Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia

Clinical Laboratory Renovation

HERA staff has been working at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia for a number of years. The most recent project, the Main 5 Clinical Lab Renovation, will reorganize and streamline the core laboratory functions to better serve the increasing demands for testing and research. By consolidating the previously disjointed microbiology labs, the hospital is able to compartmentalize the various laboratory departments and increase productivity.

In addition, HERA performed an equipment survey of all Main 5 equipment and worked with CHoP to develop an equipment plan which promotes lean workflow to simplify procedures and speed up production. The project will be completed in 8 phases and will allow all departments to remain fully functional throughout the construction period.
