Hudson Valley Hospital Center

Situation:

HVHC is a regional healthcare provider in central New York offering inpatient care, medical, surgical, maternity, intensive care and progressive care services. Recently recognized for awards in excellence, HVHC developed a campus facilities master plan that included new medical office buildings, parking garage and hospital renovations.

Problem:

After undergoing steps to manage this enormous task internally, they soon realized they needed to find an expert with the background and experience to move this project along. They needed a true outsource model that would work alongside their wayfinding consultant and facilities team to plan, design and coordinate wayfinding and signage during this expansion.

Solution:

We started with an exterior and interior wayfinding analysis to understand the planned traffic flow changes and future building construction. Next, we developed sign standard designs to allow for changeability, branding and architectural elements. To complete the project, we created custom interior and exterior sign designs within budget and on time-in an accelerated schedule. The changeable interior and exterior sign components offer ease of use and long term cost savings for future updates.

“Understanding the complexity and scope of this project, we knew that SSS was the perfect partner – a turnkey outsource solution. Sign Systems worked side by side with us to handle the exterior and interior planning/wayfinding, design, permit processing, installation and project management on all phases of this project. They provided a custom design with flexibility to meet the changing needs of the client as they grow.
