OUR CORE PHILOSOPHY
A Continuum of Care
Our portfolio includes the completion of hundreds of projects across the Continuum of Care, including acute and ambulatory care facilities, medical office buildings, and physician practice suites. At CRGA, we always strive to create a healing environment for patients and families. Quality healthcare design requires a team effort – we enjoy working as a team with our clients to design the best possible environment for their patients and staff. Learn more.
Acute care facility improvements are becoming increasingly focused on higher acuity services, Lean-driven operational efficiencies, HCAHPS scores, reimbursement models, capital/operational costs and, most importantly, patient and staff safety. These days, most health systems have less capital to spend on projects and need those dollars directed at point of care as opposed to hotel-like lobbies. We understand this and work within our clients’ budgets to develop effective solutions meeting the needs of patients, families, and caregivers. Learn more
Ambulatory care facilities, medical office buildings and other types of outpatient care facilities are becoming the preferred arenas for the delivery of health care services based on reimbursement trends and the ability to deliver services at a lower cost. Our firm’s outpatient care portfolio is comprehensive and CRGA Design is working throughout the region developing strategies and facilities that meet these new demands. Learn more
Our firm members have become specialists in developing effective designs for physician office suites. We have completed approximately 400 projects of this type, ranging from primary care clinics to specialty suites. Many of our projects include an ambulatory surgery center or procedure suites as a component of the design. Learn more
In all aspects of senior environments, from independent living to assisted living to memory care, we at CRGA design for capability rather than disability. Simple things like quality lighting, appropriate use of color/contrast and an orderly layout of space can make a difference. It is our responsibility as designers to assure that the spaces we create will allow the residents to be as independent as possible for as long as possible. Learn more
