Our Transformation team has big plans for “the big room”

11-21-2017 big room open house

Planning our exciting construction project, which includes a new hospital on West 25th Street, requires a large space for collaboration. Maybe that’s why the Center for Campus Transformation has quickly earned the nickname “the big room” – it’s a big space for a lot of big ideas.

Think of it as the project’s mission control: a place for our team and our construction partners to share space, swap ideas and plan our future. Led by Walter Jones, MetroHealth’s senior vice president of Campus Transformation, this hub will be the epicenter for MetroHealth’s Transformation, throughout the design and 4-to-5-year construction process.

Workstations throughout the big room will house everyone from construction manager Turner Construction, to owner’s representative Hammes Co., to HGA Architects and Engineers.

Jones, his team and their partners showed off the new space during an all-staff open house on Monday. About 300 employees stopped by to offer their thoughts and learn about how the Transformation team is keeping costs low without compromising quality. Visitors also got to experience some of the virtual-reality technology that will be used throughout the project. It offered a glimpse into the big changes for the hospital and surrounding neighborhood.
