Plano, TX-based LifeCare Health Partners engaged JLL in a full-scale, integrated facilities management agreement. JLL will provide services to 19 freestanding and “hospital-in-hospital” facilities that serve chronically ill and medically complex patients in nine states.
LifeCare’s Frank Battafarano says, “Through this partnership, we are adopting a strategic, holistic approach to facilities management that will help us reduce operating costs and compliance risks while improving the patient experience. We will rely on JLL’s team of healthcare experts, which includes former Joint Commission leaders who possess deep healthcare operational experience and understand the critical role of the physical environment in improving patient outcomes.”
The five-year agreement includes maintenance, security, oversight of Environmental Services (EVS), physical plant, capital planning and data-driven technology services. This partnership will provide LifeCare with greater efficiency and an improved ability to enhance comfort and trust among patients and visitors.
