Blue Cottage Knowledge Paper – Strategic Lean Services

by on August 11, 2016

Just outside of downtown Corner Brook, Newfoundland, Western Health is breaking new ground by taking a Lean-led approach to pre-design and conceptual design planning for the New Western Memorial Regional Hospital (NWMRH). Using the “Big Room” framework as the basis for the planning effort, Western Health embarked on a state-of-the-art approach to hospital facility planning that maximizes evidence based-design, opportunities for team interaction and collaboration, user buy-in and engagement and ownership, thought generation and innovation. With an eye on developing a healthcare system that functions as a whole, Western Health is striving to develop efficient, effective, and value driven solutions that aim towards a positively enhanced experience for the patients it serves.
