Owensboro Health recently embarked on a $67.5 million Healthplex program to re-imagine their ambulatory network strategy. The program consists of three 42,000 square foot outpatient centers in three separate markets throughout western Kentucky; all designed, constructed and opened simultaneously. The buildings were designed based on a modular concept that could be easily adapted by new providers and services lines. Standardizing the facilities around common concepts, Owensboro Health was able to accelerate speed-to-market and consolidate disparate operations while realizing economies of scale. Under the Healthplex model, $5 million worth of cost savings were recognized by using Integrated Project Delivery (IPD), standardizing construction documents, realizing group buying opportunities, and optimizing resources from one building to the next.



1. Learn how standardizing design and construction can increase speed-to-market, decrease cost, and provide operational flexibility.
2. Recognize savings through efficient scheduling and leveraging purchasing scale across multiple sites.
3. Discover the benefits of using integrated delivery models to sustain relationships with familiar partners and quickly onboard new team members.
4. Discuss how a consolidated clinic model can help realize operational efficiencies and increase brand awareness in surrounding service areas.
