Project One Cumming’s work with BayCare Health Systems included the development of Standard Operating Procedures (SOP) for all of the regional BayCare facilities in Florida. To create the SOP, Project One Cumming standardized processes for all facilities, identified opportunities within current processes to potentially streamline communications, incorporated best practices, coordinated consolidating services (i.e. standard service agreements), and identified areas of operational efficiencies. Our team worked hard to assist with the creation of a systemwide process and procedure for the Real Estate, Facilities, Construction, and Purchasing departments. We also created process mapping for existing major processes, made recommendations for streamlining, developed benchmarks and targets for the future, implemented a leveraged purchasing strategy, and evaluated in-source and outsource opportunities. During our engagement, standards for project management, a common regional maintenance team, and master contract agreements were created for BayCare’s future use.

Service(s): Project Management Location: Aurora, CO Division: Project One Cumming
Project One Cumming provided project management services for this University of Colorado Hospital project, which included the addition of extra inpatient beds, the expansion of the emergency department as well as the diagnostic and treatment areas, and the construction of two new parking structures (one for staff and one for outpatients), as well as all associated building and site infrastructure.

This was accomplished through the partial addition of a fourth floor and an expansion at the north end of the existing three-story building. In addition to the new space, 14,100 square feet of existing space was renovated and reconfigured to improve operational efficiency.
