    Rush University Medical Center

    This event is over! Please check the 2020 schedule.
    LAB - Labs bring together small groups for an exclusive, first-hand look into what happens behind the scenes at some of the most innovative companies, community leaders and institutions around Chicago.

    Operational Ownership of the Design, Build Process

    Rush is currently constructing a 14-floor, 806,000-square-foot hospital building near the corner of Ashland Avenue and the Eisenhower Expressway. The new hospital, scheduled to open in 2012, is the centerpiece of a $1 billion, ten-year campus redevelopment plan called the Rush Transformation, which also includes completion of a new orthopedics building, a new parking garage and central power plant, renovations of selected existing buildings and demolition of obsolete buildings. The new hospital is designed and built to conserve energy and water, reduce waste and use sustainable building materials. Rush is seeking Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) gold certification from the U.S. Green Building Council. It will be the first full-service, ?green? hospital in Chicago.

    Rush created the Office of Transformation comprised of staff that will actively work in the new hospital, including physicians, nurses, engineers, as well as operations and IT staff. This team has been leading the 10-year transformation effort starting with the master plan and moving through concept design, detail design, and construction documents. The focus of this lab is ?Why and How the owners of the end state space should be actively involved in all aspects of building a new facility.? While managing the change orders, final in-field changes can dramatically alter the intended operational flow, and hence make long term operations inefficient. The need for continual owner oversight will pay dividends throughout the operational life of the facility.
