Health Care

Our healthcare experience ranges from design of individual private practice medical offices, to complete ambulatory surgical centers, including cath labs, special procedure rooms, linear accelerators, and imaging centers such as CAT scan, PET scan, and MRI units.

We have the expertise to address all aspects of these facilities including HVAC, medical gasses, plumbing, critical/emergency power, along with life-safety systems such as fire alarm, patient telemetry, nurse call, and code blue. We routinely work directly with physicians and their staff, facilities directors, and medical equipment suppliers, and are experienced with the standards and procedures of the Agency of Healthcare Administration, Office of Plans and Construction.

Miami VA Hospital – Cath Lab Replacement

Miami VA Hospital

JLRD worked closely with the VA staff and contractors to coordinate the documents for this Hybrid Cath Lab replacement on the 7th Floor of the Miami VA Medical Center, so that the adjacent cath lab could remain in operation during the construction period. Further complicating the challenge was the fact that this lab was immediately adjacent to the surgical suite, which was undergoing a remodel and expansion at the same time, requiring coordination between the design teams for each project.
