More than Project Management. Project Leadership.

Our project management team is comprised of professionals from design, construction and engineering backgrounds. We are not just experienced with capital programs, but also bring deep industry and development knowledge. Working with our healthcare clients through the entirety of a project lifecycle gives us the perspective to go above and beyond on-time and on-budget to help our clients achieve the right strategic project for their market. Ultimately, this ensures our healthcare facility development projects fulfill one of the most critical goals—creating a superior healing environment where people need it most.

We understand the overwhelming demands on capital in today’s environment and view being good stewards of our clients’ financial resources as a top priority, acting as though their resources were our own. We often deliver savings that exceed our fee.

Flexible Project Management Delivery Model

Hammes Healthcare is focused on providing real value through cost savings and by being flexible in the delivery of our services. We recognize many of our client partners have in-house resources. Our approach is to work collaboratively with clients to provide the right level of support ranging from full program management to staff augmentation with the same end goal in mind—helping our clients deliver quality, cost-effective patient care.

Owner’s Representation/Program and Project Management

We understand scale. From a single healthcare facility project or a vast expansion program, we serve as a fiduciary and trusted advisor to our clients. We have extensive experience helping healthcare organizations plan, manage and execute all aspects of a capital improvement project from start to finish.

Case Study

Staff Augmentation

In-house design and construction teams are sophisticated operating units inside a health system. However, at times even in-house bandwidth and expertise can be exceeded. Acting as an extension of our clients’ teams, our seasoned healthcare project executives work collaboratively alongside healthcare organization’s internal project managers to bring the needed expertise to assigned projects.

Case Study

PMO Consulting

Determining if a healthcare organization’s project management office is appropriately structured is a critical but can be overlooked in the day to day of managing the work. Based on our experience, our team works with the Vice President or Director of Facilities, Design and Construction to understand existing resources and evaluate demand based on the system’s master plan to develop an organizational chart that is aligned with the operating expense for this group and a structure to successfully plan and execute projects with your existing team.

Operational Readiness & Transition Planning

There is facility readiness and patient readiness. To be ready for patients, healthcare organizations must be operationally ready. Our operational readiness service assures organizations are operationally poised to receive and serve patients upon opening a new or renovated healthcare facility.

Led by former healthcare executives, our team develops and manages an informed operational work plan to identify and coordinate activation activities and departmental tasks such as staffing and training, revenue cycle and billing, regulatory and accreditation, emergency preparedness, operational practice, and contract and licensure tracking. The work plan coordinates tasks and business functions, assigns responsibility and deadlines, and drives execution and focus aligned with the organization's first patient date.
