KJWW Engineering Consultants is pleased to be part of the team for the SSM St. Clare Health Center, recently named a 2011 Vista Award winner from the American Society for Healthcare Engineering (ASHE).

The Vista Awards are a national mark of distinction and honor recognizing the importance of teamwork in design and construction of the health care environment in three categories: new construction, renovation, and infrastructure. The St. Clare Health Center was the recipient in the new construction category for the 54-acre greenfield hospital.

“The Vista Award is unique in that it recognizes a team working together with an ultimate goal of designing and developing a healing environment," said Dana Swenson, senior vice president and chief facilities officer at UMass Memorial Health Care and chair of the 2011 Vista Awards Task Force. “By sharing a common vision and stated goals, each of these teams worked together and overcame challenges presented along the way. The teams recognized this year supported one another, but those who will benefit most from the team's hard work are the people who will use and work at the facilities.”

The Vista award winners were judged on criteria such as pre-planning, development and implementation stages; time management; creative problem-solving techniques; enhancing staff productivity; supporting the needs of the community; and maintaining facility performance during renovation.

SSM Health Care formed a collaborative project team of health, design, and construction professionals who worked to create a hospital that was safer, more comfortable, and more convenient for patients and loved ones. The hospital has 154 same-handed patient rooms and incorporates evidence-based design.

KJWW Engineering served as the mechanical, electrical, and technology engineer. HGA Architects and Engineers were the architects on the project and Alberici Constructors was the construction manager.
