As healthcare costs increase and technology advances, patient care continues to shift away from traditional inpatient hospitals to outpatient care centers. As the designer of the first bedless hospital, Gresham Smith knows the ins and outs of outpatient design and has experience planning and designing all types of ambulatory care facilities. From ambulatory surgery centers and freestanding emergency departments to medical office buildings and physician offices, our team of architects, interior designers, engineers and planners use evidence-based, research-backed design strategies to elevate the patient and staff experience and transform the health of communities.
