    The Golf Channel hit a hole in one with the revitalization of part of its Orlando campus. The channel turned to Walker Design LLC to create a high-functioning, multi-use space within a 1,200-square-foot area. The space holds conference and training areas plus a genius bar. It has fully integrated audio/visual technology, integrated writable surfaces for informal gatherings and multiple movable seating options that can house 150 occupants. The floor and ceiling patterns reflect lively, pixelated textures to contrast with and balance the static walls. Photography by Chad Baumer Photography.

Jeff Kent named president of Health Care Institute

Jeff KentThe Health Care Institute has appointed Jeff Kent, Managing Director Facilities, Nemours Foundation, as president of the association, effective immediately. Kent succeeds Mike Wood, CHC, MSM, BS, ARRT, RT, owner of Impact! Consulting, in this role.

Kent moves into his new role following Wood’s two-year term as president during which the association saw dramatic growth across a multitude of platforms. Since 2015, the association has leapt from one local chapter to seven, strengthened its support of leading U.S. conferences and international healthcare facility management organizations, and expanded its reach through a series of white papers, magazine articles and videos. Kent has played a pivotal role in each of these initiatives, and looks to build upon that momentum in his two-year term as HCI president.

“The Health Care Institute has developed a strong foundation for supporting its members with industry-leading education and networking opportunities,” Kent says. “In the year ahead, we’re looking to strengthen the resources available to our members and grow the conversation on how to best serve the evolving healthcare industry. I look forward to furthering this conversation through my new role at HCI.”

In his role at Nemours, Kent is responsible for everything from real estate to design and construction for all of the Nemours facilities, which span several states. Recently, that has comprised more than $750 million in projects, including a new hospital in Orlando, Fla., and a large addition to a hospital in Wilmington, Del. Originally from the Midwest, Jeff grew up in Columbus, Ohio, and earned his BA in architecture at Texas A&M University.

The Health Care Institute, an IFMA Council, is dedicated to enhancing the skills of and uniting professionals within the healthcare built environment. With members throughout the world, HCI serves a constituency that interacts directly with the business office and/or C-suite, and supervises multiple aspects of healthcare facilities management including healthcare facility design, construction, operations and real estate management.

HCI is the official partner of SquareFootage for a nationwide educational seminar series that has traveled to 25 different cities, resulting in a forum where facilities managers can problem solve with healthcare architects, designers, engineers, contractors and administrators.

The association’s members manage more than 37 billion square feet of property and annually purchase more than US$100 billion in products and services. Formed in 1980, IFMA certifies facility managers, conducts research, provides educational programs and produces World Workplace, the world’s largest facility management conference and exposition.
