arcDESIGN helps you transform healthcare experiences by optimizing workflows, reducing costs, and boosting patient and staff satisfaction. We achieve this through a collaborative process that aligns your architectural requirements with patient needs and evidence-based practices — leveraging our deep expertise in Lean, IPD, and patient-centered design. Working closely with clients, we develop an in-depth understanding of facility goals as well as staff and patient needs.

Then, working with advanced tools and technologies, we deliver uniquely immersive designs that anticipate and solve issues early in the process, uncovering the best solution for each facility.  

Areas of Our Healthcare Design Expertise
  • Outpatient Care

    Our extensive experience in designing for outpatients covers everything from interior clinic renovations to large new campuses with multi-specialty outpatient centers.  We help healthcare systems create more efficient and flexible outpatient environments through the use of modular clinic pods, shared support spaces, and appreciated staff amenities.

  • Surgery Centers

    At aD, we’ve developed standards for ambulatory surgery centers to provide easy accessibility, patient comfort, and spatial efficiency.  We understand the complexities of the code requirements, licensure regulations, and equipment needs and manage them with a smooth process that includes a clean design and unique branding.

  • Behavioral Health

    We have experience with both inpatient and outpatient behavioral care settings and understand the unique attention that these projects require to provide the safety, security, and comfort that these patients and their caregivers require. 

  • Inpatient Care + Hospitals

    We are trusted for our healthcare design expertise in both large and small hospital projects.  From complex imaging, surgery, pharmacy and lab renovations to full new hospital campuses, we lead a collaborative and interactive design process based in research and best practices with our customized healthcare design tools.

  • Masterplanning

    aD has delivered hospital master plans both independently and in collaboration with national healthcare programmers. We can assemble the appropriate team of experts for any master planning needs.

  • Facility Management + Space Allocation

    aD aids in the development of facility-based plans, tracking department square footage allocations for current documentation and future planning. We enjoy being a resource and trusted partner by advising on building code, life safety, and hospital licensure requirements.
