PATIENT-CENTERED DESIGN

From small community clinics to large specialty hospitals, we have designed all facets of healthcare settings requiring unique solutions that combine the treatment of actual patients with educational opportunities for all levels of healthcare professionals. Our patient-centered design philosophy prioritizes the importance of a comfortable and emotionally-supportive environment for both patients and medical professionals while ensuring the 7 Flows of Healthcare are met: the flow of the patients, clinicians, medications, supplies, equipment, information, and process engineering. Our team is knowledgeable of the highly-technical configurations required of today’s healthcare facilities and has worked closely with specialized consultants to locate medical equipment, address the distribution of gases and liquids throughout plumbing systems, and ensure the technical requirements for energy, lighting, temperature, and humidity controls are aptly met. With a combined 40 years of experience, our team is proficient at planning the intricate details of a new facility as well as the expansion or reconfiguration of an existing healthcare facility; all while allowing our client to remain operational during construction. Through a thoughtful, collaborative design process, we strive to meet our clients’ varied needs by providing state-of-the-art facilities that not only meet budget requirements, but provide the durability, flexibility, and security required of today’s healthcare facilities.
