Healthcare

Providing Solutions for Evolving Healthcare Practices and Technologies


The design of healthcare facilities focuses on ever-changing, extraordinary challenges and opportunities where new practices and technologies can be introduced daily. A recognized leader in the field of healthcare architecture since the 1960s, RATCLIFF embraces these potentials for exploration and evolution, successfully completing projects for healthcare clients in diverse organizations and locations.

RATCLIFF's group of specialists is skilled and experienced in healthcare operations, planning and programming, and looks to involve all client players in tangible roles in making durable decisions that meet strategic goals. Partnering as leaders of a team, we work with our clients to seek out and deliver the most advantageous solutions. Our healthcare architectural teams focus on the exacting standards and environments required for healthcare services in an era of genetically-based, minimally-invasive, and wireless technology delivery approaches. Simultaneously, RATCLIFF strives to provide sensitive healing environments that are attentive to patient comfort and well being.
