Orlando Health will Discuss the Deployment of a Facilities Capital Planning Solution to Help Justify Funding Requests
BOSTON—January 23, 2013—VFA, Inc., the leading provider of end-to-end solutions for facilities capital planning and asset management, today announced it will host a complimentary webinar on building the case for a facilities capital planning solution on Thursday, January 24, 2013, at 2 p.m. ET.
Don Paschal, director of corporate engineering at Orlando Health, a VFA client, will discuss how he and his team deployed a facilities capital planning solution to make better decisions regarding capital investments, produce reports that validate and defend their case for funding, justify an annual Capital Asset Renewal and Replacement Plan, and gain a holistic view of the facilities condition across the portfolio. Orlando Health is central Florida’s fifth largest employer with five leading community hospitals, three nationally recognized specialty hospitals and one world-class cancer center.
Facility managers are constantly under pressure to justify budgetary needs when requesting funding, but they face the challenge of obtaining the necessary accurate, relevant and credible facility data. Many organizations continue to rely on subjective in-house knowledge of the assets and systems, but find that this does not provide convincing validation for key decision makers. To effectively obtain the necessary funding, empirical data on facility condition, deferred maintenance requirements and capital renewals are needed. With it, organizations can provide sound and irrefutable evidence to validate funding requests.
