This is the one conference with a balanced audience of C-level, design, construction, and operations professionals with more than two-thirds of attendees returning to the event each year.

PDC Summit programming offers cutting-edge topics affecting the future of the health care built environment and presents thought-provoking research and presentations focusing on cross-team collaboration, PDC sustainability, designing for future generations, technology integration, and more.

This year's PDC Summit programming will embody the theme "Building for the Ages." 2014 PDC Summit programming will focus on the structural value of the health care built environment over time, as well as better ways to serve a multi-generational population with different needs, abilities, and work-style preferences.

The 2014 PDC Summit will offer comprehensive sessions with specialized tracks that cover the spectrum of health facility planning, design, and construction. The summit is formatted to follow the natural progression of the PDC process for health facility projects and facility utilization. The flow of the 2014 PDC Summit also supports the programming theme, "Building for the Ages," by starting with strategy on Monday, then moving on to building and construction on Tuesday, and culminating to performance excellence on Wednesday.
