Joe’s background as a facility consultant and commissioning agent (CxA) positions him to understand the complexities of the design, transition, and occupancy of complex medical facilities. He uses this facilities experience to provide unique insights as part of ECG’s Strategy and Business Advisory team.
At ECG, Joe focuses on the intersection of strategy and facilities and helps clients identify the facility elements needed to execute current strategies while planning for forecasted changes in market dynamics. Joe has collaborated on projects ranging from long-range, multihospital market strategies to hospital-specific activation and transition planning. This has enabled him to maintain expertise in the tactical components that keep a hospital operating while ensuring that decisions are made with high-level considerations at top of mind.
Before joining ECG, Joe worked at McKinstry Company in a facility consulting role. While there he managed several major hospital facility condition assessments, which resulted in actionable capital replacement plans prioritized to allocate resources based on system criticality, patient safety, and hospital mission. As a result of an updated equipment replacement methodology implemented for one hospital, Joe’s team was able to redirect client resources to replace a critical mechanical system for a 200-bed tower and to make significant modifications to better control temperature and humidity for the hospital’s suite of operating rooms.
