This is an exciting time to be a member of the Orange Regional Medical Center Family, especially when considering the construction of our new hospital and how it will assist us in better serving our community’s healthcare needs. There are many important activities that we are undertaking as an organization to help us prepare for work in our new facility. Hospital leadership has developed 16 teams to oversee and coordinate all aspects of the new hospital project. Specifically, the Move Management team is planning for the physical relocation of our two campuses.

Moving a hospital, or in our case two hospitals, is a very complex process. We have engaged AOS Inc., a company that specializes in large, complex healthcare moves, to guide us through the process. AOS has successfully moved over 30 hospitals in the past 10 years, and will work with us until our physical transition into the new hospital is completed.

AOS leverages their experience and will apply sophisticated project management tools and techniques to ensure the execution of our move is smooth. Project leaders at AOS have prior careers in military logistics management, moving people and equipment around the globe. Over the coming months, employees and physicians may be asked to work with AOS and Orange Regional leadership on this relocation effort. Your support, cooperation and input will be very important to this process.

I appreciate your support and participation in these important planning efforts. Hospital employees are asked to please reach out to your supervisor if you have questions, comments, concerns or ideas for our transition strategy.
