Facility Guidelines Institute

The Facility Guidelines Institute (FGI) is a nonprofit organization that was established in 1998 to provide leadership and continuity to the development and publication of the Guidelines for Design and Construction of Health Care Facilities. FGI functions as a contractual, fundraising, and coordinating entity for the quad-annual Guidelines revision process, supporting the work of the independent Health Guidelines Revision Committee in its goal to update and improve the content of the Guidelines to encourage its adoption and use. FGI uses revenue from sales of the Guidelines document to support the revision process and to fund research that can inform the Guidelines development process. For more information, visit the FGI website at www.fgiguidelines.org.
