Abstract

Healthcare is currently in the midst of a construction boom. An increasing number of hospitals are being constructed using the principles of evidence-based design to improve the quality and safety of patient care while at the same maximizing efficiency. As the McGill University Health Centre embarks on a redevelopment journey, performance measurement has been deemed to be a key requirement for monitoring progress toward established objectives. This article discusses the role played by performance measurement in supporting the redevelopment project. Specifically, the importance given to performance measurement, the need for a performance evaluation framework, a description of the framework and the measurement process are presented.
