Each year, the American Society for HEALTHCARE Engineering (ASHE) of the American Hospital Association presents the Vista Awards to teams who develop safe, quality healthcare environments, demonstrate effective and efficient communication, and on data-based decision-making processes rely.

The 2022 winners are Intermountain Health Utah Valley Hospital in Provo, UT; Vanderbilt University INFIRMARY in Nashville, TN; and Providence Regional INFIRMARY Everett in Everett, WA.

New Construction: Intermountain Health Utah Valley Hospital, Provo, UT

Utah Valley Hospital (UVH) is a Level II Trauma Center located in the heart of Utah County. The UVH Campus Replacement & Expansion was an innovative, major multiphase campus construction project that ultimately replaced a majority of the campus’ aging building space and transformed the campus identity. Seventeen construction document packages were issued in a fast-track schedule to overcome phasing challenges, minimize disruption of ongoing operations and interconnect new and existing facilities seamlessly. In the final end, the project came in on time and under budget.

Renovation: Vanderbilt University INFIRMARY, Nashville, TN

The Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt University INFIRMARY (VUMC) is middle Tennessee’s only freestanding children’s hospital and the region’s only comprehensive, nonprofit pediatric doctor. VUMC wished to advance the size and scope of the hospital’s pediatric healthcare programs to meet up the community’s needs. The full total result is really a 250, 000-square-foot vertical renovation and expansion of the Children’s Hospital. This project was completed under budget with zero interruptions to hospital operations on the 48 months of construction.

Infrastructure: Providence Regional Medical Center-Everett, Everett, WA

At Providence Regional Medical Center-Everett’s (PRMCE) Colby campus, a worldwide design firm, electrical contractor and the PRMCE facilities construction and department project manager worked hand-in-hand to upgrade the A-wing switchboard. The switchboard was installed in the 1960s and situated in a little, one-entrance room. Replacing the switchboard within an electrical room with limited space while keeping the charged power flowing to critical, life-saving equipment through the entire hospital was a tall order, but this multidisciplinary team achieved it.

The Vista Awards are presented by ASHE. These specific awards recognize significant collaboration in creating optimal wellbeing care environments.
