New York Presbyterian Hospital Wins Award for Space, Asset Management System

CHICAGO, Il. – New York Presbyterian Hospital won the 2016 Excellence in Health Care Facility Management Award for its enterprise-wide space and asset management system. The award was presented by the American Society for Healthcare Engineering and sponsored by Trane.

The Excellence in Health Care Facility Management Award recognizes individuals or facility management departments that implement new or innovative programs or processes to optimize the physical environment and improve patient care. The team at New York Presbyterian Hospital created a system to improve the reliability of its environment of care, improve the patient experience and improve operational efficiencies.

The hospital, a 2,515-bed academic medical center that includes six campuses and 10 million square feet, merged three disconnected applications — space utilization, patient experience and regulatory asset management — into a single, integrated environment.

“The tool allows interdisciplinary groups to collaborate seamlessly,” said Joseph Ienuso, group senior vice president for facilities and real estate at New York Presbyterian Hospital. “This common collaboration platform allows for rapid adoption in a dynamic healthcare environment of regulatory changes and best practices.”

The hospital has saved approximately $3 million through the project and has seen a 30 percent decrease in the number of physical environment deficiencies.
