Victory Lakes Expansion Project

Victory Lakes Expansion      Victory Lakes Expansion Project Update

There are only 19 days left in this calendar year and even less until the holidays!  As we wind down the year, we wind up the gears and shift into activation overdrive preparing VL Expansion for the first patient on August 1, 2015.

The Victory Lakes Specialty Care Expansion…most of us drive by it everyday on I-45. Have you ever wondered what is going on behind those walls? McCarthy’s 3-week look ahead schedule has them working primarily on the interior of  floors 1, 2, 3 & 4.

     Painting walls level 1 & 2
     Ceramic tile level 1 & 2
     Sheetrock level 3 & 4; also level 2 Med/Surg area 1
     Continue installation of elevator cars #7 & #9
     Mechanical, Electrical & Plumbing (MEP) for levels 1 – 3
     Begin work on OR ceilings
Exterior Work:
     Roof level 2 & 3
     Install outside canopy ( Emergency Department)
     Ongoing site grading/lime & paving/sidewalks and I-45 deceleration lane work  

 

 Substantial Completion, or the date when ownership and keys to the building are transferred to UTMB, is a significant milestone for IS.  On May 28th, 2015, or substantial completion, IS will begin installation of the network hardware, WIFI, PCs, telephones, printers, DAS, and all other hardware and systems they are responsible for.  IS staff will also work with individual departments, Campus Police and Clinical Engineering Services to install and integrate other systems such as OBIX (fetal monitoring), Hugs & Kisses (infant protection system), EMT Radio System, Wireless Key Locks for all doors, and many others. Everything must be in place and operational by August 1, 2015, when the first patient walks through the doors.

If all that sounds like a lot, IT IS! The IS Operations Project Teams have been meeting, planning, reviewing, coordinating, approving, changing, crying (checking to see if you are reading this), disagreeing, and reporting on the project even before construction began on October 8, 2013. Working with Facilities, CES, Materials Management, Hospital Clinical Operations, Ancillary Operations, Office of Facilities Planning and Construction (OFPC), and others …everyone in IS will have a part to play in the successful opening of the Victory Lakes Expansion Center. 

More updates to come.  I look forward to any questions or feedback!

Clinical Services Wing Project

The Clinical Services Wing is getting ready to shift into “Activation” overdrive! A few short weeks ago, initial planning for departmental moves began and this week marks a second series of meetings with departments to finalize move in dates.  IS Operations project teams are working with project teams from Facilities, CMCI (project activation contractor), Hospital Operations and all departments who will move into the building.

Check out the links below for the tentative timeline (dates agreed to but not yet finalized as of 12/11/14)  for department moves, along with the milestone schedule of project dates to be aware of :
