Leadership and innovation in healthcare facilities management

My name is Edward Browne.

I have been a healthcare facility and engineering professional since 1986.

I have worked at hospitals that were small, single-purpose institutions to large, multi-campus healthcare groups in Massachusetts and Connecticut. Community hospitals to tertiary facilities.

Jobs change. Missions don’t.

While the way we do our jobs has certainly changed over nearly 30 years, what doesn’t change is the commitment to providing the absolute safest, cleanest, clinically excellent facility for our patients.

As healthcare engineers, we are called on to play a much larger role in the changing landscape of healthcare. C-level executives value our input because we bring our knowledge of how patients and staff use our facilities. By staying educated and aware of trends in our industry, we can make intelligent recommendations on everything from alternative energy to real estate portfolios.

Sharing our knowledge benefits us all.

Our industry thrives on cooperation, not competition. Our professional organizations such as ASHE, ACHE, and NEHES provide not only the chance to share ideas and learn from one another, but the chance to learn from industry leaders on best-practices.

I am trying to do my small part

I am starting to write articles about our industry. My small way of giving back. Please feel free to share them. I would appreciate a link back to my website, EdwardMBrowne.com.

If you have an idea for an article, please send me an email.
