Last month, the Dayton Children’s Hospital (DCH) HTS Project team led by Ley Anne Merica, Erica Aguilera Dickey and Christina Stigger, were onsite to help facilitate Stand and Deliver. Stand and Deliver is a town hall style meeting meant to inform a larger project audience about upcoming milestones, key decisions, and other pertinent information regarding the project. Prior to the big day, the HTS team works with the leadership team to prepare materials and share best practices for delivering a presentation of this style.

The DCH team was extremely impressed by the outcome of this important event. Jayne Lachey Gmeiner, MS, RN, NEA-BC, Chief Nursing Officer, sent out a follow message to all who participated thanking them for their time and passion. Recognizing the importance of such sessions she stated, “I have heard so many positive compliments about the program and our plan to update everyone on our status for the Tower planning.  For those not as close to the project, it helped create a “peace of mind” that we are dotting our I’s and crossing our T’s!  You all brought this to LIFE in a very succinct and meaningful manner!  I thank you for your Engagement, Energy, Passion and most importantly DRIVE for doing what is best for our KIDS and Parents. You are all AMAZING!  Thank you very much!”

DCH is ramping up for a very busy summer. Starting in June, they will begin the activation phase, which includes Day in the Life and Mock Move simulations. This will all lead up to their Patient Move in July. HTS would like to congratulate the DCH team for all that you have accomplished and we are looking forward to standing by your side on Day One of Operations.
