"In the past, hospitals focused mainly on just the physical aspect of [master planning]," says Jonathan Gyory, a principal at LWDA. "But today, if they don't focus on every other aspect of how it relates to community care, their relationships with doctors, and their off-site facilities--and look at this within the context of the accountable care system--they won't be approaching it right."
In 2012, BMC began working with LWDA on a master plan to improve quality, efficiency, patient satisfaction, and revenue.
LWDA revisited BMC's existing master plan that was developed pre-recession to see if building a new patient tower on campus was still a viable option or whether the organization could renovate in place and still meet its goals.
"Unlike many other hospitals, they did have infill sites, underutilized space, and the ability to renovate parts of the campus and move key departments to new locations, which allowed them to renovate in place and not build a new tower," says LWDA President Thomas Levi.
