Utilizing LEAN processes and workshops, as well as extensive research and planning, UMass Memorial Medical Center opted to upgrade its existing University and Memorial Hospital campuses in order to maximize its investment and existing infrastructure. The resulting multi-phase project includes the renovation and interior enhancement of 345,000 SF of hospital space, including the addition of a new simulation center and added educational space for the UMass School of Medicine and hospital staff at the Memorial Campus.
UMass Memorial Medical Center was driven by a goal to be
“The Best Place to Give Care and The Best Place to Get Care”.
The MC2020 team deployed a LEAN-Led design. This systematic approach to healthcare-specific architectural design, focused on defining, developing, and integrating safe, efficient, waste-free operational processes, to create the most supportive, patient-focused physical environment possible.
