Lean Facility Design
This engaging seminar shows participants how using lean design principles enables health care organizations to create and redesign better buildings and spaces, improve quality and safety, reduce staff burden, and increase patient and staff satisfaction.
Participants receive a tour and analysis of lean facility design at Virginia Mason, and they leave with an understanding of how lean methods help health care leaders reduce waste and exceed staff and patient expectations.
