Does integrated project delivery (IPD) really add value? This presentation will explore the results of a research study and three case studies to demonstrate the results of integrated project delivery. Owners, construction managers and designers from the case studies, and the author of the scientific study, will present findings and be available for questions and answers.

  • Benefit from lessons from recent healthcare IPD projects.
  • Procure the keys to a successful IPD project.
  • Discover the differences between an IPD project and CM@risk delivery.

Emerging Professionals Forum

Speakers: Southern Ellis, AIA, LEED AP, Associate, HKS; Tushar Gupta, AIA, Lead Designer, Principal, EYP Health.

This session aims to engage the next generation of healthcare design leaders, while equipping them to advance the healthcare built environment. Join the conversation about, and with, the next generation of professionals in the field. This forum is intended to provide a setting to spur interaction between future leaders.

  • Engage each of the generations represented in the field of healthcare design.
  • Discuss similarities and differences amongst the generations and identify barriers and opportunities for harnessing each generation within a team.
  • Identify issues relevant to developing future leaders in healthcare design.
  • Discuss how emerging design professionals can contribute to the professional dialogue in healthcare architecture, engineering and research.

Hospital to Hub… A New Lease on Life

Speakers: Janhvi Jakkal, AIA, BS, MS, Associate, Medical Planner, HKS; Kimberly Caramagno, BS, MS, Lean Certified, Project Architect, HKS.

The hospital system transformed a former hospital into a medical village hub. The hub embodies population health concepts to improve wellness, health education and nutrition, and engages a variety of visitors. Residents are attracted to the health information resource center, community activity and education center, nurse clinics, retail tech bar and telehealth systems. A new community education program encourages residents to better manage their wellness. The healthy village allows patients to truly understand and improve their health outcomes.

  • Program an outpatient facility with an aging, declining population.
  • Explore ways to preserve and enhance culture through an existing outpatient facility.
  • Integrate telehealth for a new type of health care delivery.
  • Improve wellness through community education.

Rethinking Rural Health Care Facilities as Community Engagement Portals

Speakers: Arthur Brito, EDAC, LEED AP BD+C, DGNB Auditor, Associate Principal and Miami Healthcare Practice Leader, HKS; Monish Sarkar, VP, HKS; Vicki Lewis, RN, MS, FACHE, CEO, Coffee Regional Medical Center.

Falling reimbursements and the shift away from inpatient care create a challenge for hospitals to balance business, resources and services provided. As populations migrate toward cities, rural healthcare faces a larger problem in financial sustainability, and an increase in mergers and acquisitions has added pressure on rural hospitals to look at innovative and nontraditional ways to remain viable. Learn how a more community-oriented and sustainable, rural healthcare facility is being created with a facility master plan and nontraditional solutions.

  • Recognize current population health issues at play in rural hospitals and potential realignment of services.
  • Identify the key variables used to forecast bed need and determine feasible facility strategies.
  • Explore consumer-oriented design as a means for community engagement and a resource for population health management.
  • Identify effective solutions to repurpose rural health facilities in the era of declining inpatient services and increased specialization.

The Health Facilitator

Speakers: Lindsay Todd, EDAC, VP, HKS; Craig Kolstad, AIA, NCARB, LEED BD+C, ULI, Associate Principal and Senior VP, HKS; Brian Holmes, Senior VP of Real Estate Development & Deployment, Texas Health Resources; Brett McClung, Executive VP and North Zone Operations Leader, Texas Health Resources.

What if the new paradigm for a hospital was that of a proactive health facilitator rather than the more traditional, reactive role? Inherently, this would imply a foundational shift to the programming, design and operational assumptions associated with a hospital. The Texas Health Resources campus in Frisco, TX, will serve as a case study with the objective to exploit this building project’s potential and evolve the current hospital model to more closely reflect a transition toward health, wellness and preventative care.

  • Explore the community impact potential of a health facilitator by evaluating site selection and design, place-making architecture and campus strategies, and a hospital’s reach outward.
  • Identify the responsible design impact of the health facilitator.
  • Assess the user impact opportunity of a health facilitator from the perspectives of the staff, patient and visitor.
  • Hypothesize the anticipated long-term impact of a health facilitator in a neighborhood.

Infection Prevention: Collaborations in Design and Construction

Speakers: Pamela Redden, MS, BSN, RN, EDAC, Associate Principal & SVP, HKS; Richard Rucksdashel, AIA, VP, HKS; Jayson Casallo, LVN, AC, LEED Green Associate, President/Owner, Casallo Healthcare Construction Consulting; Timothy Peglow, PE, SASHE, Associate VP, Patient Care and Prevention Facilities, MD Anderson Cancer Center.

Infection transmission is a constant concern in medical settings, posing threats to patients and staff and negatively affecting the organization’s bottom line. Projects offer opportunities to support safety and infection prevention but the complexity of design and construction can be fraught with obstacles, especially when translating design to construction documents. This presentation addresses the facility implications in planning for infection transmission prevention, recommendations for developing an infection prevention team, and insights from project leaders.

  • Discuss the programmatic implications of access to personal protective equipment.
  • Identify two areas where gaps in information affecting infection prevention can occur when design documents are translated into construction documents.
  • List at least four departments/roles that should be represented on an infection prevention team.
  • Explain two infection prevention implications of technology additions to inpatient rooms.

FGI and ACEP: New Ideas in Emergency Design

Speakers: Sheila Ruder, AIA, ACHA, LSSGB, LEED AP, EDAC, Associate Principal and Senior VP, HKS; Walt Vernon, PE, MBA, JD, LEED AP, EDAC, FASHE, CEO, Mazzetti+GBA; Virgina Pankey, AIA, EDAC, LEED AP, Senior Medical Planner and Senior Project Manager, HOK; Troy Savage, Project Manager, Mazzetti+GBA; Jeff Looney, Associate Principal, Mazzetti+GBA.

This session builds on the Facility Guidelines Institute workshop conducted during the 2016 PDC Summit. The session will apply the Principals of design thinking, coupled with deep clinical expertise, to identify pressing needs and opportunities at the intersection of planning and delivery. In this session, a “Shark Tank” format will be used to explain the Principals of design to demonstrate how the FGI uses these tools to improve Guidelines development and to test new ideas for the emergency department.

  • Identify the basic Principals of design thinking.
  • Review how FGI is evolving and how it is using design thinking and clinical expertise to improve future Guidelines content.
  • Gain exposure to new ideas for emergency services design.
  • Have fun shaping a further research agenda for the FGI by helping to pick a best topic.

Behavioral Health for the ED: A Safe Space

Speakers: Anne Cox, AIA, LEED AP BD+C, EDAC, WELL AP, Senior Medical Planner, HKS; Jennifer Cayton, AIA, NCARB, LEED AP, Manager of Design, Medxcel.

This session will gather information and testimonials from the emergency department, social workers, and facilities staff that helped to design the behavioral health section of an existing emergency department. This emergency department expansion began with the goal to create a calm and thoughtfully purposed addition to an existing emergency department. The session will include reflection on the successes and failures of the project and a discussion of product selection as well as the tools useful for behavioral health design.

  • Discuss the needs of behavioral health in the emergency department and different strategies for success.
  • Explore the Patient Safety Risk Assessment Tool.
  • Discuss successful product selections for behavioral health.
  • Compare staff testimonials regarding successes and failures of the space.
  • Provide lessons learned from recent Joint Commission changes for designing behavioral health spaces.
