The Retailization of Healthcare

By Coker Barton, Senior Vice President Healthcare and Stacey Berthon, Senior Vice President Retail

There is a new trend toward retail-based healthcare, driven by consumers taking a more active role in healthcare decisions and seeking care on their own terms.  This retailization of healthcare is pushing health providers to look at their services from a consumer point of view and to “compete” against other medical providers to provide the quickest and most convenient care.

Senior Vice President of Healthcare Coker Barton and Senior Vice President of Retail Stacy Berthon sat down to discuss what they’ve seen in their respective markets, how this shift is creating a crossover in the way both healthcare and retail developers operate, and what the construction industry is doing to help provide the facilities that people seek and need.
