Hospital Facility Maintenance Management

Program Overview:

Facility management is a field that encompasses multiple disciplines to ensure functionality, comfort,
safety, and efficiency of the built environment by integrating people, place, process, and technology.
Facility management involves a range of third-party providers that must be carefully managed especially
in hospitals and healthcare sector. Facility management (FM) offers for hospitals a chance to reduce costs and to increase quality, process
sequences, employee motivation, and customer satisfaction. It is an integrated innovative approach to
operating, maintaining, improving, and adapting the buildings and infrastructure of the hospitals in order
to create an environment that strongly supports the primary objectives of that organization.
As a critical element in the successful delivery of medical care, the development of the FM tools in the
hospitals will raise the effectiveness of healthcare service delivery. FM should achieve zero defects to
ensure the 24-hour operation of the hospital.
