About Us

For the last forty, over 90% of our work has been with hospitals and medical campuses. We have provided master planning and design for every aspect of healthcare delivery. Each and every person in our firm is working on some form of a hospital or medical project at all times. You could apply all of the current methodologies, processes, and buzz words in creating excellent design service but still fall short of specific goals. We do not. The number of clients that we have continued to serve over the last thirty plus years is extremely important to us. We consistently provide quality service and excellent design at a fair price. Generally our clients call us and say, “We need to get this project going, and we’d like you to get started right away.” The feedback from our clients demonstrates their appreciation of our responsiveness and accessibility. These are the principles we believe in. Medical design is not just what we do, it’s what we do best!

“Medical design is not just what we do, it’s what we do best!”
