Swedish Health is the largest non-profit healthcare provider in the greater Seattle area and is a standard-bearer for quality service within the Providence Health & Services system. To maintain its strategic capability in a high-profile competitive market for the next 30-years, Swedish initiated several large-scale capital programs. The centerpiece of this strategy is the Swedish First Hill Campus Expansion project. MGAC serves as the Owner Advisor for the complete low-voltage and technology program. Spanning multiple projects and exceeding $50M in installation value, the technology program represents a vital cost-to-efficiency investment within the total $1B+ project.
Three critical inputs are constantly influencing coordination, innovation, and procurement decisions: streamlining operational and maintenance costs, establishing technology platforms to
flex with evolving demand and business models, and establishing requirements that benefit one of the largest health systems in the United States. MGAC identified these critical path inputs and manages the methods by which design development, coordination, and systems procurement are influenced by them. Whether creating interactive 3D room scans of critical
spaces, evaluating optimization opportunities from autonomous robotics, forecasting the next generation of mobile communication platforms, or establishing cost certainty for dozens of technology platforms, MGAC leadership is modernizing legacy assumptions around healthcare facility design.
