The design of healthcare facilities involves driving a dynamic relationship of change in operations, technology, regulations, image making and behavior to create spaces for wellness and healing. Ratcliff offers an attitude of discovery and constant improvement in our relentless search for opportunity and creative solutions to the challenges facing the healthcare network. We imagine a future that improves the lives we serve and is regenerative by nature. We design to achieve the most beneficial outcome for our healthcare clients, patients, visitors, frontline healthcare providers and the larger community. Ratcliff has an unrivaled depth of experience in design and construction of complex healthcare facilities with the skills in operational analysis/process mapping; lean project management and delivery, regulatory expertise, and sustainable design.
We are experienced in the management, planning, design and construction of complex healthcare facilities including medical campus master plans, new construction projects, renovations and additions to acute care projects and outpatient facilities. We have planned and designed 700 healthcare projects representing over 8 million square feet and more than a billion dollars in healthcare construction.

The highly integrated and collaborative team of DPR and Ratcliff helped North Bay meet our goals with aplomb! They completed the project well under budget and on schedule and drove innovation through all aspects of the project's design and construction. The integrated project delivery methodology fostered the kind of teamwork and communication necessary to manage risk, control change, and reduce RFl's and change orders.
The project has been a truly collaborative effort between John Muir Health physicians and staff, the Ratcliff team, Pankow Special Projects and Clark Construction. The successful progression of the project is a demonstration of everyone’s commitment to the well-being of this community.
