Happy National Hospital Week! Along with everyone at Findorff, I honor the healthcare workers who support their communities with hope, healing, and passion for dedicated care. As a Findorff Superintendent, I see firsthand the skill and care in the daily activities of the incredible staff serving healthcare facilities. We honor that effort everyday by our own commitment to quality construction.
People often ask me how construction in the healthcare industry is different. The answer is simple: empathy. Here are some of the things we do at Findorff to keep empathy at the forefront of our work:
- Imagine the patients are our family members checking into the front desk, walking the corridors, or going into surgery. We keep a smile on our face because we never know what someone is going through.
- Collaborate closely with the facilities team and staff to make the environment safe and comfortable for patients and visitors. Specifically, managing air quality, controlling noise levels, and providing adequate signage are very important.
- Be prepared to adapt to the daily operations of a hospital. Plus be accessible 24 hours a day, seven days a week to help ensure a hospital is performing at its best.
It is rewarding to work as a team with our healthcare partners. Together, we put hard work and compassion into the healthcare facilities that have such an impact on communities. Thank you to all the physicians, nurses, therapists, engineers, food service staff, environmental service staff, facilities staff, volunteers, administrators, and many others. You all create healthy and safe facilities that make profound and lasting impacts on all of us.
