Hospitals look a bit different these days.

Rather than the massive, all-in-one buildings of old, more specialized institutions are being constructed. 

In order to meet patient demand there are more cardiovascular centers, oncology towers and children’s hospitals than ever before. And the firms doing the work have learned to adapt to new demands from healthcare architects.

Our rankings of these healthcare general contractors are based on the values of projects in planning and construction in our database at the time of publication.

These figures may fluctuate and the values represented in this list reflect a snapshot in time.

We’re going to be looking at ten of the top hospital general contractors in the United States and preview some of the projects that exemplify their work.
