University Park Campus Unites Employees Under One Roof
University Health’s space at its new University Park campus will house 1,000 employees. This will be the first time many nonclinical employees with the San Antonio healthcare system are united under one roof. The new campus is designed to foster collaboration across different teams which had previously worked in multiple office locations across the city.
After purchasing two properties with more than 80,000 square feet each in late 2020, University Health teamed with workspace innovation company Vari to begin designing a safe, connected campus. The first phase was to design a custom floorplan with 488 workstations in the first building that could be installed in weeks.
University Health chief operating officer Ed Banos says configuration, speed and flexibility were critical to the project’s success.
“What we like about the flexibility of the spaces is that we know some of our departments are going to grow. We’re a growing organization. I think that’s what we like about the furniture as well. We don’t need to bring in movers and people to put it together,” Banos said.
