We are excited to introduce Constructing with Care, a podcast for healthcare leaders.

Rapidly evolving realities—caring for an aging population, workforce shortages and burnout, increased uninsured, and lower reimbursement contracts—challenge healthcare providers to deliver care more efficiently at a lower cost, within an environment where capital investments are competing with other immediate priorities.

In our two-episode premiere focused on reducing the burden of disruption on a burnt-out workforce, our guests share with listeners their strategies to prioritize staff wellbeing and help avoid common nurse and physician stressors during a capital construction project.

In episode 1, Constructing with Care for a Burnt-out Workforce, Stanford Health Care’s Chief Nurse Executive and Vice President Patient Care Services, Dr. Dale Beatty shares his perspective on how the industry can best support providers and help avoid nurse and physician burnout. He also offers advice on how to thoughtfully incorporate a range of stakeholder voices into capital project planning to accommodate wellbeing.

In Episode 2, Beatty and DPR Construction's healthcare market strategy leader, Deb Sheehan, continue their conversation where they will discuss leaders’ responsibility to demonstrate outcomes from capital investments, using science and strategy as advantages in designing healing environments, and what every healthcare executive should watch out for during expansion and renovations.

I do think we have to find ways collectively, together to support our workforce, and some of the work that we're going to be talking about through building construction can certainly do that.
