Coined as “the hospitals of the future” by the Wall Street Journal, micro-hospitals are 

independent, fully licensed & accredited acute care facilities capable of treating a wide range

of medical conditions similar in acuity to larger community hospitals.

  1. S M A L L F O O T P R I N T
    The term “micro” is applied because of the
    noticeably smaller building footprint
    which typically ranges from 20,000 to
    40,000 square feet and consists of 8 ER
    and 8 inpatient beds. The smaller
    footprint requires significantly less
    capital investment and real estate than a
    traditional hospital, and it allows for more
    flexibility in site selection.
  2. L O W C O S T
    Not only is the cost of construction lower
    but the overall operational cost to run
    these facilities is a small percentage of
    what traditional hospitals require. This is
    due largely in part to the unique, lean
    staffing model that is utilized.
    For the cost of a single traditional
    hospital, a health system could build a
    large network of micro-hospitals across a
    significant geographic area.
  3. S T R A T E G I C E X P A N S I O N
    Micro-hospitals can be deployed as part
    of an offensive strategy allowing health
    systems to rapidly expand into new
    communities at a fraction of the cost and
    time that would be required for more
    traditional buildings. Or from a defensive
    perspective, filling gaps between service
    areas to defend against competitive
  4. A C C E S S I B I L I T Y
    Micro-hospitals can reduce patient travel
    time and increase outreach, boosting the
    ability of health systems to reach new
    patients. Many organizations have used
    micro-hospitals to enter growing retail
    areas to provide convenient healthcare
    access where patients live, work, and
  5. P A T I E N T S A T I S F A C T I O N
    Micro-hospitals offer patients a premium
    experience that focuses on delivering high
    quality care in a manner that is more
    personable than what larger facilities can
    provide. Micro-hospitals consistently score
    significantly higher than their larger
    counterparts in patient satisfaction and can
    be utilized to raise the health system’s
    overall performance and drive patient
    loyalty and repeat business.
  6. IN T E G R A T I O N
    Increasing patient access points, microhospitals
    provide seamless transfer to
    higher levels of care with fully integrated
    medical record and better continuity of
    care for patients. The micro-hospital care
    team follows patients through transitions of
    care throughout the health system,
    delivering great service and supporting
    growth in both outpatient and inpatient
    services lines
