Nonprofit medical system selects construction program management software to support more than $1 billion in capital construction projects
PLANTATION, Fla. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — April 7, 2016 — e-Builder, the pioneer in fully integrated, cloud-based construction program management software, announced today that Jackson Health System selected e-Builder Enterprise™ to manage more than one billion dollars in construction projects. Focused on providing quality care to those in the Miami-Dade area, the nonprofit medical system chose e-Builder to help drive cost savings and productivity improvements.
Prior to implementing e-Builder Enterprise, Jackson Health System relied upon a variety of disparate solutions that lacked the capability to centralize processes, restricting the organization from strategic collaboration between architecture, engineering and construction firms and specialty contractors, both from a time and financial perspective. Now, it is able to reduce procurement time from years to months and expects to save millions of dollars in insurance premiums by implementing a centralized construction insurance program. These financial resources can then be reinvested in capital programs focusing on the primary goal: improving patient health.
“As Jackson embarks on a major, $1.4 billion capital plan to build new facilities and upgrade existing facilities, we are committed to transparency in every aspect of the process,” said Carlos A. Migoya, president and CEO of Jackson Health System. “By implementing e-Builder Enterprise, all of our stakeholders – including architects, contractors, builders and procurement teams – will have real-time insight into project status updates.”
“Jackson Health System is an important organization in South Florida, providing invaluable health resources to those in the area,” said Ron Antevy, President & CEO, e-Builder. “We are always thrilled to have the opportunity to work with systems like this, but the fact that it serves our same community makes this process even more meaningful.”
With over 20 years of experience in the construction industry, e-Builder helps major healthcare organizations across North America minimize cost and schedule delays by increasing project control and collaborative workflows. With existing customers including Inova Health System and Banner Health, e-Builder has proven to be a valuable asset to healthcare organizations time and again, assisting in the efficient execution of new construction, remodels, rehabs and renovations.
