The plan evaluates and proposes a strategic vision for two major components of the JPS network; the main JPS hospital campus and its community health services located throughout Tarrant County.
The plan provides a foundation from which JPS can assess its main campus in terms of maximizing efficiency, utilization, and impact on the surrounding neighborhoods in a fiscally responsible manner. It addresses immediate needs and looks into JPS future to recommend a comprehensive strategy for utilizing facilities, maximizing operational capacities and organizing services across the network.
The strategic facilities utilization plan provides benchmarks that allow JPS to continually monitor its progress and reevaluate its priorities as appropriate. It provides a flexible pathway for growth, including identification of short term and long term priorities, and phased implementation.

The process involved directors of each of the Allied Health Programs, the Allied Health Programs Division Chair, the Vice President of Applied Sciences, the Dean of Institutional Effectiveness and Accreditation, the Executive Director of Facilities, the Chief Financial Officer and President/ CEO of the College. The group held brainstorming sessions to discuss program needs and identify growth influencers for each of the individual programs. We identified both positive and negative growth influencers for individual programs and globally, across all programs. We evaluated program capacities based on existing enrollment, curriculum and degree contact hours, and program resources.

As part of our study to plan for development of a growing medical campus, we master planned medical mixed-use sites in various South Dallas neighborhoods. The plan allowed for a process-oriented growth strategy and included the following components:
