What is healthcare facilities management?
Healthcare facilities management is the maintenance of a healthcare facilities’ operations, security and development. This includes the complete upkeep of all buildings, including hospitals, hospices, clinics, surgeries, primary care centres and long-term facilities.
Supporting the healthcare industry
We provide our facility management services across all kinds of care centres in the UK. Our experience of working in a range of different sectors means that being versatile is at the forefront of our ethos. By learning the specific needs of each individual workplace, we can maximise our impact and gain the best results possible.
The healthcare industry is extremely broad, providing equipment, facilities and support for patients of varying ages and medical conditions. We understand that there are extremely specific requirements and standards that must be met in order to ensure a safe, clean environment in these establishments.
Our role is to provide support in any way we can. From managing simple day-to-day operations such as on-site repairs and maintenance to performing thorough inspections of medical gas, HVAC and refrigeration systems.
In addition to preventative maintenance, we will also be on hand to provide emergency support to healthcare buildings. Many healthcare institutions house patients overnight, which means emergencies such as power cuts or burst pipes will need to be swiftly dealt with so as not to impact the comfort of the guests. Our Helpdesk operates 24/7/365, which means we are always contactable at any time, day or night.
Environment of care
Any healthcare facility will stress the importance of providing an environment of care for patients. The primary goal is to create a safe and pleasant environment for both patients and staff members. As many employees stay on-site with patients overnight, the building must be comfortable for everyone who resides within it.
To ensure that the highest standards are maintained, we like to work closely with senior staff members to create a bespoke and detailed plan that will ensure health and safety compliance is met.
As a property management company, it would be our responsibility to regularly inspect areas of concern around the building, such as:
Indoor air quality
Healthcare after COVID-19
COVID-19 has had a profound impact on the hospitality industry, more so than it has on any other sector. Managing healthcare has become increasingly important and more difficult than ever to get right. With new regulations introduced to combat the spread of disease, there’s now even more for healthcare managers to consider.
We have kept up to date with all healthcare industry legislation, which means we are well-positioned to make sure your building complies with the new healthcare laws. From increased cleaning and hygiene standards to providing all staff with PPE, we can work as an extension of your team to give you the boost you need through this challenging period.

We understand how important it is for the healthcare industry to operate safely and efficiently. We provide a tailored service to every one of our clients, making sure that we attend to the real-time requirements for each working environment.
