Regional VP of Stillwater Medical Center (SMC)

Over the past several weeks, we have been collecting lessons learned and now wish to share these in a weekly series, Design Thinking: Interviews from the Front Lines of COVID-19.

We launched this series with our interview of Steven Friedman, PE, Facility Director at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York City. Mr. Friedman was a principal consultant on the conversion of the Javits Center to a temporary medical facility. His insight and knowledge were particularly timely as both the federal and state governments were contemplating these type projects in Arkansas, Nebraska, Kansas, Oklahoma, and Missouri.

As our discussions with other hospital and healthcare officials have continued, we’ve learned that as COVID-19 has placed unique stress on our healthcare system, hospital teams have found ways to evolve and adapt patient treatment and care, staffing, supply chains, patient flow, equipment planning, telehealth, infrastructure, and master planning.
