping to identify unsaturated market areas full of unmet patient demand, overlays ideal payer mix projec- tions and forecasts future fi nancial success of new locations before real estate has been identifi ed. HIR, a program of the University Research Institute in Washington, D.C., and ASHE review abstracts each year, and then select a few to be more fully developed and presented to the indus- try.

Wi W A d f SUSTAINABLE EXCELLENCE Heromen30/Dreamstime E4H Environments for Health Architecture has merged with RSG Architects , an 18-year old fi rm focused on designing medi- cal facilities. RSG will continue to operate independently, but will have the advantage of being part of a national fi rm with offi ces in New England, New York, Tennes- see and Texas. Terracon has recently launched its healthcare sector. In 2017, the fi rm completed more than 3,000 healthcare projects, generating $23 million in revenue. Projects in- cluded improvements and compli- ance for existing facilities, as well as consulting for new facilities. A hospital expands, a historic building goes green, a soccer club makes a statement and a food storage facility survives a hurricane with the help of metal building materials. These and other case studies have been added to the 70+ case studies on the Metal Construction As- sociation website at metalcon- The American Society for Healthcare Engineering has been named an Energy Star Partner of the Year – Energy Ef- fi ciency Program Delivery Award winner. The organization provides resources and programs specifi - cally tailored for hospitals. Visit for more details. NSF International is developing standard NSF 444: Prevention of Injury and Disease Associated with Building Water Systems, in collaboration with more than 100 industry experts.

IN BRIEF BEST PRACTICES Practice Greenhealth has announced the winners of its annual Top 25 Environmental Excellence Awards. Winners range in size from large, urban, academic medical centers to critical access hospitals — but are all leading the country in addressing the links between the environment and human health — and have the programs, data and documentation to demonstrate their successes. These facilities have committed, engaged staff supporting these programs and also show leadership in their local communi- ties and across the healthcare sector. Award winners were chosen among hospital applicants that have the high- est scores on the Greenhealth Partner for Change application. Each year, the competition for these top spots increases, as a growing number of facilities implement creative, sus- tainable and replicable practices. *First time on the Top 25 list.
