Tracy Altemus, Executive Vice President, Healthcare Brokerage Services and Jamie Krahne, Regional Manager for Ensemble Real Estate Solutions recently collaborated on writing a chapter in “The Textbook of Urgent Care Management” by John Shufeldt M.D. J.D., MBA, FACEP. Altemus and Krahne provided their industry expertise for a chapter in the textbook titled “Building out an Urgent Care Center.”
“I was delighted that Tracy and Jamie agreed to participate in this textbook,” said Shufeldt. “Ensemble has a long history of health care leadership and their willingness to share that knowledge is axiomatic of their customer-centric approach and professionalism.”
The textbook was written as a comprehensive guide to starting, owning, operating and selling an urgent care business. In each chapter industry professionals provide perspectives on their particular area of expertise and include “10 Key Points” which highlight the most critical components of the subject matter. The textbook is meant to be a resource for those managing an urgent care business and assist them in defining a problem, creating solutions and measuring outcomes.
”Throughout our careers at Ensemble, we’ve assisted many of our clients with their build-outs,” said Tracy Altemus. “So when Jamie and I were approached about writing this chapter, we were pleased to assist in providing our insight into the best build-out practices we have observed over the years and hope that it serves as a valuable resource to those who are thinking of opening an urgent care center.”
In the “Building Out an Urgent Care Center “ chapter authored by Altemus and Krahne they detail everything involved in the process of constructing an urgent care center from timing, identifying project delivery, approval process, qualifying contractors, permitting, bidding, funding, close out and final delivery.
