The session will present information detailing the use of pre and post occupancy evaluations in the utilization and effectiveness of space. With the pressure and challenges in healthcare, these evaluations measure results of the major investments made for a facility. One main award-winning academic trauma center will be highlighted. The session will present from a clinical, architectural, and facilities perspective. One of the goals in the post occupancy evaluation will be the performance of the built environment, which will be shared through lessons learned, including: 1. The use of virtual reality both in design and education of staff and medical students prior to occupancy. 2. The outcomes of creating a behavioral health module in the ED 3. The effects of variations made to processes and space due to the COVID pandemic.
