Healthcare and social welfare premises and welfare technologies
Whether the vision is to build a smart hospital or update a health centre to the modern day, we will guide the investment project successfully through all stages from vision outlining to designing and implementation.
Take an investment project to the finish line with the help of experts
Digitalisation fundamentally transforms how healthcare and social welfare services are provided, and how the added value of services is created in the future. Many hospitals, health centres and other premises in use were built in the 60s and 70s. They do not correspond with the needs of the modern service provision.
The expenses regarding premises make up a rather small portion of the total expenses in the healthcare and social welfare service provision, and it has therefore been proven that less than 10% improvement in the productivity will gain savings that cancel out the investment expenses of new premises. For this reason, a significant healthcare and social welfare’s new construction and renovation effort is currently taking place in Finland.
Understanding the special needs of the healthcare and social welfare sector, vendor-independency, and strong technological know-how have led Salivirta to be part of significant investment projects. We do not provide construction services or construction planning services. Instead, our expertise lies in how technology is harnessed to support the healthcare and social welfare operations in premises. We are a trusted consultant to our clients whose vision is to build smart premises that enable an efficient provision of services.
Our experience includes creating a vision of smart healthcare and social welfare premises and implementing several visions together with Finland’s leading constructors. Due to our expertise and vendor-independency, we can truly work as our clients trusted partner in healthcare and social welfare investment projects, now and in the future.
Independent help from designing to implementing healthcare and social welfare premises
Construction projects are large entities that require vision of the future demands in healthcare and social welfare sector as well as of the development of technology. We have been part of several significant hospital projects in Finland and therefore we know what a successful investment project of healthcare and social welfare premises requires, and what are the common pitfalls in these projects.
Whether the vision is to build a smart hospital or update a health centre to the modern day, we will guide the investment project successfully through all the stages from vision outlining to planning, constructing and implementing.
