The challenge

Hospital Sisters Health System (HSHS) needed a new campus with a patient-centered environment that incorporated the latest in hospital design and state-of-the-art technology for their new St. Elizabeth’s Hospital campus. The project included building a new hospital with 144 private patient rooms, emergency department, operating rooms, intensive care unit, and inpatient rehabilitation facilities. Additionally, an adjacent ambulatory care center offered outpatient services, such as lab, imaging, and therapy, along with medical office space for over 100 physicians. The challenge was to seamlessly integrate these elements to create a cohesive and patient-first plan that prioritized the well-being and comfort of the patients.

Challenge met

Through a patient-first plan that prioritized collaboration, innovative technology, and community engagement, Alberici successfully brought to life the new St. Elizabeth’s Hospital campus, creating a patient-centered environment that embodies the highest standards of healthcare delivery.

To improve efficiency and streamline the construction process, Alberici implemented prefabrication techniques for all patient bathrooms. By assembling the bathrooms in a structure adjacent to the site, the workflow became more efficient, ensuring a safe and controlled working environment for the trades.

Embracing collaboration and innovative technology, the Alberici team utilized 4D modeling. Combining Building Information Modeling (BIM) with the project schedule, this collaborative tool facilitated planning and sequencing activities among various trades, ensuring seamless coordination throughout the project.

In alignment with St. Elizabeth’s Hospital’s vision of community involvement, Alberici engaged a local workforce, empowering them to perform more than 75 percent of the total work hours. By also collaborating with local subcontractors and partnering with a local firm for project management, Alberici demonstrated a commitment to serving the community it builds for, fostering a sense of ownership and pride in the project.
