Texas Children's Hospital

Texas Children's Hospital

Texas Children’s facility tour will show how Lean can build a hospital. Lean isn’t just functional, it can be beautiful, too. See how with a Behind-the-Scenes tour at Texas Children's Hospital in Houston can be educational and rewarding.

Texas Children’s Hospital uses Lean techniques to maintain its consistent ranking as one of the United States’ best children’s hospitals (routinely lauded by U.S. News & World Report and Best Doctors of America). So, when it needed to expand the facility from five floors to two towers with 26 floors, management knew that Lean tools would improve every step of the way – from concept to design to completion.
