Healthcare comes in many forms.
We know because we've designed for all of them.

Practice Areas

“The biggest reward I find is when a design exceeds client’s expectations. It needs to go beyond what they could imagine and fulfill their business goals, budget, and institutional aspirations simultaneously.”

Kent Doss, AIA, LEED AP BD+C, Lean Six Sigma Black Belt
Practice Leader, Design

Healthcare buildings are inherently complex. Designing these spaces requires developing and implementing concepts that will represent transformative built solutions all the while appreciating the healing that will take place and the lives subtly affected by the building’s shape, performance, and functional adjacencies.

“Our people are Array’s heart and soul. They have dedicated themselves to the pursuit of exceptional planning and design for our healthcare clients, and to work beside them everyday is a pleasure.”

Designing for healthcare is a complex and rewarding venture. To completely dedicate the firm’s resources to this endeavor provides Array the opportunity to truly specialize – something designers are drawn to with a singular focus.

“The creation of inspirational, uplifting spaces is in our ethos. It is why we do what we do. Planning for high-performing spaces to support best practice clinical care with safe, efficient and functional environments designed to treat and heal patients across the continuum of care sites is our priority.”

Lisa Lipschutz, RA, ACHA, EDAC, Lean Green Belt
Co-Practice Leader, Planning

Healthcare has shifted from a volume-driven to a value-driven practice. We need to do the same. Smart front-end thinking goes a long way. Array goes to great lengths to substantiate our solutions with hard data. Our pragmatic process, intensified by our unique planning toolkit, enables more-informed decisions to maximize flexibility, efficiency, and return on investment. Once a strategic, programmatic directive is formulated, it serves as a springboard and checkpoint for designing the most appropriate solution.

“Great design has the power to positively affect communities by solving complex challenges for both people and place. It begins with a focus on strategy and planning to develop efficient and supportive care facilities that improve patient outcomes, increase patient satisfaction, and provide staff with a place to better treat and care for their community.“

Lindsey Stang, AIA, GGP
Co-Practice Leader,  Planning

Uplifting and inspiring design is first conceived during the creation and planning phase of a project. It is at this junction that we can begin to explore new evidence and seek opportunities to push the boundaries of design to meet our clients’ needs. With the healthcare landscape forever evolving, we must provide a strategy to meet the current and future needs through evidence-based design, data collection, and a smart, structured design process. What draws us to design is our deep desire to effect positive change and to create a holistic and humane understanding of the relationship between buildings, people, and the environment.

Interior Design

Environments have the power to set our expectations, lift our spirits, and inspire hope. This is what motivates me to create spaces that mitigate the challenges faced by all who enter a healthcare facility.”

Patricia D. Malick, CHID, EDAC, IIDA, Lean Green Belt
Practice Leader, Interior Design

There has been a sea change in the way we shape healthcare environments. Beyond creating beautiful spaces influenced by hospitality, we have a responsibility to bring the latest evidence, benchmark data, lean thinking, and examples of successful projects into the design process. By doing so, we help our clients realize their full potential to drive a change in culture, improve patient outcomes, increase patient satisfaction, and foster an environment of collaboration.

Transformation Advisory Services

“The greatest outcomes for those who need the spaces we create will come from supporting those who care for them through a deeper understanding of their work. It is my mission to empower everyone I work with to find the best solution.”

Jonathan M. Bykowski, AIA, Lean Six Sigma Black Belt
Practice Leader, Transformation Advisory Services

Our core mission is the same as that of our clients, improve the quality of our work, increase our efficiency, and motivate our staff to reach for success. At Array, we are establishing a culture of continuous improvement at all levels of our organization. We seek to empower team members to be agents for good change. We have re-designed our design process using Lean as a foundation for a unique Process-Led approach that better meets the needs of today’s healthcare organization. We believe the transformative improvement that leading health systems, who have embraced Lean and other improvement approaches, have achieved is equally applicable to healthcare design.
