Geneva General Hospital Addition & Renovations | Finger Lakes Health Geneva, New York

Finger Lakes Health is a multi-facility regional healthcare provider in the Finger Lakes region of upstate New York. Geneva General Hospital is the system's flagship facility that has grown steadily over the years with additions occuring post World War II and up to the turn of the 21st Century.

The system embarked on a modernization program centered on ancillary services with a focus on enhanced patient experience and instituting best practices and state-of-the-art facilities. Not satisfied with previous project design that included a Certificate of Need approval, the system hired BSA LifeStructures to re-plan and redesign the project.

The planning and design services resulted in an approved design that addressed: enhanced patient experience, consolidated patient care, lean design for ancillary services, future growth opportunities, evidence-based design, and an integrated planning team of facility planners, operational planners, engineers and technology/ equipment planners.

The $43 million project is in construction and construction document stages on a Lean Delivery scheduled to be completed August 2013.

Lean design was used to address minimizing travel distances in acute care/intensive care units and vertical stacking of the surgery department. Fourteen evidence-based design metrics were established for the project as well.
