Case Studies Healthcare

Dan Dowiak – Pinnacle Treatment Centers Inc.

It’s a step that can be terrifying, yet can—once taken—lead one down a life-saving path. Recovery from substance-use disorders and addiction requires that first fateful action—even if the road to sobriety and health is never the same for any two people travelling it. What remains constant for all of them, however, is the need for […]

Vance Vinson – Miami Valley Hospital

It would take more than 86 football fields—at 57,600 square feet each—to cover the 5 million square feet of space Vance Vinson and his team are responsible for at Miami Valley Hospital in Dayton, Ohio. And yet, the organization’s director of facilities believes that even the smallest changes can make a major impact—particularly when it […]

Angelo Cox – Inland Empire Health Plan (IEHP)

You may have been there once or twice. It’s one of those company-sponsored training or professional development events. During a break, you zip back over to your workspace to touch base with your colleagues and check in on emails, memos and calls. While this may only take a few minutes, as a result, you’re sidetracking […]

Bob Cowan – Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center

Air handling systems and drug production facilities that cycle a building’s air six to 60 times an hour with 100 percent outside air. A data center with a power usage effectiveness (PUE) ratio of 1.05. A computerized building automation system controlling 10,000 pieces of equipment and providing instant alerts if problems arise. These are examples […]

Brent Rutherford – Texas Health – Frisco

When it opens in December, standing eight stories above the grassy plains in Frisco, the new Texas Health Resources hospital will offer many tangible benefits to the community. There will be 73 new beds for patient care, with the potential for up to 230 beds. There will also be emergency medical services, a neonatal intensive care […]

Joel Kalmin – Legacy Community Health Services

Joel Kalmin of Legacy Community Health Services does not wear a stethoscope or take care of patients, but for the last 10 years as director of facilities design, he has worked with Legacy staff to build clinics that reflect and invigorate the communities they serve. As the largest nonprofit Federally Qualified Health Care Center, or […]

Wes Pooler – Southern Maine Health Care

Like many states, Maine has seen a spike in demand for behavioral health resources over the past decade. The problem is especially pronounced in rural and low-income areas, where extenuating factors—such as the state’s growing opioid crisis—are pushing these services to the brink. It’s an issue Wes Pooler knows all too well. During his tenure […]

Chris O’Higgins – Jefferson Healthcare

When Chris O’Higgins showed up for the grand opening of Jefferson Healthcare’s new dental clinic on June 18, he expected to see the usual suspects: team members, company executives, a few contractors, maybe a local reporter or two. Instead, nearly 80 people—including many local residents—turned out to celebrate the new facility, the first in Washington […]

Chris Brey – Cytokinetics

Living in a developing country like the Dominican Republic will change you, Chris Brey says. He’ll never forget how people got by with so little, and how much waste he saw being created back in the United States. Two years in the Peace Corps left a lasting impression on him, making him want to have […]

John M. Gustin – Adventist Health

It has the potential to cut costs and accelerate the timeline, but the design/build process is not necessarily the obvious choice in hospital construction. For many in this detail-oriented and highly regulated industry, the risk seems too high to entrust one contractor to directly manage the design team, without the usual checks and balances of […]
