COLUMBUS, Ohio — Recognizing strong opportunity to expand healthcare architecture services from Central Ohio to regional, national and international markets, M+A Architects and KMA Design Partners, LLC have joined forces with the creation of K|M+A Healthcare Studio.
With KMA/DP’s breadth and depth of experience in a wide range of healthcare architecture facilities and project types, enhanced by M+A’s market edge, strong architectural resources and complimentary services lines, K|M+A Healthcare Studio anticipates expanding services to healthcare systems and providers in Central Ohio and beyond, as they adapt to continually changing market conditions, healthcare consumer expectations, trends toward heightened patient acuity, evolution in medical technology and an increasing interest in wellness.
K|M+A Healthcare Studio has been organized as an internal division of M+A Architects, with KMA/DP founding principal P’Elizabeth Koelker joining M+A as partner and healthcare studio director.
“This move allows both companies to grow more efficiently while effectively serving our existing and new clients in the healthcare industry,” said John Eymann, M+A Architects’ partner. “Growth and diversification was a goal of each of our companies, and we believe we complement each other well in those pursuits.”
K|M+A Healthcare Studio anticipates expanding service both to long-term clients such as OhioHealth and The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, and to other regional and national health systems with which they have existing relationships, including hospitals in Kentucky, Indiana, Michigan and Pennsylvania. K|M+A focuses on acute-care and design-sensitive project types, including emergency departments, oncology centers, inpatient suites, diagnostic and treatment areas, cardiac care spaces, women & children’s and pediatric facilities, and public areas in healthcare settings.
