Hammes has been a trusted advisor to healthcare organizations for nearly three decades offering a full range of strategic, market, real estate, and facility consulting services.

Bridging Vision with Implementation

In today’s environment, establishing a solid strategic position for the future has never been more important—or more challenging—for healthcare executives and their organizations. Accepting and continually adapting to the changing environment is the difference between healthcare organizations that thrive—and those that do not.

As the nation's leading healthcare development planning and implementation team, we leverage our comprehensive expertise to help health systems plan and execute new facilities and strategies - bringing innovations and lessons learned from each project. Hammes Precision® was developed out of the need to allow our partners to have leading-edge retail analytics incorporated with the latest healthcare utilization data to more accurately drive recommendations around market placement and real estate strategy.

Our team of professionals has deep, real-world experience having held leadership positions in healthcare strategy, real estate, marketing and finance. We are the bridge from service line and care delivery strategies to plans that reveal the implementation path and resources required to execute your vision.

Master Facility & Campus Planning

Master facility plans serve as a reliable blueprint to guide healthcare facility investments over a multi-year period, enabling organizations to reach their strategic goals. Few consultants have Hammes Healthcare’s comprehensive understanding of the healthcare provider’s business, their strategic and operational objectives and the ability to translate those objectives into a master facility plan.

While most traditional facility and campus master plans are created using a bottom-up approach, we approach master planning from the top down. We ensure plans are directly linked to the healthcare organization’s business strategy and financial priorities (or constraints), leveraging input from multiple stakeholders across the organization.

Similarly, Hammes supports space planning and programming with a thorough understanding of our clients’ current needs and challenges as well as their long-term strategic goals. Our real-world healthcare operations and clinical experience allows us to dig deeper to provide optimal space planning and programming recommendations that meet today’s needs as well as anticipated future needs.

Real Estate Optimization

Real estate accounts for a substantial portion of the assets on a healthcare organization’s balance sheet. Therefore, a strategic real estate management approach can represent significant cost savings. Given the ever-changing market dynamics healthcare organizations need to plan for, from the increase in virtual patient care delivery to potential changes in staffing models, healthcare executives are taking a close look at their real estate portfolios. What do we need? Do we have too much? Do we have too little? Do we have the infrastructure in place?

Hammes provides comprehensive real estate advisory services to help healthcare organizations create value by optimizing their real estate assets. The goal of this work is to align the organization's real estate platform with the market strategy, creating an efficient delivery network that meets the demands of population health while also being operationally efficient. Our approach not only helps health system's uncover opportunities to optimize their real estate portfolio, but also provides a detailed action plan and recommendations. Our goal is to prepare healthcare organizations to execute quickly when an opportunity presents itself.
