Clinically Integrated Facilities Track
As healthcare priorities and patient needs continue to evolve rapidly, there is increasing pressure to ensure existing healthcare infrastructure can meet these new priorities and needs. Developing clinically integrated facilities can be key to meeting clinician and patient needs. In this track, we will explore how to future-proof facilities, navigate space planning amid shifting factors, and strategies to plan for increased connectivity in hospital facilities.
OR Renovation Challenges
Wednesday, March 16, 2022 | 3:00 PM - 4:00 PM
Moderator: Michael Gerhardt
Gain an understanding of the complexities and challenges involved in a phased renovation that included bringing 30 ORs online with the most advanced technology all while maintaining current workflow. Panelists from Inova Health Systems, Wilmot Sanz Architects, and SM&W will walk attendees through a recent project case study. In 2017, Inova Fairfax embarked on an ambitious plan to renovate their existing Surgery Platform. The project consisted of the phased renovation of 28 operations rooms, 2 Cystoscopy rooms which included a satellite pharmacy, equipment storage, support/space rooms, sterile core, and scrub section. At the core of this project was a strict focus on defining project goals to improve deficiencies from decades of incremental growth, maintaining original design goals and concepts throughout the phased implementation, all while addressing the dynamic and changing environment of surgical services and healthcare technology.
- Understand the complexity involved in a phased renovation and the players involved in the project that kept it on track and on budget.
- Identify key innovations used such as modular OR stainless-steel wall paneling, pre-engineered OR ceiling systems, OR audiovisual integration systems, hybrid OR imaging modalities, robotics-ready design.
- Differentiate Executive level approval for the equipment schedule, and account stakeholder input.
- Outline needs for unique roles required on a team during a complex phased renovation project.
