HOK has become one of the worldâ€™s preeminent sustainable design experts and many of our projects have received LEED Certification.
We have made the commitment to design facilities from the whole building perspective.
The new model of health sciences is changing from a focus on treatment of disease to a focus on health.
An interdisciplinary model for education, research, and the practice of medicine is at the forefront of design for health sciences.
Evolving trends in medicine and treatment, including translational medicine, genomic medicine and research, proteomics, and evolving patient-centered care models are shaping todayâ€™s academic health centers.

The move towards an interdisciplinary model for health sciences education, research and patient care presents tremendous potential for whole health and wellness excellence. Design can be a vital catalyst in achieving this; creating a transformative stage for integration and collaboration.
The increasing partnerships between medical health care centers, institutions conducting biological sciences research, engineering colleges, medical schools and public health agencies means there is an interdisciplinary education and training shift from a vertically integrated approach to more cross-cutting initiatives that focus on predictive, personalized and preventive care.
HOK is proud to be a supporter of the Association of American Medical Colleges; and we have designed teaching, research, clinical and educational facilities at more than 50 of the AAMC Member Institutions.

HOK designed this educational facility to serve as the hub of this urban medical campus.
The program for the Center explores the connections between the objectives of curricular changes and the quality and configuration of the spaces for learning.
The scope of the project addressed the development of a learning environment for the entire school, honoring its core mission: teaching, research and patient care. The Centerâ€™s primary goals were to provide state-of-the-art teaching facilities in support of a dynamic curriculum, create a place that would become the heart and identity of the School, offer medical and graduate students study spaces that support a variety of learning

Functionally and visually, this project reflects the clientâ€™s progressive vision: allowing a two-year community college to move forward and provide students with state-of-the-art facilities that rival or surpass neighboring four-year colleges and universities.
Originally intended as three separate building programs, it was determined that a combined, single building offered economic efficiencies and a unique environment to promote student and faculty interaction. As an integral part of its surrounding community, the building includes flexible research and teaching lab spaces to accommodate targeted learning programs in cooperation with the high technology corporate neighbors, and a dental clinic that offers services to the community.
