Human-centric healthcare environments

Supporting patient, staff, and capital needs

Healthcare makes lives better, and so do we. JLG’s award-winning healthcare practice studio focuses on integrated design that streamlines the systems and pathways that your staff and patients rely on. Through intuitive wayfinding, sustainable design, interior detailing, inclusive staff spaces, telehealth, and collaborative delivery models, we create efficiency that emphasizes dignity, equity, and access to healing.

Capital maximization is the key to future resiliency. Our Healthcare practice studio creates long-term partnerships using evidence-based design principles that explore operational feedback throughout the design process and into the future through post occupancy evaluations. JLG partners with you to define strategies for improvement, expansion, and positive change.

Most importantly, we listen. We use curiosity to understand your team’s ideas; working together to empower the people who power your healthcare system.
