With the goal of providing the best patient care at lowest cost, Mercy (one of the top five U.S. health systems) embarked on a 300,000 sf, 7 story hospital addition to the existing Mercy Hospital in Rogers, Arkansas. Coupled with traditional A/E Design, our architectural team is also developing and managing VDC (Virtual Design & Construction) workflows aimed at shortening the schedule, reducing cost, and optimizing turn-over. We developed Enhanced Integration (EI), an integrated workflow aimed at connecting the entire Lifecycle.

In addition to managing VDC workflows, EI also includes asset data management, targeting an IWMS (Integrated Workplace Management System) implementation. With more than 2,000 employees across multiple Mercy support departments leveraging the unified platform, the projected operational savings are staggering.

EI has evolved over three years and eight projects totaling more than $500 million in construction value. This presentation will focus on best practices for delivering complex fast-track healthcare projects and showcase various tools for increasing the process transparency and connecting the entire Project Team.

Learning objectives
