FPC SEMINAR + EXPO 2024
FOR HEALTH CARE FACILITIES
There is a phenomenal expansion of Artificial Intelligence (AI) into the areas of health care design, construction, planning, and medical research. Radical technological changes are happening today that will impact the immediate future of architecture, engineering, contracting, and facility management. These changes will have far-reaching effects for years to come!
Are we on the verge of, as some say, a “Second Machine Age”? An age that will revolutionize the way we live and work? What can we learn now that will prepare us for a future permeated by the presence of AI?
From The Source
To find the answers to these, and other, questions around AI’s impact, join us to engage with visionaries, trailblazers, and industry experts who are shaping this technological landscape. Don't miss out on this opportunity to be part of a transformative event that promises to expand your mind and ignite your passion to embrace the future.
Don’t miss the Ask AHCA 2024 session to get the answers to AHCA’s code interpretations in the midst of unprecedented change. Take part in updated Architecture, Fire Safety, Mechanical, Electrical, and Facility Engineering sessions. Get a deep dive into each discipline to assist in AHCA approval for new projects, and earn continuing education certificates for boards and professional organizations.
This statewide annual conference has had a long and successful history of helping to improve the design and construction of health care facilities in Florida. Starting in 1983 and continuing for the past 39 years, it has consistently provided Florida design and construction professionals with the necessary training to successfully pass AHCA plans and construction reviews, has provided a setting where regulators and practitioners can meet, and where the latest trends, ideas, and research in health care design and construction are presented.
Thanks to the many Florida, national, and international speakers, this seminar continues to provide current and actionable information regarding concepts such as energy efficiencies, and resiliency from catastrophic events, new ideas in NICU design, Long Term Care culture change environments, family centered and directed care programs, and many other practices and design concepts that help create healthy and healing environments for both the community and the health care facility.
The final schedule for 2024 of speakers and presentations will be available on this website after May 1, 2024.
A New Name
Because these expanded subjects now go beyond the limited milieu of state agency regulatory issues, the name of this event has been updated from the AHCA Seminar & Expo to the FPC Seminar + Expo for the Design and Construction of Health Care Facilities.
Although the name has been revised, the FPC Seminar + Expo continues with the same Operational Team, Educational Sessions, Expo, CEHs, and Charity Golf tournament as years past.
NEW NAME, EXPANDED TOPICS
In Concert with the Goals of AHCA
We hope, with your interest, to grow the ASK AHCA Session each year so you can get the answers to your questions directly from the AHCA AHJs and receive more clarity on specific troubling code items. We look forward to seeing you again in Orlando at the Rosen Shingle Creek from September 29 - October 1, 2024 for another great FPC Seminar + Expo. Don’t waste a moment and take advantage of the exceptional value of the early bird rates by registering today!
The subject matter presented at the FPC Seminar remains closely aligned with the mission and goals of AHCA. AHCA staff from the Office of Plans and Construction and the Fire Safety Surveyors from the AHCA Field Offices continue to attend and participate in the social and educational sessions as we highlight specific sessions regarding AHCA codes, reviews and surveys.
