PennFIRST: Building for the Future of Healthcare

Summary

Spanning 1.5 million square feet and 17 stories on an ultra-compact site, the new Penn Medicine Patient Pavilion is considered one of the largest, most innovative healthcare developments on the East Coast, and what many in the industry are referring to as the new standard for modern health care delivery.  Behind this remarkable project is a truly integrated team of designers, healthcare specialists, engineers, and builders known as “PennFIRST.” Using integrated project delivery (IPD) strategy, this all-star team works collaboratively to develop solutions to common complex urban planning, design, operational and construction challenges before and as they arise. Designing from the patient and caregiver’s perspective, as well as the urban design perspective, PennFIRST is creating a flexible space tailor-made for the people who will occupy it, and adaptable to the ever-changing healthcare environment.

Join us as we explore the practical, day-to-day and logistical implications of using IPD to develop a large, highly integrated urban health complex, and gain insight into the benefits of involving clinical staff in the planning and design process. See how this unique project is shaping the way we view healthcare.

The Program will:
  • Examine the practical, day-to-day and logistical implications of using IPD to develop a large, highly integrated urban health complex
  • Delve into thought process behind involving clinical staff in the planning and design phase, and what influence it is expected to have on functionality and overall patient experience
  • Investigate the differences in the structure of the contracts with regard to responsibility, risk and profit
  • Offer insight into the expectation of this model being used more regularly in future developments and its potential to carry over into other markets
