JLL has published the 2022 Outpatient Fit Out Guide. Available at jll.com, the guide is a data-driven tool created to help healthcare organizations understand the full cost of renovating an outpatient facility in every major city across the U.S.
Specifically, the guide explores the costs associated with one of the strongest trends in healthcare: decentralizing a wide variety of care from hospitals to high-quality facilities within patients’ communities. This guide provides an average build-out cost nationally for outpatient care centers, broken into relevant cost categories, as well as supplying modifiers for higher-intensity medical uses.
In addition, the following key trends are explored:
Outpatient demand is surging in the Sunbelt
Austin tops the list of growth markets
Outpatient volume forecasted to grow 28.2% by 2025 and average fit-out cost of $304
Telehealth adoption requires new digital infrastructure and design considerations
Patients want both options: telehealth and physical office visit
Physical therapy outpatient facilities are experiencing the most momentum, with 39% growth projected over the next 10 years
