, Licensed Clinical Social Worker
This two-part presentation is designed to demonstrate the material benefits of using the new concept of Generative Space to dramatically improve the effectiveness of a full range of organizational outcomes with no associated improvements to the physical environment, and – consequently – no capital expense. The Texas Center for Infectious Disease (TCID) is the only freestanding TB hospital in America. The building opened in 2011 and has a 75-bed capacity. It is a program of the Texas State Department of Health. Average length of stay varies from 6 months to 2 years. Success is measured not only eliminating the disease from the patient, but also in rehabilitating this individual for re-entry into society. Part One will be presented by the Hospital Administrator. Jessica Gutierrez-Rodriguez has been a Generative Space practitioner for the past six years. During this period, Jessica has experimented with implementing numerous initiatives to increase the experience of ‘generativity’ for the hospital staff, patients, families, and community. In this presentation, Jessica will highlight several of these initiatives and provide evidence of their benefits to the organization. Part Two will be presented by three TCID Administrative Executives. Each one of these executives will, similarly, draw upon their work at TCID as a model to demonstrate how their uniquely collaborative approach generative care has enabled an evolution away from paternalistic practices. Each executive will provide evidence of the benefits to TCID that their initiatives have created. Attendance in Part One is a pre-requisite for participation in Part Two.
