Program: Construction in the Healthcare Industry and the Impact of COVID-19

Michelle Mader – Catalyst, Mark Allnutt – Haskell, and Chris Morales – Freeman White

This panel discussion will be a comprehensive look into the construction industry, where the funds are being allocated, and reevaluating the types of projects being funded. They will also dive into the changes in designs and the impact that has on the industry and patients. Lastly, they will conclude with how Jacksonville is unique and what exactly that means for our community.
