One Hospital “Transplant” Helps the Whole System: Seven Recent Projects from Intermountain Healthcare

Learning Units: 1.5 Health|Safety|Welfare

Architect: HDR Architecture, Inc., Los Angeles, CA
Associate Architect: NJRA Architects, Murray, UT
Structural: Reaveley Engineers + Associates, Salt Lake City, UT
Mechanical/Plumbing: Van Boerum & Frank Associates, Salt lake City, UT
Electrical: Spectrum Engineers, Salt Lake City, UT
Landscape: ArcSitio Design, Salt lake City, UT
Civil: Great Basin Engineering, Ogden, UT

There is no more invasive or disruptive activity for a healthcare campus than an on-site, full-hospital replacement. The impacts of demolition, new construction and departmental moves on operations and the patient/visitor experience requires an intense decision-making rigor. This rigor, and the institutional prioritization it inspires, can impact other new construction projects in the system. This presentation therefore illustrates how HDR’s master planning and design for Utah Valley Hospital Replacement positively influenced the firm’s work on six other new-construction projects on five Intermountain campuses across the state of Utah.

We will trace the design opportunities and challenges over a wide geographic area, and across the full spectrum of acuities and scales—from the small, stand-alone, suburban clinic to multi-block, high-rise acute care. The presentation will focus on Intermountain’s system-wide perspective of two key initiatives: branding their identity in terms of the patient experience, and developing new standards for patient units, interventional platforms and team-based clinical modules. The result is a multi-faceted portrait of one of the fastest-growing healthcare providers in the west.

Schedule of Meeting:
4:30-5:00PM – Networking
5:00-6:30PM – Presentation

Learning Objectives:

  • Evaluate a project scope in terms of flow, disruptions, cost and image
  • Utilize strategies to help clients overcome institutional silos
  • Identify game-changing design resources among the existing facilities
  • Identify the steps to becoming a trusted client advocate
