And when your employee retention rates are unbelievably high, you build an exceptional bank of knowledge and expertise. Our major focus for more than 20 years has been community hospitals and a variety of educational facilities.
There is something very special about community hospitals and the people they serve. Often far from big-city medical complexes that have specialty wings or entire hospitals for every major disease, community hospitals do a little bit of everything.
Providing a healing environment can be a challenge when the reception desk by day becomes the nurses' station by night. But we find great reward in making every inch of space count because we understand that lives literally depend on it.
We can't think of two industries that rely more on building design to facilitate an exceptional experience for staff, clients, and the public, than healthcare and education. That makes educational facilities an ideal partner to our healthcare design and allows us to hone these complementary skills. You might say it makes for really "smart" design.
