Corgan converted the 2nd floor nursing unit back to I-2 occupancy from I-3 occupancy. Speed-to-market was a priority during this project, which presented its challenges due to the many unknowns associated with renovations. An example of this was when a wall was opened to utilize an existing Won-Door and found a non-functioning motor. Due to the design-build nature of our relationship with the contractor, this needed to be quickly solved without delay to the schedule. Coordination between the City of Tempe and the Department of Health Services was also key in this renovation. A walk-through with the Department of Health Services was scheduled at about 80% completion in order to expedite the close-out process.


Life is precious.

To help people during the most stressful times of their lives is the most important job we can imagine. It’s why we do what we do. We are dedicated to improving health outcomes through better healthcare design. To us, that’s not just a job — it’s a calling.

The complex challenges of modern healthcare demand that places lean into the future. Design is the physical expression of intellectual rigor in the service of empathy. Every design decision must maximize performance, minimize risk, and enhance the experience of the caregiver, patient, and family. We are eager collaborators, who respect expertise and listen deeply to multiple viewpoints — there is no place for our own egos. We are driven to satisfy every client on their own terms. We are dedicated to finding new, better ways to promote healing, comfort, and hope.

Doing so, we have made an impact in the lives of over eight million patients. From major metropolitan AMCs to small suburban clinics, from obstetrics to hospice, Corgan creates elegant, forward-looking spaces that improve outcomes, deftly respond to periodic change, and elevate the experience of the user. Our people genuinely care about the lives of your people.

That, to us, is the most precious thing we can offer.
