We have designed ground up medical office buildings, multi building campuses, and interiors for more than 100 physician practices and dental practices since 1974. In the past 10 years Intergroup has completed over 80 small and medium projects in healthcare delivery systems working with hospitals, clinics, rehabilitation, emergency, urgent care, medical labs, imaging centers, weight loss centers, and long-term care services. Our team members specialize in architectural roles providing their expertise for each phase of design. Specialists have assisted providers such as Healthcare Realty Trust, Memorial Hospital / University of Colorado Health, and Denver Health & Hospital Authority.
Due to trends such as health reform, emphasis on wellness, changes in healthcare payment, an aging population, growth of technology, increased consumer involvement, and the cost of brick and mortar facilities regular facility investments have become a critical factor in healthcare. Our strategy in new and remodeled facilities is to maximize dollar investment by developing flexible plans that work for a variety of users while investing the majority of the budget in high-impact areas such as entries, common areas, and building systems.
