When Bon Secours Mercy Health (BSMH) wanted consistency throughout their system design standards, they decided to bring on a design team to help them think through these standards. The objectives for BSMH included reviewing the owners’ new greenfield sites, upgrades to facilities and infrastructure, and outpatient components. These components are significantly different from inpatient in terms of technological and system life expectancies, maintenance needs, and performance. In this session, see the data-driven results and lessons-learned as BSMH’s Director of Infrastructure, Jonathan Hunley, BSMH’s Molly Ironmonger, and CMTA Vice President and Principal, Kevin Mussler, showcase why BSMH desired improvements, how the design team and owners came together to execute the project, and how the operations team can use this new and improved facility and approach moving forward.
