Est. reading time: 5 mins

There’s a smell test that must pass John Murray’s muster daily. Sight and sound tests, too. Senior director of facilities at Martha’s Vineyard Hospital since its new facility opened in June 2010, Murray is much more hands-on than his counterparts at the bigger institutions on the mainland. He has to be, this being a small, […]

The rest of us can say hello to Jonathan Overacker, the director of facilities and engineering for Riverside Healthcare in Kankakee, Illinois.

John M. Gustin – Adventist Health

Est. reading time: 5 mins

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 […]

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 […]

Jill Pearsall – Texas Children’s Hospital

Est. reading time: 4 mins

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.
