Patient Care and Comfort Preserved during Johns Hopkins Hospital Relocation

October 16, 2019

Johns Hopkins’ medical facility in Baltimore expanded its campus with a 148 million square metre tower – one of the largest hospital development projects in U.S. history. Moving 60 departments and 1,500 staff members, along with patients and equipment, into the facility required meticulous planning and precise implementation. The project had to be choreographed to the minute to minimise patient and healthcare worker disruption.


  • No disruption of patient care
  • Minimal inconvenience to staff
  • No interruption of hospital’s day-to-day materials and equipment distribution


  • Collaborate with hospital team to prepare detailed timing and routing work plan
  • Move as much material and equipment as possible through hospital’s tunnel system
  • Coordinate storage, delivery and installation of new equipment ordered for the facility


  • Relocation completed ahead of schedule and within budget
  • No performance deficiencies reported 
  • Operating Rooms and labs up and running same day of move
