The Pediatric Cardiac Catheterization Lab at the University of Chicago Comer Children’s Hospital boasts sophisticated Toshiba equipment with real-time radiation dose tracking within a state-of-the-art multidisciplinary lab space.
PFB worked with Leopardo Construction to complete fast track design and construction in an unprecedented 5 ½ months. The project design utilized a 5-day Kaizen process to track the flow of physicians, clinicians, patients and supplies through the various procedures that will take place in the room. The Kaizen process allowed the design team to complete full construction documents in a 6-week timeframe.
The University was able to implement Lean practices for each part of the patient experience analyzing check-in, pre-op, procedure, post-op, and check-out for a variety of procedures.
