The new Virtua Voorhees hospital is both ahead of its time yet firmly anchored in the realities of healthcare delivery today--all by design. Rather than erecting a new building to house the hospital's existing processes and technologies, GE Performance Solutions helped Virtua take the opportunity to re-think every aspect of patient care--present and future--well before beginning the design process. The planning process included a variety of methods including: site visit research, photo journaling, current-state process mapping, future-state operating models, and the testing of mock rooms. The result is a 680,000 sq ft, 368-bed hospital designed specifically to transform the patient experience and ensure the best possible outcomes using next-generation technologies and processes.
