W02 - Is Functional Programming a Thing of the Past, Or the Only Real Way to Design for the Future?

The pre-design programming phase of the design process ensures that subsequent phases efficiently build on the intent of the project and guard against a flawed design. However, recent practices indicate this step is often minimized because of cost, time, or other rationalizations. Join this in-depth workshop for a lively discussion moderated by experienced facilitators to explore how to link strategy to design through solid functional programming throughout the design process. Learn about related pre-design best practices, tools, and tactics and share notes from the field with your peers. A write up of the workshop will be organized and sent to participants after the session. Hosted by Nursing Institute for Healthcare Design

W03 - The Code Interpretation Clinic

The code interpretation process of an authority having jurisdiction (AHJ) is often clouded in mystery in terms of what information is needed and in what format, the required response timeframe, and how strictly the AHJ will adhere to the code versus a “friendly” interpretation. AHJs and designers bring a wealth of experience, biases, past code experiences, and their own individual processes to each situation. This workshop and panel discussion will gather participants to understand what is required (information and format) to achieve a successful code interpretation. The goal of this workshop is to bring all the potential players together to discuss and debate why different opinions were rendered for the same request and allow attendees to explore the rationale for code decisions. Hosted by AIA-AAH

T02 - VA Medical Center New Orleans

More than a decade after Hurricane Katrina destroyed much of New Orleans’ healthcare infrastructure, the United States Department of Veterans Affairs opened a new replacement medical center in the heart of the city’s growing medical district. Designed by Studio NOVA (a joint venture between NBBJ, EDR and Rozas Ward) to serve the unique needs of America’s heroes, and the complex security, emergency preparedness and floodplain issues that come with operating in New Orleans, the new VA Medical Center creates an environment that honors Veterans and their families, respects adjacent neighborhoods and reflects the region’s culture.

Providing comprehensive care for over 2,000 Veterans per day, the 1.7 million square-foot campus includes 200 inpatient beds, 300 outpatient exam rooms, 20 intervention procedure rooms, emergency and imaging departments, rehabilitation and mental health services, patient education facilities, and a transitional living center. In addition to the clinical components, the campus includes two parking garages, a state-of the-art central energy plant, and the historic preservation of two buildings: the Pan Am office building for administrative use and the Dixie Brewery for research activities.

The overall campus is also designed to withstand the impacts of future natural disasters, with an exterior that can weather hurricane force winds, a ramp to the emergency department that doubles as a boat launch, and supplies that allow it to operate for a week without outside help.

The project is the recipient of the national “Best of the Best Award” by Engineering News Record and the Inspiration Awards from Contract magazine. It has been published by the Wall Street Journal, Bloomberg Businessweek and Healthcare Design magazine.

T03 - Ochsner Health System – Bridge to North Campus

The Ochsner Health System Bridge to North Campus Tour will include visiting three facilities.  The Primary Care and Wellness Center, designed by the joint venture of Eskew+Dumez+Ripple and Rozas Ward Architects, is a converted 89,000 square foot warehouse.  The design created four clinical pods with 97 exam rooms, laboratory, imaging, educational services and health care technology retail space.  The Michael R. Boh Center for Child Development, designed by Rozas Ward Architects, is a three-phase conversion of a two-story building that expands Ochsner’s pediatric services.  The tour will provide insights on designing spaces for children with neuro-muscular, neuro-cognitive, behavioral and communication related conditions.  The third facility on the tour is the Outpatient Imaging Center a 23,500 square foot building designed by Rozas Ward Architects.  The center houses ultrasound, mammography, MRI, CT, X-ray and EOS treatment rooms.  Relocation of this service was to improve the patient experience and allow for the expansion of other services on the south campus. 

The facilities on this tour are part of a multi-year Master Plan which developed new or renovated clinical space, converted another warehouse into an academic building and simulation lab, a specialty pharmacy and a pedestrian bridge connecting the south and north campuses over a federal highway.   Ochsner Health System is Louisiana’s largest nonprofit, academic, multispecialty healthcare delivery system.  They have been serving Louisiana residents since 1942.

T04 - Trinity Trace Community Care Center

In 2014, CommCare Corporation opened Riviere’ de Soleil, the first-of-a-kind household model of skilled nursing with a 130-bed community care residence in Mansura, LA. This culture change prototype vision initiated in 2011, continues to evolve in response to balancing the influences of regulatory, training, operational, and financial challenges, as the basis for four (4) new household model facilities in Louisiana designed by KTH Architects, Inc.

