NYC Project Management Firms Combine Forces to Better Serve Healthcare Institutions

Macro Consultants and Cornerstone Program Advisors to Leverage Complementary Services

NEW YORK — Macro Consultants LLC and Cornerstone Program Advisors LLC announce the combination of their service offerings in a partnership geared toward better serving healthcare institutions. This partnership will allow healthcare organizations which are undertaking capital projects and other improvements to benefit from a suite of project management services never before combined into a single offering. 

Macro is a New York-based project management firm specializing in owner’s representation services, with a unique core-competency in the management of furniture, fixtures and equipment; technology; relocation; decommissioning; and fixed asset programs. Cornerstone, also based in New York, manages the planning, design, and construction of capital improvement programs for hospitals with an unmatched specialty in managing the cross-coordination of plant and system infrastructure.

“Partnering with Cornerstone offers Macro entree to an entire sector that demands a specific skill set due to unique challenges not seen in typical corporate projects,” explained Michael Glatt, managing principal at Macro. “By leveraging Cornerstone’s unique position in the healthcare sector, Macro will be able to apply its expertise in a variety of specialties to this market.”

“Healthcare institutions are dealing with increasing pressure to deliver more with less while managing multiple disciplines throughout overwhelmingly complex capital projects,” shared Tom Telegades, managing principal at Cornerstone. “The combination of Cornerstone’s healthcare experience with Macro’s broad range of specialties will enhance our ability to manage risk and control costs. Clients should see an almost immediate positive impact to their projects’ bottom lines.”

Under the terms of the agreement, Macro and Cornerstone will co-manage capital improvement projects with Cornerstone acting as team lead.
