Session Description

Located in a growing community and operating at 100 percent capacity, a suburban St. Louis hospital underwent a major campus expansion from 2013-2018. The expansion included a three-story, 105-bed tower constructed on top of the original two-story hospital to expand patient capacity, upgrade hospital services, and improve patient care. Come hear how the hospital remained fully occupied and operational during construction, requiring multiphase research as well as careful planning and execution to improve the patient experience and staff efficiencies. The project was completed with as little disruption as possible and was delivered under budget and ahead of schedule.
