The HTS team at the new Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital at Stanford recently conducted a walk-through of the brand-new, 521,000 square foot facility that is set to begin a phased opening later this year.  With 149 new private patient rooms, the facility is aiming to achieve better healing outcomes not only through advanced technology but also through a family-centered design.

Project Director, Lynn Aguilera and Project Coordinator, Melissa Johnston are preparing for post building turnover activities including Building Fit-Up, New Facility Orientation, Day in the Life, Licensing, and the patient move. The facility will host its first interdisciplinary Day in the Life testing event in early fall, with the ultimate goals of increasing staff confidence, validating new and different workflows and paths of travel, and ensuring equipment and systems are functional in their new space.

“Having been involved in this project for since 2012, HTS has really become a part of the LPCH Packard 2.0 project team.  It will be rewarding to see everyone’s hard work and efforts come to light in the latter part of the year, and I am humbled to be a part of it. The facility is remarkable and it will benefit the surrounding community immensely,”  says Lynn.
