When a single project needs to satisfy a diverse set of stakeholder desires and needs, how does an integrated design and construction team cull, develop and coordinate diverse voices? Can stakeholder-driven design processes instigate change and cultivate a culture that sustains community health? A team of more than 30 firms tested a new model of integrated design processes to address these questions in the development of Piedmont Atlanta Hospital’s building expansion. This panel will catalogue specific processes, techniques and technologies deployed to integrate stakeholders and key industry leaders, and candidly discuss key lessons as they walk through the process.

This session will share the process, findings and recommendations of the post-occupancy evaluation (POE) of the University Medical Center of Princeton at Plainsboro. The POE focuses on how decentralized nurses’ stations impact nurses’ communication and teamwork, patient perceived quality of care and patient satisfaction. It involves a unique mixed-methods approach. The research consisted of five steps: (1) on-site behavioral mapping; (2) a self-report questionnaire of nurses’ perceptions of the work environment and teamwork; (3) focus group interviews; (4) a pre- and post-move analysis of Press Ganey data; (5) space syntax analysis.
Speakers: Bernita Beikmann AIA, EDAC, LSSBB, HKS: Sheryl Valentine RN, BSN, MBB, MBA, MBOE, Lean Sigma Six Leader, Lean Six Sigma Deployment Director, Akron Children’s Hospital: Will Lichtig, VP Business & Process Development, The Boldt Company.
Akron Children’s Hospital’s Kay Jewelers Pavilion was planned, designed and constructed using lean design and construction principles. One of the core concepts of lean thinking is to run small experiments as a guide toward perfection. How can this concept be applied to designing operations and the physical space that will house them? Akron Children’s Hospital, and its design and construction partners, have developed a “blueprint for healthcare design” that has integrated mock-ups from early concept through construction, assuring that expectations are understood and met. Whether renovating existing space or designing a new building, these concepts allow you to keep the voice of the customer central to the project and be confident that those expectations will be met.
Speakers: Janhvi Jakkal AIA, LEED AP BD+C, HKS: Kimberly Caramagno Registered Architect, LEEP AP, Lean Six Sigma, HKS: Don Damron MPT, vice president of Ambulatory Services, OSF Saint Elizabeth Medical Center, OSF Center for Health – Streator: Ken Beutke MHA, MS, President, OSF Saint Elizabeth Medical Center.
OSF HealthCare vowed to support its residents by transforming a former hospital into a medical village hub in Streator, Illinois. Preserving the existing building enhances the city’s culture, while the design of the hub creates a place to improve wellness, education and nutrition. Streator residents will be attracted to the health information resource center, telemedicine, nurse clinics, retail tech bar and telehealth systems, providing an enhanced connection to the OSF HealthCare network. A new community education program encourages residents to better manage their wellness. The healthy village is a hub for patients to truly understand and improve their health and healthcare outcomes.
Speakers: Kate Renner AIA, EDAC, Lean-Six Sigma CE, LEED AP BD+C, HKS: Lindsay Todd EDAC, HKS: Rebecca Soja AIA Associate, HKS: Sheryl Valentine RN, BSN, MBB, MBA, MBOE, Lean Sigma Six Leader, Akron Children’s Hospital.
This presentation stresses that achieving meaningful and measurable outcomes to improve processes, built environments and user experiences is only possible if informed intentions are set from the start. The “intent to impact approach” is a sequence for integrating research and metrics throughout the design process, from establishing goals and implementing design solutions, to evaluating the design post-occupancy. Akron Children’s Hospital Kay Jewelers Pavilion, a 368,000-square-foot critical care tower that opened in May 2015, will serve as a case study for this method.
Speakers: Erin Peavey Hsieh AIA, LEED AP BD+C, EDAC, Design Researcher, Academy of Architecture for Health Foundation: Alberto Salvatore AIA, NCARB, EDAC, Healthcare Practice Leader, Perkins + Will: Fernanda Pires EDAC, Green Belt Certified, Senior Healthcare Planner, Array Architects: Julie Kent EDAC, Director, Trinity Health.
In a time of rapid change, healthcare organizations are focused on optimizing decision making to reduce per-capita cost and accelerate time to market, while promoting health and improving care quality and experience. Design professionals are looking to lean design to accomplish these goals. Of equal importance is the application of evidence based design (EBD). Taken together, EBD and lean are mutually supportive processes. This interactive roundtable will explore a systems approach for these processes. The panel will include owner, architect, planner and researcher, and include a mock interview to uncover key issues, with the audience invited to participate and evaluate as key stakeholders.
