The University of Vermont Medical Center’s Robert E. and Holly D. Building E4H designed was highlighted by Healthcare Design Magazine! Read the full article here.
This project has been part of E4H’s master plan of the UVM campus. We are thrilled to have been part of the planning and implementation of such a world class healthcare facility. The new 162,000SF inpatient bed replacement project will have 128 private rooms with natural light and ample space for supporting family members.
A full renovation of the 4th Floor of Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center created a space for the new Epigenetics Program, where scientists and clinicians can engage in scientific discovery, translational cancer research and drug development. The aim is to facilitate faster discovery of breakthrough therapies by bringing scientific research closer to the point of care.
The renovations of this world-renowned medical center were designed to propel its cutting-edge research. E4H Architecture’s New York office led this multi-year phased project, which incorporated our Smart Facility Design principles to best support current evidence-based clinical practices, for patients, clinicians, and staff alike.
The next phase in development will renovate the building’s walkways and existing laboratories to provide more space to accommodate contemporary models of interdisciplinary care teams. The offices from the 2nd through 10th floors are being redesigned and converted into interactive areas for collaboration, and conference rooms will be upgraded to include state-of-the-art communications technologies.
In May, Vice President Joe Biden visited the Epigenetic Center at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York City as part of his “moonshot” initiative to cure cancer. Over the last several months the Vice President has met with hundreds of top cancer physicians, researchers, and funders to show the federal government’s commitment to increasing public and private resources in the fight against cancer. The Vice President has also called on the medical research community to share data and information in order to accelerate our understanding of the disease, its causes, and options for a cure.
Forbes recently published a report on how technology is revolutionizing the healthcare industry. It looks at three categories: Consumers and technology, Funding and Finance and Active Lifestyles.
The report references a StartUp Health Insights report that stated digital heath companies received a record $1.8 billion dollars in funding in the first quarter of 2016 – That is a 450% increase over the first quarter of 2011.
With increasing availability of new smart tools (fitbits, smart refrigerators, etc.) and new digital platforms to make healthcare more available (Doctor on Demand, GetHeal, etc.), we are excited to see how technology will continue to transform the health landscape.
