Abstract:

This document contains the results of two surveys aimed at studying the construction activities, maintenance needs, and procurement policies of the U.S. hospitals and long term care facilities. A similar study conducted in 1989 was used as a baseline of the trend analysis presented in portions of this study. This 1996 survey did not ask some of the questions which were posed in the 1989 survey. Likewise there were questions concerning the trends of spending projection, major facility maintenance problem areas, and the source of maintenance requirements that were added to this survey.
