Healthcare projects—especially at hospitals—require heightened attention to project planning, communication, and execution to address the needs of facilities that are in operation 24 hours, 7 days a week.
Building Facilities for a Healthier Future
Given the ever-changing nature of medical care, technology, insurance reimbursements, and compliance requirements, healthcare facilities teams need construction partners who understand their needs and who manage projects safely, with precision and craftsmanship at the forefront.
Regency has performed over $160 million of critical and complex projects for healthcare clients such as Cleveland Clinic, University Hospitals, MetroHealth, The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, St. Vincent Charity Medical Center, and Memorial Health. From inpatient suites, hybrid operating rooms, and emergency rooms to catheterization labs, pathology labs, and pharmacy compliance upgrades, our goal on every project is to build strong relationships with our project team members to ensure we understand client needs and continuously address those nuances throughout the project.
Our team has extensive experience with phasing, ILSM/Infectious Control requirements and building protocols relative to shutdowns and tie-ins to name a few, while maintaining budget, schedule, and quality. We have completed projects using the Construction Manager at Risk, Design Builder, and General Contractor delivery methods.
Key Considerations for Healthcare Construction
Strong communication with the client and among all project team partners from design to close-out is the foundation of a successful and safe healthcare project.
The stakes are high when constructing in an occupied healthcare facility—strict adherence to Infection Control Risk Assessment (ICRA) protocols, close supervision, and special scheduling/phasing are among several strategies we use to keep the facilities and patients safe, and the clients operational.
Engaging maintenance staff during design helps us understand the system impact of the project, identify potential shutdown factors, and incorporate key building concerns into the project scope prior to the start of construction.
Working closely with the design team helps to identify specialized design requirements and long lead times early on, limiting costly scope and schedule changes.
Regency makes it a priority for our team to obtain ICRA, ASHRE, and other certifications to ensure they have the tools and knowledge they need to support our healthcare clients.
