TIM KEENAN
CHFM, CBET, administrative director of support
services and facilities, St. Anthony Hospital
(Lakewood, Colo.)

WHO HE IS: With 28 years of experience in the healthcare industry, a
bachelor's degree in electrical engineering technology from Colorado
Technical University, and other accreditations such as ASHE Certified Facility Manager and Certified
Biomedical Equipment Technician,
what truly defines Keenan is his
passion to create healing environments. This goal has driven his career, which includes the development and implementation of many programs and technologies to improve
patient outcomes and increase patient safety, with his
ideas established as best practices within the corporate
structure of dozens of hospitals. In his current role, he
oversaw St. Anthony Hospital's four-year, $430 million
replacement project as well as a 29-bed expansion-each
with a design emphasis on patient comfort, safety, sustainability, and sound reduction.
YEAR IN REVIEW: In September 2016, Keenan opened a 36-

inside the Innovation Unit
at St. Anthony Hospital

bed Innovation Unit, an operational acute care unit in the
hospital, that serves as a physical representation of his
quest to continually improve the patient environment. He
spent countless hours collecting and analyzing data from
patient complaints, repair requests, patient fall reports,
and HCAHPS results to drive the design alongside feedback gleaned from listening sessions with designers and
nurses. The result includes fall prevention measures, such
as an additional light in the patient bathrooms, replacement of compact fluorescents with LEDs so lights turn on
more quickly, and a night light moved closer to the bathroom wall. Additionally, dimmable cove lighting and wall
sconces were installed in the corridors to improve patient
sleep, ceiling tiles were upgraded to a 0.95 NRC rating for
noise reduction, and a custom air diffuser was placed below the edge of ceiling tiles to eliminate the collection of
dust on edges. Also in 2016, Joint Commission surveyors
recognized Keenan's quality and completeness of paperwork, attention to detail, and creativity in emergency preparedness drills, and owner Centura Health awarded him
with its first Mission Spirit Award for his diligence in ensuring St. Anthony Hospital adheres to the health system's
mission and core values.

WHAT'S NEXT: In the coming year, Keenan expects to earn
ASHE Construction Manager Certification as well as the
new Life Safety Certification from NFPA. At St. Anthony
Hospital, he'll oversee the build-out of a new MRI suite,
outpatient wound care center, and a logistics center-each
designed with his learnings as a basis for achieving the optimal environment. The hospital will also roll out a continuous energy monitoring program to further reduce energy
consumption as well as care process improvements to enhance patient safety.
