Contributing to the care of humankind, to the efficient allocation of society's resources, and to the quality of the built environment, HOK is working with academic medical centers, healthcare organizations, and community hospitals to redefine service delivery for the 21st century. This unparalleled experience enables HOK's medical planners to help clinicians define the future of care and create environments that support the clinicians' vision. We bring this expertise to every project regardless of size.
Passionate about the healthcare environments we design, we make it our business to know every aspect of medical care so that we can leverage our knowledge to build consensus, as well as test alternate solutions. With each project's unique culture and population, new concepts and features are being incorporated, aiming to reduce operating costs while enhancing patient satisfaction and medical outcomes.
At HOK, our goal is to create a built environment that supports staff and nurtures patients, while making a distinguished statement to the community in an environmentally responsible way. We achieve project goals through a collaborative process that engages our clients, our consultants, and our communities.
