Hospital Oriented Development

Hospitals in the US employ more than 6.7 million people, generate over $900 billion in revenue, comprise close to 5% of the US economy, and are often the largest employer in a community, but the typical hospital and land use policies fail to fully leverage the unique characteristics to maximize the benefits for the community.

Hospital Oriented Development (HOD) has the potential to transform one of the largest sectors of our economy into a hospital-centered supercharged economic development engine, a dynamic and resilient real estate model, an ecologically sound community, and a health promoting environment resulting in an unmatched quality of life for the 21st century.

Have a look at the article on Hospital Oriented Development featured on the CNU website.
