Dave Keelty – University of Vermont Medical Center

It’s not just what the doctors ordered, it’s what former patients and their families advised when the University of Vermont Medical Center was about to commence with an ambitious addition six years ago. For all too often those folks—the real stakeholders in any healthcare project—seem left out of the equation when it comes to layout […]

GoHealth Urgent Care

Injuries and ailments wait for nobody, Rudy Yadao Jr. muses from his office in San Bruno, California. More than just time and money could be at stake if his employer’s urgent care centers are not built on time and operationally ready by autumn. “Got to plan for success and prepare for the worst,” he tells […]

Jon Papps – Prisma Health

Jon Papps likes to joke that he was the first person in history to bring the University of South Carolina and Clemson University—heated rivals whose football teams have divided the state for more than a century—together for a common cause. The mission: to save lives and improve medical care in one of the state’s largest […]

Robert Thompson – Anne Arundel Medical Center

It’s a disturbing but realistic analogy that Robert Thompson cites. Stringent aviation rules and regulations notwithstanding, commercial airliners crash, however infrequently. And should it be found that the company was cutting corners on maintenance, the boss had better expect repercussions. Now let’s look at hospitals, says Thompson, who’s fashioned a long and productive career as […]

Jill Pearsall – Texas Children’s Hospital

To most, the saying “giving 110 percent” is considered a positive one. For the folks at Texas Children’s Hospital, however, the idiom had taken on a slightly different meaning in the fall of 2013: The facility was consistently over capacity, and the impacts—on patients and physicians alike—were starting to take a toll. That November, leaders […]

Roark Perkins Perry Yelvington Architects

It’s an exciting, and maybe overdue, concept in modern health care—the so-called microhospital. Capable of providing emergency—even trauma—treatment while sparing the patient what’s almost certain to be a longer wait in a big-city ER, microhospitals are a significant upgrade from urgent care centers and have been springing up and operating around the clock in a […]

Engel Burman Construction

It might be one of the unintended consequences of the relaxation of marijuana laws, if not the outright legalization in some states, with New York soon likely to be among them. “With pot being legalized in so many places, the drug cartels are turning to heroin and fentanyl,” says Scott Burman, the president of the […]

Devin Hugie – CHOC Children’s Mental Health Inpatient Center

It’s about meeting the very overdue need of tending to the mental health of some of the most vulnerable children and teens in California’s Orange County. The specialized nature of such treatment being what it is, the standards of CHOC Children’s Mental Health Inpatient Center had to exceed the very stringent codes by which the […]

Marvin Smith – Penn State College of Medicine

Marvin Smith once managed large airfield maintenance and construction for the U.S. Air Force. Today, he’s focused on intricate medical complexes. Ultimately, the two endeavors aren’t all that different, the civil engineer says. Both are pressure-filled, require significant attention to detail and allow little margin for error. “I do enjoy the challenges,” says Smith, assistant […]

Sean Collins – Cedars-Sinai Medical Center

It takes a team to perform even the most minor operation, and a major one was about to get underway a couple of years ago at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center. The patient being the flagship Advanced Health Sciences Pavilion of the huge hospital. The locale being urban Los Angeles, the stakes couldn’t have been much higher […]
