Complete Your Hospital Build with a Fit Up

If you’ve recently moved to a new hospital location or built a newly constructed medical facility, you’re in the right place. You may be wondering how to complete the project to ensure your new space best meets your needs. Learn more about how the hospital “fit out” or “fit up” phase can add value and ensure your space is transformed into an optimal working environment.

What is A Fit Up?

The “fit out” or “fit up” phase is also commonly called the “build out” or “initial outfitting”. This type of project tailors your space to best meet the needs of your application. In some sense, a hospital fit out is comparable to FF&E installation in the retail and hospitality sectors. The build out process may include the following and more:

  • Improving room layout for use.
  • Installation, set-up and testing of medical equipment.
  • Rearranging furniture and equipment.
  • The implementation and testing of IT equipment.
  • Set up of security and monitoring equipment.
  • Cleaning and maintenance tasks.
  • Preparing the space for large equipment moves.
  • Relocating any items from one space to another.
  • Fire and safety related assessments and tasks.
  • Distribution of materials to ensure rooms are stocked and ready for use.
  • Adding finishing touches, artwork and décor.

Why Complete a Hospital Fit-Out or Initial Outfitting?

You’ve invested time and money into acquiring a new space; it’s worth investing a little extra to ensure it is set up for best use. Once you start working in your new environment, it’s unlikely that you’ll have the opportunity to clear the space, step back and make any significant changes. Take the time now to ensure it is set up to make day to day life easier, more efficient and pleasant.

Once the fit out is complete, your space will be ready for use, and optimized to make every day better for your patients and staff.

How to Choose a Hospital Fit Out Team

To ensure your space can be used in the best way possible, choose to work with a hospital fit out team whose expertise you can trust:

  • Choose a team that is familiar with your industry and has experience installing and moving medical equipment.
  • Find a team that will communicate with you to understand your unique goals and processes. Expect to work with a single point of contact so you always know who to turn to with questions or concerns.
  • Opt for a third-party logistics (3PL) team with the network and variety of services you need. A good 3PL will be able to offer a comprehensive solution, from warehousing to transportation.
