Jones Lang LaSalle and Beaumont Hospitals form Partnership

To service 8.5 million sq ft healthcare facility and real estate portfolio

London, 10th January 2011 - Jones Lang LaSalle has announced the formation of an integrated services partnership with Beaumont Hospitals to create a new standard in health care real estate, facilities and equipment services delivery. Through the partnership agreement, Jones Lang LaSalle at Beaumont Hospitals in the US will provide all of Beaumont’s health care facility services including facility management, construction program management, utility operations, energy and sustainability services, property management, biomedical equipment maintenance and service management, lease administration, portfolio strategy and real estate transaction services.
Previously, these services were provided by an entity wholly owned by Beaumont called Beaumont Services Company (BSC).
The partnership is designed to deliver cost savings and operational improvements that enhance quality, service and efficiency. It will also allow Beaumont to expand its focus on its core business of patient care.
“Facility, equipment and real estate needs in the health care industry are growing in size and complexity,” said Jim Safran, president of Beaumont Services Company. “This partnership melds Jones Lang LaSalle’s service delivery and operational expertise with the skills and experience of BSC’s staff in an integrated approach that is unique in the industry.”
Philip Hall, Head of Healthcare at Jones Lang LaSalle, said: "This partnership demonstrates Jones Lang LaSalle's global capability to assist healthcare clients make more efficient use of their real estate. This has a particular resonance in the UK where the NHS needs to make £20bn of efficiency savings by 2015 and making more efficient use of the NHS estate is key to delivering those savings".
The entity will exclusively serve an 8.5-million-square-foot portfolio including three hospital campuses, 5.1 million square feet of acute care hospital space, 1,744 licensed acute care patient beds and 101 owned or leased off-campus patient care or business sites located in metro Detroit.
Ted Spicer of Jones Lang LaSalle and Jim Safran from BSC will lead service operations and implementation for the new venture. It will launch joint service delivery in the first quarter 2011.
Jones Lang LaSalle’s National Healthcare Solutions Group works with hospitals throughout the country to achieve optimised efficiency, flexibility and cost saving through programme management, facility management, hospital and medical building construction, health care finance, hospital operations, location strategy and real estate transaction management services. The firm was ranked as Modern Healthcare’s second largest development firm in 2010.
