With 22 hospitals across North America, Shriners Hospitals for Children is recognized as a leading provider of specialty pediatric healthcare. The Philadelphia Shriners hospital focuses on spinal cord injuries and orthopedics and was built adjacent to Temple University Children’s Hospital. When Temple dropped its Pediatric service line, Shriners turned to Array to determine design solutions for multiple renovations and an expansion of their PICU.
Array studied alternatives for future facility growth based on Shriners’ staffing model, volume increases and patient needs. This analysis indicated that Clinics, Operating Suites and Radiology services could be right-sized to improve efficiency.
Through a close collaboration with Shriners Hospital and the Construction Manager, the team was able to expedite the design and construction schedules allowing the project to open ahead of schedule.
