CLEVELAND - Johnson Controls, the global leader in building efficiency, will anchor Cleveland Medical Mart's Clinical Spaces third floor, highlighting how integrated technologies impact the patient care experience and reduce operational and energy costs.
"Healthcare organizations face an unprecedented set of challenges, including declining reimbursements and the uncertainty of healthcare reform. Our customers must provide uncompromising patient care while finding ways to improve clinical outcomes and operational efficiency," said James Dagley in a news release, vice president of channel marketing & strategy for Johnson Controls. "The Medical Mart aligns with that mission and helps us showcase our blueprint for the hospital of tomorrow to customers, partners and staff."
Scheduled to open in the fall of 2013, the Medical Mart will drive innovation in healthcare through technology exhibits, educational programs and virtual offerings.
The four-story, one-million square foot conference center is located in downtown Cleveland and includes showrooms, exhibit halls and a grand ballroom.
"Johnson Controls is the global leader in state-of-the-art building systems and is representative of the world-class, innovative leaders in the healthcare industry that will make up the core of the Medical Mart tenant base," said Jim Bennett, MMPI, senior vice president.
"Coming on the heels of last month's Medical Mart tenant announcement welcoming GE Healthcare and the Cleveland Clinic, the commitment by Johnson Controls represents yet another defining moment for this project," added Cuyahoga County Executive Ed FitzGerald.
