Read up on the top medical architects in this space and some key projects they are working on.
In this blog we’ll list healthcare design contributions from:

The responsibility of a healthcare architect cannot be understated.
The firms and individuals who work on these massive facilities are tasked with creating a space that is both utilitarian and pleasing to the eye.
Contrary to office buildings and multifamily spaces, there’s a strong appetite for unconventional and forward-looking design.
Most importantly, the building needs to function properly.
Doctors, nurses, operations staff and patients all benefit from the aesthetics and ergonomics of a well-designed healthcare facility.
Much rests on the shoulders of the talented group of men and women paving the way in hospital design.
We’re going to be looking at ten healthcare architecture firms working on some of the largest projects in America. These projects show not only the complexity of modern hospital design but also the staggering amount ways a strong design can impact the health and well-being of staff and patients alike.
