Lean development for Florida Wesley Chapel Hospital

WesleyChapelfrontextdn1

Lean development is credited in another hospital design.  This one is Florida’s Wesley Chapel.

“The team relied on research and lean principles to address design of the patient rooms, patient units, emergency department, clinical laboratory, surgery, and sterile processing, with special attention paid to work flow, adjacencies, optimization of staff time, and functional tasks. Throughout the facility, large windows offer natural light and views, while multiple gardens provide spaces for family, patient, and staff respite.

The greenfield site itself posed particular challenges since one-third was deeded wetlands. Florida’s wetlands preservation laws required multiple reviews with many government agencies. HuntonBrady worked with the civil engineer to create a three-phase site plan to demonstrate how the hospital could grow and make best use of the site, while minimizing impact on current operations. For this reason, departments most likely to expand are on the first level and have exterior walls.”