Culture Change is an iterative challenge requiring early foresight and continuous scrutiny for insight in skilled nursing and rehabilitative care. It is the Lessons Learned from the first facility that form a renewed strategic alignment of planning and design principles addressing new opportunities to enhance operational efficiency and facility performance. Key guiding principles thrive, including front doors and porches at each home, warming kitchens at the hearth, staff presence at the residence, resident beds in quiet clusters, neighborhood commons within reach, and inviting community amenities and open spaces at Trinity Trace Community Care Center in Covington, LA.

T05 - Wellness Center of Thibodaux Regional

Thibodaux Regional Medical Center’s new Wellness Center, located in Thibodaux, La., was envisioned with the primary goal of making its community healthier.  It is designed to improve the health and well-being of the bayou region through education, prevention, rehabilitation, sports, and wellness services. The center aims to create a clinical pathway that integrates wellness, where patients view their health and wellness as a collective entity.

The Wellness Center, open since October 2016, is the first of its kind in Louisiana.  Three main components comprise the 225,505-square-foot five-story building: a central mall that runs down the center of the building and serves as the main circulation corridor; a wellness area, located to one side of the mall, that includes a fitness and recreation center with three swimming pools, lockers, studios, an indoor walking and running track, and volleyball and basketball courts; and a medical center, on the opposite side of the mall, with an imaging center and rehabilitation department.  This area also includes additional medical office space to accommodate orthopedics, sports medicine, neurosciences, pain, spine, and weight management.   

Education is another central goal of the Wellness Center, with a 10,000-square-foot education center.  Located behind the reception desk, the education center contains classrooms and an auditorium while on the fifth floor, conference rooms host continuing education programs for doctors and specialists. 

The LEED-certified building was developed on a greenfield site adjacent to and owned by the hospital.  WHLC Architecture (Baton Rouge, La.) was engaged to expand the hospital campus and create a medically integrated facility that maintained a flexible layout. 

The Wellness Center has spurred a second generation of commercial and residential development around the area.  Additionally, the hospital already has plans for further expansion.  Phase Two will be constructed behind the Wellness Center on 17 acres of land.  It will include tennis courts, soccer fields, sand volleyball, pavilions, sports performance areas, and track and field areas.

T06 - University Medical Center New Orleans

Ten years after Hurricane Katrina devastated New Orleans’ healthcare infrastructure, the state of Louisiana opened an academic medical center that provides affordable community health and critical services while markedly elevating standards of patient care. Designed by NBBJ / Blitch Knevel, the 1.5 million-square-foot University Medical Center New Orleans (UMC) is located on a 37-acre site in the Mid-City neighborhood and forms the cornerstone of a new top-tier healthcare district for the region.

Given the area’s vulnerability to catastrophic flooding, the core concept for the building organization mandated by the client was that no critical hospital functions occur at grade level. All services on the ground floor are non-essential in a 100-year flood event and all mission critical components, including the Emergency Department (ED), are located at least 21 feet above base flood elevation. Also, design technology, emergency power, and material stock allow the hospital to operate after a category three hurricane for up to a week or more with no outside support.

Now operated by LCMC Health, UMC combines academics and science to provide comprehensive treatment and trauma services, as well as graduate medical education programs for future generations. Services include an ED that accommodates almost 130,000 visits per year, 448 inpatient beds, and surgical services with 22 operating rooms and 76 pre-/post-op bays. UMC has won numerous awards including the prestigious AIA/AAH Healthcare Design Award, an Honor Award by AIA New Orleans, and the Healthcare Environment Award by Contract magazine.

W04 - Concept to Completion: How Integration of Mock-Ups and VR Can Improve Your Design Process

Shrinking design schedules and the vital need to improve patient experience is changing the way interdisciplinary teams work. In this workshop, presenters will guide an interactive review and discussion of the design process, utilizing visualization tools that aid in the study and design of complex room types.Participants will be divided into teams and challenged to reimagine the ideal layout for a patient room. The teams will have the opportunity to use full-scale cardboard mock-ups and virtual reality (VR) to explore the room, study ideas, and develop design solutions. The teams will later participate in a collaborative review to share how implementing the tools of mock-ups and VR affected their design process, communication of ideas, and decision-making process. Hosted by Stantec.

W06 - Healthcare in the Urban Environment: An Interactive Workshop

This facilitated workshop will challenge attendees to brainstorm how to actively engage healthcare providers, designers, and urban leaders to collaborate on how to create healthy “livable” cities while achieving cost-saving and population health management goals. The presenters have observed that prevention is as important as curing patients in improving the health and wellness of our communities. More than ever, the responsibility for healthy choices is being placed on the individual, which raises the broader question of how we can create a built environment and partnerships to better enable places to live, work, and recreate. Through multiple rounds of brainstorming sessions, this experience will blend skill sets and expertise in healthcare design, urban design, and public health awareness. Outcomes from this session will be documented and presented after HCD Expo as an online white paper. Hosted by AMFP.
