“In order to continue serving our patients with the most innovative technologies and modern facilities, it was imperative that we select a partner capable of delivering the types of facilities our patients have become accustomed to expect from Geisinger,” said Bob Markowski, Vice President of Facilities Management for Geisinger. “In Stantec, we are confident we’ve selected a partner with a shared vision for excellence that can provide our patients topnotch facilities throughout Geisinger’s service area.”
As one of the nation’s largest health services organizations, Geisinger serves more than three million residents across 45 counties in central, south-central and northeast Pennsylvania and southern New Jersey. The physician-led system is comprised of approximately 30,000 employees, 13 hospital campuses, two research centers and a 583,000-member health plan.
“By leveraging our longstanding client knowledge, coupled with extensive healthcare industry experience, we will establish a plan that will enable Geisinger to continue delivering optimized care for decades to come,” said Tim Cowan, Principal with Stantec. “Our methodology centers on developing a master plan that will foster future facility investments and allocations through a dynamic, reactionary and flexible approach.”
Stantec will balance shifting population demographics, regional healthcare resources and anticipated demands on outpatient primary and specialty services with completed regional and campus-specific master plans for a holistic approach. This work will ultimately fill gaps, unify solutions and apply an overlay of LEAN initiatives to evolve existing campus plans into a true system strategy. The resulting plan will also refine Geisinger’s facility design standards to create a familiar and welcoming environment for patients across the system regardless of location.
In partnership with Geisinger, Stantec will help ensure facilities decisions are made using carefully considered prioritization criteria that blend established strategic goals and business plans with available resources and sustainable building strategies.
The Stantec team has also supported health systems such as the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, Hamad Medical Corporation, RWJBarnabas Health, the University of California San Francisco, Medical Center, and the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center.
