Designing for the Future: The Benefits of Modernization
Join David Deis as he discusses the transformation of The Children’s Hospital of New Orleans, a 400,000 SF expansion and renovation within a 600,000 SF combined inpatient and outpatient facility. This multi-phased modernization will take approximately seven years, from master planning to completion, and will require 34 distinct phases, with minimal interim moves and no interruptions to day-to-day operations.
To achieve the goal of leveraging its existing facility and to preserve its committed presence within the historic Uptown District, The Children’s Hospital had to build a strong working partnership with a design and construction team. This session will highlight the decision to leverage the chassis of an existing healthcare facility and the logistical challenges associated with implementing that decision.
