Summary Purpose - This paper evaluates the main elements of building performance namely building function, building impact and building quality in order to promote strategic facilities management in healthcare organisation to improve core (health) business activities. Design/methodology/approach - Based on current available toolkits, a questionnaire is issued to healthcare users (staff) in a public hospital about their level of agreement in relation to these elements. Statistical analysis is conducted to regroup the elements. These regrouped elements and their inter relationships are used to develop a framework for measuring building performance in healthcare buildings. Findings - The analysis helped to clarify the understanding and agreement of users in Australian healthcare organisation with regards to building performance. Based on the survey results, 11 new elements were regrouped into three groups. These new regrouped elements will be used to develop a reliable framework for measuring performance of Australian healthcare buildings. Originality/value - Currently there is no building performance toolkit available for Australian healthcare organisation. The framework developed in this paper will help healthcare organisations with a reliable performance tool for their buildings and this will promote strategic facilities management.
