Our Transition Planning Team Kept Us on Track
“Transitioning into the new building is a monumental undertaking, with hundreds of moving pieces and collaboration across many units and specialties,” said Wendy Bankes, senior director, Planning. “We’re fortunate to have a strong internal team and an experienced partner, Covalus—a company that specializes in complex transitions like this one—to help ensure a successful project.”
Even before we broke ground, the team was hard at work to address moving patients and families, training and orienting employees, loading the building, keeping everybody updated, continually seeking input and feedback from patients, families, and surrounding communities, and considering countless other details related to the design, construction, and relocation. And they had to do all that planning with the knowledge that it was critical that operations didn’t stop while they were moving from the current building to Location G.
