How managers can move their organization from reactive emergencies to planned activities
Angela Testa, senior vice president of operations at American Campus Communities, strengthens operations without compromising a healthy work environment
Inova Fairfax Hospital in Falls Church, Va., has completed work on two projects for the Inova Fairfax Medical Campus expansion: the renovation of the 225,000-square-foot, 11-story North Tower Building; and the 660,000-square-foot replacement tower for Inova Women’s Hospital and Inova Children’s Hospital.
The North Tower Building project involved renovation of the hospital’s patient tower that provides intensive care, acute care and general care patient suites. The HVAC and plumbing systems were updated, and a new electrical distribution system as well as all related distribution utilities were installed.
The hospital is pursuing LEED Silver certification for the Women’s and Children’s hospitals replacement tower. Sustainability features include variable-speed technologies, heat recovery, unoccupied reset strategies, and green roofs.
Semi-private patient rooms in the tower were converted to all private rooms and the aging infrastructure has been replaced with advanced systems. The facility consists of a patient tower, which adds 310 beds, 33 labor and delivery suites, and specialty operating rooms to the medical campus.
