The first big bang of 2019 in healthcare has come early with the formation of the Association of Medical Facility Professionals. The nonprofit has been formed by directors and leaders formerly associated with the Health Care Institute, which was an IFMA Alliance Partner.
AMFP is operating as an independent organization, with a mission to serve the needs of the healthcare built environment. Its newly launched website is amfp.info.
Besides national activities, which include its partnership with Healthcare Design Expo & Conference, AMFP has regional chapters in place to serve Central Florida, Chicago, North Texas, Southern California and Upper Midwest and expects more to launch soon. Chapters have already begun to plan programs in their regions.
Initial AMFP national leadership is comprised of:
President: Mike Wood, national director of construction, Medxcel
Vice President: Walt Vernon, IFHE executive committee member, CEO for Mazzetti
