Come Together: Managing Risk and Improving Health Outcomes in Cleveland
Walter Jones, AIA, LEED, EDAC, Senior Vice President, Campus Transformation, The MetroHealth System
Penrose Wolf, Director of Construction, Cleveland Clinic

Join leaders from the Cleveland Clinic and The MetroHealth System in this interactive roundtable to discuss how team-based project delivery will be the necessary method to navigate the risks and challenges of healthcare design. Learn how owners, architects, engineers, construction trades, and other affiliates have already come together in Greater Cleveland to improve project delivery and outcomes. Hear about shared best practices and improved project outcomes that have resulted from collaborative project teams, regardless of contract structure. Experience for yourself how an open and collaborative discussion on risk can tangibly and collectively transform the design construction industry.

  • Identify primary risks within healthcare project delivery and how they have been impacted by the COVID-19 crisis.
  • Understand how risk can quickly escalate from one party to another within healthcare project delivery.
  • Increase your understanding on the importance of collaborative and ongoing discussions with owners, architects, engineers and contractors.
  • Better identify your role in risk mitigation and learn best practices in the de­escalation of risk across all project parties.
