Healthcare design is a passion for us. All aspects of healthcare design, construction and operations are important to us. We attend national healthcare conferences, as well as regional specialty programs addressing ED’s, Cancer Centers and other facility specialties. We attend the International ASHE Planning, Design & Construction Conference each year. Our educational activity has connected us to the best healthcare consultants and advisors from across the nation that we can bring to your project when needed.
We pay attention to all aspects of our client’s needs from existing conditions, to new more effective and efficient care models, to state-of-art building and systems technologies, to patient and family privacy, comfort and healing, to physician and staff effectiveness and satisfaction, to cost, construction and codes. Our work has won awards including an ASHE VISTA Award at the 2002 national PDC.
Coming from a corporate and real estate development background, Optimus saw the need twenty-four years ago to move healthcare from more costly, less attractive, less patient & family friendly institutional models to more flexible, efficient and attractive hospitality models. This trend eventually developed into the Planetree model which we embrace.
