LUCILE PACKARD CHILDREN'S HOSPITAL

Treatment capacity for an internationally renowned children’s hospital

MKThink conducted a 22-month facility assessment that inventoried and classified square footage allocations by function, documented usage, and measured occupancy and utilization. The study identified underutilized spaces and areas for non-critical functions to repurpose for medical use. Informed by these findings, MKThink devised a strategy that right- sized rooms, increased occupancy and utilization, and relocated administrative functions off-site.
