Healthcare Architects Focus of Equipment Planning Initiative

DALLAS, TX--(Marketwire - October 9, 2007) - HELP Equipment Planners, one of the nation's leading medical equipment planning and consulting firms, has created a formal program designed to enable HELP to work more effectively with their healthcare architect clients and partners throughout the project development process.

"Having completed over 1,200 healthcare projects over the past 25 years, we clearly understand the vital role that the healthcare architect plays in the development of any new medical facility," states Rodney Cadwell, HELP President. "With that in mind, we have created a state-of-the-art program designed to link every aspect of equipment planning discipline directly to the specific design work being performed by the project architect at any time."

HELP's experienced project teams utilize their industry leading software program (HELPro©) to effectively manage all aspects of the equipment planning discipline, from budgeting, programming, planning to the procurement and installation of all medical equipment.

"It is imperative that we deliver projects to our healthcare clients on the agreed upon budgets and timetables. Our reputation also depends on delivering facilities that provide exceptional efficiency and quality standards," stated AMB Development Group CEO Jack Amormino. "Having a company that can reliably manage the medical equipment specification, budgeting, procurement and installation process, as part of the overall development team, is paramount to our ability to move a project forward successfully. HELP has contributed to dozens of our success stories over the years."

With in-house Auto-CAD capabilities, a technical staff to support the project managers, and the most accurate and current database of medical equipment pricing and technology, HELP is able to meet the needs of the project architect from the outset through completion of the project.

"Whether the project is an ambulatory surgery center or an acute care hospital, you follow the same set of strict guidelines that ties the equipment planning activities to the deliverables of the architect," adds HELP CEO Larry Hampton. "The HELP system ensures that the project stays on track, that nothing is missing through the process, that the architect is getting the information they need in an accurate format early in the process, and that the owner is saving both time and money throughout the process."

"HELP combines their vast experience, a high level of business ethics and a thorough understanding of the medical equipment business with cutting edge technology. They provide reliably accurate equipment data which enables the architectural/engineering team to effectively perform their job. This, in addition to the great pricing they get via their national purchasing contracts, allows the Owner to save time and money through reduced changes and mistakes during construction," stated Boulder Associates Principal Bob Owens.
