ABSTRACT
The article reports on the status of hospital construction industry in 2011. The 2009 recession has led to a slow-down in healthcare building construction and although access to capital has improved, organizations are reportedly wary of spending due to the changing nature of health care. This uncertainty was evident in a dip in new construction in 2011, the increase in renovation or expansion of hospital construction projects and the focus on the upgrade of infrastructure, with an emphasis on information technology (IT) infrastructure. INSET: WIRELESS TECHNOLOGIES.
