Lean Design for Healthcare Professionals
Our journey into Lean Healthcare began in 2002 with a major project for the Cardiovascular Services Department at Memorial Hospital in Colorado Springs. That success was later featured in Cath Lab Digest and presented at the 2004 Institute for Healthcare Improvement conference. Since then we have assisted dozens of U.S. hospitals, either on Lean mentoring or on Lean Hospital training.
Leonardo Group Americas Principals Gerard Leone and Richard Rahn have published a series of six books on implementing Lean Principles in hospitals.
Lean Hospital Programs
Leonardo Group Americas has created a selection of Lean Design programs specifically for reaching your goal of a Lean Hospital.
Lean Hospital in the OR
Incorporating Lean efficiency into the physical hospital design of your hospital will improve patient flow, equipment flow, instrument set-up times, and waste management.
Quick Changeover in the OR
Long changeover times in the OR result in delayed treatment for patients, dissatisfaction for surgeons and staff, and overtime bills for the hospital. No one wins.
