About this event

Conserving Energy, Saving Money and Enhancing Patient Experience

HVAC Elements (O’Connor Company, G & R Controls and Balancing Professionals) is hosting a Healthcare Symposium on May 25-26, 2021 at the Hilton Garden Inn Downtown in Sioux Falls, SD. As we look to serve and inform the healthcare industry, we invite you to a two-day symposium on relevant building environment topics. Educational seminars will be held on May 25 from 12 noon to 6:00 p.m. and May 26 from 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon.

The event will kick off with Master of Architecture, Dr. Stephanie Taylor, MD, M. Arch as the keynote speaker. Dr. Taylor worked as a physician for several decades before obtaining her Masters in Architecture and Infection Control certification to gain a better understanding of the impact of a building’s environment on patient well-being. Currently her patient care commitment focuses on improving healthcare environments and workplace processes resulting in better patient outcomes and reduced risk to infectious disease.

Educational seminars will be offered from various HVAC experts who specialize in products used in healthcare applications. Topics include surgical suite equipment, humidity’s impact on hygiene, energy management and operational savings, chillers, filters, hot water system design and best practices in building automation. Professional Development Hours (PDHs) will be offered for each session.

A product showcase will be on display throughout the duration of the event for attendees to view and ask additional questions.

Event is free of charge, but we ask you to register for planning purposes. If needed, hotel room reservations can be made during the registration process.
