Santa Clara Valley Health and
Hospital System (SCVHHS) is in the process of re-visioning its service model
and operational plan and carrying out building assessments to facilitate
improved service delivery.
With County populations expected
to continue growing and with the nation’s healthcare systems undergoing
significant changes, County and Health System leaders are actively pursuing a
vision and plans for an integrated and accessible health model that will provide
high quality care to those in need while actively promoting health and wellness
Facilities Planning is working
with consultants to help facilitate and prepare the Service Model and
Operational Plan for the HHS in conjunction with its facilities assessments, to
provide a comprehensive overview of the future delivery of health-related
services and how existing facilities must be modified to meet changing demand.
The purpose of this study is to
forecast the future trends in health services and to serve as a guide for
future decisions on space needs, locations for growth, operational
requirements, and programming for facilities within the SCVHSS
system. This assessment will consider both the facility and operational
aspects of health system capacity and requirements planning.
Additionally, this assessment will be used to identify strengths, weakness,
threats, and opportunities that will provide information on future developments
and operational needs.
