Modeling pre/post bed needs for an Interventional Platform

Live webinar: Thursday December 8th, 11am (ET)


Join architect Frank Zilm as he discusses the development of an “Interventional Platform” concept, integrating surgery, cardiac procedures, interventional radiology, and endoscopy services, as part of planning for a $500 million Saint Louis University Hospital renewal project.


In this webinar session, Frank will detail how he and the planning team approached the challenge of determining the optimum number of required pre-procedure and post procedure beds for this concept using SIMUL8 to model future pre/post flow steps for major patient types.
