Kaleida Health engaged Vargas Associates to provide the FF&E coordination for their new 430,000 square foot John R. Oishei Children’s hospital. We processed in-depth programming meetings with each department and documenting their furniture needs based on capacities and work flow. Once furniture drawings and specifications were completed, we issued a RFP and reviewed the submissions to make an award recommendation to Kaleida leadership. We have selected furniture finishes to coordinate with the building’s interiors and highlight the playful nature of the Children’s Hospital. We are currently in the process of finalizing the procurement of their 12 patient floors along with Clinical and Administration spaces. Vargas Associates will be overseeing furniture installations for the Oishei Children’s Hospital in 2017, as well as expediting the furniture punch list.
