What We Build


Lean, collaborative building for innovative, compassionate care

Success in healthcare construction depends on the right mix of trusted specialists, crystal-clear communication and team alignment on project goals. That’s how DPR approaches all of our healthcare projects. We devote the proper time and attention to assembling project teams tailored to each healthcare customer’s individual needs.
Healthcare Expertise


DPR's team of healthcare experts combines the facility knowledge of a consultant with experience in virtual design and construction, prefabrication, technology, phasing, logistics, and equipment expertise.

We are experienced builders with a keen understanding of the unique needs and applications of the intricate systems that are the lifeline of healthcare facilities.



We believe in being a collaborative partner throughout the entire lifecycle of a project—not just the construction phase—because building a state-of-the-art health facility requires a holistic, cooperative approach.

In the complex world of healthcare, the fundamentals drive successful project delivery: experience, teamwork, communication and genuine care.



Healthcare often leads the way in technological innovation. Healthcare facilities should support that. So, we build smarter, continually striving to push the envelope and employing tools including building intelligence platforms, prefabrication, virtual design and construction, and other cutting-edge solutions.

We closely track the industry’s ever-changing regulatory requirements and continuously perfect our skills, keeping abreast of the latest standards, systems and interfaces—building a solid foundation for quality care and hospital construction.



We also know from our survey of healthcare stakeholders that health systems are trying to do more with less and navigate uncertainty in both technological advancement and our world. This means DPR teams can help you know what your budget can do, execute on adaptive reuse, and build facilities that stand the test of time and equipment advancement.

Your Patient,

Our Patient

The complexity of working in an operational facility is nothing new to DPR.

Whether it is infection control or end-user communication, our teams take a facility-specific approach to prioritize patient health, staff productivity and safety in order to eliminate unplanned disruptions to healthcare providers’ important work.

Every day, patients rely on healthcare professionals when the stakes couldn’t be higher. They deserve the same dedication from us, because when it comes to someone’s health and life, a safe, functional and forward-thinking facility should be a given.
