Transforming Care for a Complex, Vulnerable Population
After completing facility assessments of more than 10 million sf, we helped prepare the state of Texas to evolve its approach to mental health facilities.
Many facilities experiencing physical condition challenges also face limitations in physical design and functionality. Allina Health engaged CannonDesign to perform facility condition assessments and a clinical functionality review of 4.9 million square feet of hospital buildings across four campuses. The facility condition assessment was a comprehensive study of architectural, mechanical, electrical, and plumbing components of Allina Health’s Mercy Campus, Unity Campus, Abbott Northwestern Campus, and United Campus. The assessments created the ability to prioritize and accurately distribute funding across the diverse portfolio. The clinical functionality review provided an unbiased objective assessment of current physical design and identified areas of opportunity to guide the Allina Health executive team in their strategic initiatives for the four metro hospital campuses.
