Project Leadership Gold Award Winner: Methodist Olive Branch Hospital


DeSoto County, Mississippi, has experienced tremendous growth over the past two decades. To ensure the county’s burgeoning population has access to high-quality healthcare services, Methodist Le Bonheur Healthcare (MLH) built a 100-bed, full-service, faith-based hospital in the city of Olive Branch. The 208,000 square-foot facility includes four operating rooms, 18 emergency department exam rooms, an intensive care unit, as well as labor and delivery facilities. The total budget for the new hospital was set at $100 million (including medical equipment, land cost, furniture, etc.), and the goal of the project was to deliver an energy efficient, LEED-certified, modern healthcare facility without exceeding the budget. To help achieve this goal, the project team employed Integrated Project Delivery (IPD), Building Information Modeling (BIM), and LEAN Construction principals, all of which ultimately allowed the team to deliver a successful project ahead of schedule and below budget.
