Designing for an Aging Population: New Emergency Departments on Cape Cod

Join us at NEHES on Tuesday, September 27 at 8:00 AM, as Martin Batt and Kevin Wyrsch from Isgenuity, and Ed Browne from Cambridge Health Alliance, will go over how to design for an aging population.

Hospitals are focusing delivery of care models towards geriatric patients to keep seniors ambulatory and connected to the community.
