In 2015, MetroHealth embarked on an ambitious transformation of their campus near downtown Cleveland, OH. In Fall 2022, they will open the doors of the MetroHealth Glick Center, an 11-floor, LEED-certified hospital. This transformation is the largest self-funded county hospital project in US history. In our presentation, the MetroHealth Transformation team will describe how they justified the need for external resources to support the transition and activation of the Glick Center. They will also describe the effort to solicit the best in the industry for their project focusing on team structure, budget development, and steps taken to set expectations. MetroHealth will also highlight the opportunity to incorporate the latest in process and technology. The HTS project team will describe how we developed our team of industry experts to manage this transition process, with a shared goal to bring MetroHealth's facility to life
