Front Royal, Va. — Valley Health opened a new 177,000-square-foot Warren Memorial Hospital in June.
The architect for the new facility was Perkins+ Will and the contractor was Howard Shockey & Sons, Inc.
To ensure 100% operational readiness of this replacement hospital on day one, a “Transition Plan” was developed by Hammes Healthcare for 20 different departments, specialty, and primary care clinics to ensure preparedness for their first patient before moving into the new hospital and attached medical building.
Leading up to the opening of the new hospital, the team led the transition planning efforts to move the physical assets, equipment, departments, and patients from the old hospital to the new. One month before the opening, Hammes led Valley Health’s staff through a series of mock scenarios to test new operations.
