Overview

Prior to beginning design work on this 50,000-square-foot surgery renovation and expansion master plan, the PRMC / HGA team employed a variety of Lean tools to identify key process-improvement opportunities in the current state. The focus included inventory management, standardization of anesthesia care, improvements in room turnover, and maximizing on-time case starts to improve throughput and patient satisfaction.

The design team developed seven alternative "extreme scheme" concepts. Each of these design alternatives explored a different approach to meeting the project objectives. The best ideas of each were brought forward into the development of a "hybrid" solution.
