Communication with specific department leadership/staff regarding construction schedule
Facility name: Methodist Hospital
Location: San Antonio, TX
Project classification: Hospital – Renovation
Project type: Acute Care
Project number: 3938500016
Lesson Learned number: 38
Lesson Learned/Best Practice
There was a 1 week delay to construction activities during the first week because the ED department was not ready to vacate some rooms. This will be avoided in the future by integrating specific department staff in schedule conversations further in advance.
Suggested Actions for Future Projects
Specific departments should be contacted directly to coordinate construction activities after coordinating with the DPO or construction manager of the facility. Ensure regular communication with department leadership as part of construction updates.
