Arlington-based Ascension Group Architects is merging with New York-based daSilva Architects and Boston-based MorrisSwitzer Environments for Health to become a single healthcare facility design firm, Environments for Health Architecture (E4H), the group announced Wednesday.
E4H will focus on architecture, interior design and planning of healthcare facilities. With the firms combined, E4H will have 130 healthcare architects and planners throughout the U.S. The leadership and staff of each office will remain the same, according to a news release.
“Healthcare providers and life sciences businesses have a unique set of needs. Balancing the delivery of care with business imperatives requires a deep understanding of this rapidly changing industry,” E4H partner Dan Morris said. “E4H now offers both a knowledge of the local healthcare market and access to an expanded talent and experience pool that will benefit our clients enormously.”
Together, the firms’ portfolio has more than 5,000 healthcare projects totaling more than $5 billion, all completed within the past 30 years.
Ascension Group Architects has worked on several projects in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, such as Baylor Surgicare at Oakmont and Oceans Behavioral Hospital, both located in Fort Worth. The group also built the Urology Associates of North Texas facility in Arlington. Ascension Group reported $14.3 million in revenues in 2015, according to the FWB Top 100 Private Company list.
