Shriners Hospitals for Children® is proud to share a glimpse of our new medical center’s construction progress with the Southern California community via this video news release (VNR.) The new facility will open in approximately six months – June 2017. The new medical center is part of Shriners Hospitals for Children, the world-renowned 22-location health care system which specializes in pediatric specialty care, innovative research and outstanding teaching programs for medical professionals. The new medical center is located at 909 S. Fair Oaks Ave. in Pasadena, California, between Alessandro Street and Hurlburt Avenue, adjacent to Huntington Hospital. The location will enhance the new collaboration between Shriners for Children Medical Center and Huntington Hospital. The medical center occupies 74,800 square feet on two acres and will have two ambulatory surgery rooms and six PACU suites, 20 outpatient clinic examination rooms, three fitting rooms for prosthetics and orthotics, as well as onsite radiology, child life, pharmacy and care coordination departments. The most notable difference between the current hospital and the new medical center is the absence of onsite inpatient surgical services and the enhancement of rehabilitation and pre and post-operative services. The collaboration with Huntington Hospital will allow Shriners for Children Medical Center surgeons to operate on patients using the operating rooms of Pasadena’s premier health care institution. The new center has been created to meet the rigorous demands of the rapidly-changing health care industry and the need for our specialized services in the San Gabriel Valley, the greater Los Angeles metropolitan area, Southern California, Arizona, New Mexico, Southern Nevada and the provinces of Northern Mexico.

Shady Grove Fertility, the largest fertility center in the nation with more than 40,000 babies born, just opened a brand new, state-of-the-art center and laboratory in its headquarters location, Rockville, MD. The new expansive space totals nearly 51,155 square feet across two floors, and is home to physician offices for patient consultations as well as dedicated endocrine and andrology laboratories for procedures such as intrauterine insemination (IUI), sperm preparation, and patient monitoring. The fifth floor space is home to a massive state-of-the-art embryology laboratory—the largest freestanding in vitro fertilization (IVF) lab in the United States. The 5th floor also includes a spacious ambulatory surgery center with 12 recovery bays, six embryo transfer rooms, and two operating rooms. “The expansion of our Rockville, MD center and lab represents our rapid growth in the region and in the U.S. as a leading fertility practice, and furthers our commitment to provide best in class fertility care to our patients and the community,” says Chief Executive Officer of Shady Grove Fertility, Mark Segal. The Rockville office laboratory is accredited by the Joint Commission and the College of American Pathologists (CAP) operating under the distinct leadership of nationally and internationally known Jim Graham, laboratories director, and Michael J. Tucker, BSc Comb Hons, Ph.D., FIBiol, HCLD, director of Shady Grove Fertility’s IVF and Embryology Laboratories. The embryology laboratory is equipped with the very latest technology including anti-shake tables, special ventilation, and inverted microscopes to evaluate embryo growth, development, and quality, to name a few. The highly skilled embryologists are specially trained to carefully handle patients’ sperm, eggs, and embryos and verify the identification of each specimen to ensure quality control and quality assurance, which is of utmost importance to the practice. “The expansion of our new state-of-the-art clinical facility is attributed to the remarkable advancements we’ve made in our embryology lab and treatment protocols. Because we embody a culture of continuous innovation, we are always striving to stay at the cutting-edge of reproductive science to improve outcomes for patients and help more couples conceive,” says Graham. In 2015, Shady Grove Fertility’s flagship Rockville, MD laboratory alone performed over 4,100 IVF and nearly 2,050 frozen embryo transfers (FET) treatment cycles—the highest number of IVF Program cycles ever performed at the practice in a single year. This is in addition to the 1,500 IVF cycles and nearly 700 FET cycles performed at the center’s two other state-of-the-art laboratories in Chesterbrook, PA and Towson, MD. “One of the things that our patients have come to rely on throughout our 25 years of continuous care is truly personalized care, and understanding the unique needs, preferences, and circumstances of each individual. That’s why 96 percent of our patients tell us they would recommend Shady Grove Fertility to a friend or family member. This recommendation is something upon which we place high value given the sensitive nature of infertility,” says Robert J. Stillman, M.D. of Shady Grove Fertility’s Rockville, MD location. A ribbon-cutting ceremony commemorated the grand opening of the center and laboratory earlier today to formally welcome patients and team members. John Stull, Senior Project Manager with DPR Construction—with whom Shady Grove Fertility contracted in December 2015—remarked, "I am truly impressed that the SGF team was able to flawlessly orchestrate a move as massive as what happened today. It just doesn't happen, ever, that 300 people move in one day and are open and accepting patients without skipping a beat the next. Everyone had a purpose and knew exactly what they were supposed to do. It was teamwork at its finest. I've worked with dozens of healthcare organizations during building, rebuilding, and moves and I've never seen anything quite like this before. I feel privileged to be a part of it."

Lee G.,Yonsei University | Kim J.W.,DPR Construction
Automation in Construction | Year: 2014

We analyze the impact of parallel vs. sequential design coordination strategies on coordination productivity and information sharing. Previous studies have shown how building information modeling (BIM) could improve interorganizational design coordination between architecture, structure, and mechanical, electrical, and plumbing (MEP) components of buildings (MEP coordination, for short) and thus improve the quality and efficiency of a design and construction project in terms of the reduced numbers of errors and requests for information. This paper presents a unique case where two MEP coordinators were hired for a BIM-assisted project, which was a pharmaceutical company headquarters office building in Silver Spring, Maryland. The first coordinator coordinated MEP designs concurrently with other trades, whereas the second coordinator coordinated MEP designs step-by-step in a sequential process. The results of our analysis showed that the two different coordination processes largely affect the number of clashes in the first run of clash detection, coordination meeting time and efficiency, ease in finding root causes of the clashes, and number of coordination cycles to complete the coordination. As such, the sequential coordination strategy was about three times faster than the parallel strategy in terms of coordination productivity. A further examination of these two processes from an information-sharing perspective showed that the sequential coordination process reduces the concentration of information, thus reducing the overload of a coordinator with decision-making tasks, and facilitates information sharing between heterogeneous project participants. The findings of this study have potential as a basis for future development of BIM-based MEP coordination best practices and strategies as well as providing the metrics for understanding, measuring, and predicting the performance of BIM-based MEP coordination and strategically planning the coordination process. © 2014 Elsevier B.V.

22nd Annual Conference of the International Group for Lean Construction: Understanding and Improving Project Based Production, IGLC 2014 | Year: 2014

In the past few decades, lean manufacturing principles have been adopted as standard business practices in an attempt to create a less wasteful, more productive, and increasingly sustainable workplace. In particular, companies in the construction industry have focused on this concept to improve quality, productivity, safety and general business. This experience has been variable: while many companies tout the benefits of lean construction, some companies stand out as the leaders in its application, though companies all employ the same lean principles. Research suggests those companies that are most successful implement lean business culture across all levels in the organization. This paper examines the commonalities between four books discussing lean culture and how the common principles from these books informed the cultural underpinnings of a particularly successful lean contractor, DPR Construction (DPR). Specifically, this paper explores the book The Toyota Way by Jeffery Liker, focusing on its four sections of lean management principles and the research and findings on successful business principles in the books Built to Last, Good to Great, and Great by Choice by Jim Collins. The authors compare these books and highlight how their principles support the culture at DPR, which exemplifies an effective lean business culture.
