A Hospital’s main campus is losing market share to changes in population trends moving geographically further away. The experience of healthcare is rapidly evolving and the changes in health insurance are forcing hospitals to improve the patient experience. Patients, families, and payers are all seeking improved safety, outcomes, and satisfaction with their healthcare provider. This Hospital understands that to be competitive a new campus is needed closer to the population with updated amenities.
The challenge of building a new facility has further implications than just the furniture aspect. Many different ecosystems of space exist within the new facility from patient rooms, administrative offices to waiting rooms and how to select a vendor for each can be daunting and complicated. Purchasing department understands they need to streamline the furniture for the new building by consolidating vendors to work directly with the general contractor to plan delivery and installation very precisely to fit into the overall schedule of the new facility.
Having multiple furniture vendors makes for a slow and complicated delivery and installation process.
We knew the planning of the space was imperative for the hospital to reach its goals. From the exploratory to design phase, we help shape the space to reach their goals. We knew the furniture must have a consistent design feel from the front door to the patient rooms to improve the patient experience. High-quality value-driven products were specified for all spaces to drive long-term return on investment. We also knew that if the hospital went to bid they would receive inferior product substitutes making a comparison very difficult and wasting a lot of peoples time including their own. The manufacturer was willing to offer discounts for volume orders. A one-stop shop approach was presented to keep construction on-process and make maintaining of the furniture easy as there was no question on who to call.
