Dallas, Texas/254 beds
BOKA Powell led the Strategic Facility Master Planning (FMP) Process for Methodist Dallas Medical Center and the result has been a vision-driven “Centennial Plan” for 2027. The Charlton Campus plan includes planning for the appropriate use and organization of increasingly disparate space within the existing facility, bed capacity expansion, improvement of campus circulation, way-finding, and future consolidation of outpatient services. The FMP targeted expansion of the Emergency Department and Support Services as key next steps. The plan includes proposed campus zoning for inpatient services, outpatient services and support components. The inpatient zoning plan includes reserving a location for a future bed tower; the outpatient zoning plan includes planning for the growth of new outpatient MOBs on land currently owned by Methodist Charlton. The project’s strategic process included operational benchmarking, department utilization modeling, analysis of space and facilities utilization and departmental adjacency needs, identification of key planning units, collaborative projections development, priorities and phasing recommendations.
The FMP process followed four major concepts:
• Improve utilization & efficiency for MHS campuses within their existing facilities
• Separate & consolidate outpatient vs. inpatient vs. support components
• Increase efficiency for public and staff by improving campus way-finding & circulation
• Identify future opportunities for growth
