Abstract: What role will FM play in the future of health care sector of Western economies of the Industrial World? The Health care sector of Western economies encompasses two main categories: (1) Health care aimed at people that wish to maintain their health and (2) Health care for patients that have an illness. To date, these two domains have been regarded as separate domains in the Western societies. Today there is an intense discussion how the society should support the first category because the burden of the society becomes more significant in the second category. This paper highlights the imminent problem of the Western health care sector and its relationship to FM. In addition, upcoming needs of cutting costs and achieving efficiency goals give reason to redesign and conceptualise the core business activities of the two categories.
