Integrated Facility Design: Leveraging Expertise, Creativity, and Process for Outstanding Experience and Efficiency

June 2021
Nemours Children’s Hospital set out to expand cardiac services by adding a 30-bed unit and two ORs. The Integrated Facility Design (IFD) approach took a team of hospital and design professionals and patient family members through a series of engaging interactive workshops to design, experience, and test the space before it was built. Through team exercises, construction of a full-scale “cardboard city,” and testing clinical scenarios, Nemours attained significant gains in efficiency and improvements in patient and staff satisfaction. Join this webinar and hear how the IFD process was followed by smooth construction and occupancy processes that allowed the project to be accomplished within budget, with virtually no change orders, and ahead of schedule.
