A properly implemented new facility can drive efficiency, add revenue, and increase the capabilities and capacity of an organization. DCG brings together a modular methodology that can be scaled and adjusted to best manage the complexity of the new facility, expansion, or renovation. DCG utilizes Lean Design principles to focus on long-term operational optimization, and integrates the efforts of the AEC, clinical, and management teams to ensure collective progression to full activation and operation.

Challenge | A client was 90 days from the planned opening of a new outpatient facility. There were significant political and financial impacts associated with the opening date. The project was in disarray with no documented indication to executive leadership that it would open on time, on budget, or that patient safety wasn't at risk.
DCG Solution | DCG did a rapid assessment to determine project status within the New Facility Lifecycle. Based on the opening date, DCG worked backward using the Integrated Planning and Facility Activation modules of the methodology. DCG met with all teams both Architecture, Engineering, and Construction (AEC) and clinical and created an integrated project plan, training plan, move plan, communication plan, and budget overview, along with standardized and structured status reporting schedule.
Value | DCG provided both structure and planning to the project, in addition to leading and managing the move. During the project, the DCG team was in close communication with executive leadership, presenting options to the budget and timeline to support key decision making. DCG was engaged to execute the formal plan, and as a result opened the facility on time with zero patient safety incidents.
