Alyssa Scholz Scholz: “Part of the challenge moving forward will continue to be the reimbursement model and how providers can change or reinvent themselves.”

NEWPORT BEACH, CA—We are continuing to see the influx of healthcare facilities that are more community focused, providing greater access and even more convenience for patients, Alyssa Scholz, regional director of health and wellness for the Southwest region at Gensler, tells An industry expert in healthcare, Scholz brings more than two decades of diversified experience delivering large-scale projects in the hospitality, retail and workplace sectors.

Gensler recently hosted a health-and-wellness panel discussion at its Newport Beach office during which Scholz moderated a discussion between Joe Kiani, CEO of Masimo; Richard Afable, president and CEO of St. Joseph Hoag Health; and Steve De Vries, area VP at InTouch Health. The panelists shared their different perspectives on how consumer demand is impacting the industry at a local and national level. As part of that, they also addressed what the healthcare and commercial real estate industry can learn from looking at different regions, as well as the impact of potential disruptors and how the industry can continue to harness technology and science to drive better solutions.
