September 22, 2020 – Gordian (Greenville, SC) announced a contract with Vizient (Irving, TX) to offer a range of first-class facilities solutions at enhanced savings to help providers focus on providing exceptional patient care. The agreement offers Vizient members an innovative construction procurement system, facilities strategy and construction project execution services, including Gordian’s Job Order Contracting (JOC), Assessment & Planning and Return on Physical Assets (ROPA) solutions.
The company says the agreement provides Vizient members with a unique opportunity to procure construction services from Vizient supplier contracts through a streamlined, fixed-price procurement process. Gordian’s JOC solutions will enable Vizient members to get repair, maintenance, renovation and new construction projects completed through local, competitively-awarded Vizient supplier contracts that provide pricing transparency on all work performed.
These value-based construction solutions are designed to help healthcare facilities control construction costs, reduce change orders and improve project cost transparency. Gordian solutions are proven to lower overall project costs, decrease pre-construction costs and provide higher-quality construction for healthcare providers.
Gordian’s Assessment & Planning service helps healthcare providers understand the condition of their facilities and go beyond the outputs of the traditional facility condition assessment (FCA), the company says. Gordian gathers and analyzes data, interviews stakeholders and places buildings into portfolios to help leaders understand needs, communicate the impact of investments and prioritize project selection.
With Gordian’s Return on Physical Assets (ROPA) solution, healthcare providers receive a data-driven view of their performance to help balance operational goals, strategic facilities management and deferred maintenance. The Gordian team works with healthcare providers nationwide to gather and analyze the right data to help inform critical business decisions and make smarter facilities investments.
