The facility master plan: a road map for your future.Psychiatr Hosp. 1991 Summer; 22(3):103-6.PH
Current and anticipated changes in the mental healthcare delivery system demand a comprehensive facility planning process. As reimbursement for acute care decreases and the influence of managed care increases, most private psychiatric hospitals will need to develop a facility master plan to best use their current buildings and property. The facility master plan will become a road map and provide a logical route for expanding, modifying, and using current hospital assets during the changes imminent in the years ahead.
