Session Description

One year after the opening of Oregon Health & Science University’s Center for Health & Healing 2, a 14-story ambulatory tower, the project team returns to share data, outcomes, and lessons learned from fully integrating the outpatient perioperative and procedural services in a three-level multispecialty suite, comprised of 14 procedural rooms and 10 ORs. At the 2019 Healthcare Design Expo & Conference, they shared their innovative approach to co-locating these services. Now they will share surprising new findings demonstrating how surgical volumes have increased by 20 percent and how staff have learned to operate in an integrated way, providing long-term value for the university, staff, and patients.
