For more than twenty years, we’ve demonstrated our commitment to healthcare design in support of patients who face health challenges and healthcare workers who provide compassionate care. 

Our role as architects is to help clients stay ahead of the perpetual evolution and reinvention of the healthcare industry. Our clients serve patients, providing treatment and services that will result in successful medical outcomes and positive patient experiences. We provide responsive designs that support the delivery of healthcare in a safe and effective healing environment.

PDT offers a collaborative approach. We recognize that our clients know their business, and we see them as partners in the successful development of a project. We work alongside every level of stakeholder, including providers and caregivers, facility departments, equipment vendors, and administrators. We value our long-term working relationships.

PDT provides leadership and direction by guiding our clients through a design process that’s right-sized for each project. The process begins with defining the problem and understanding the goals while keeping in mind the realities of budget and schedule. The shared vision and goals become an important measure of the project’s success.

PDT delivers solutions that are flexible, creative, and beautiful. Our medical and operational planning is evidence-based, addressing today’s ever-changing technologies and models of patient care. Our building designs promote the health and wellness of patients and caregivers and exemplify sustainable solutions grounded in building science.  The sensitive use of space, light, color and texture can positively impact the patient experience, affect wellbeing, and lead to improved outcomes.
