About

IFMA’s Health Care Council (HCC) is a specialized networking group within the International Facility Management Association (IFMA), and is an association for professionals who manage health care facilities. Recognizing the critical role of FM in enabling health care operations, our mission is to effectively address the challenges of managing medical centers, hospitals, clinics, palliative care and related sites to enhance quality of caregiving.

Now over 230 members strong, HCC consists of hospital administrators, facility managers, design and construction professionals, consultants, vendors and students serving academic medical centers and community hospitals, retirement facilities, and specialty hospitals and clinics.
