Healthcare Providers

The healthcare environment is a highly technical and specialized field. Our professional staff has extensive experience in providing ADA Implementation Plans for Hospitals and all healthcare related accessibility services. We work closely with healthcare DPOs, architects and builders in ensuring facility compliance with the ADA, and other related and applicable accessibility regulations. These may include state and local building codes, life-safety requirements, accreditation standards etc.

Healthcare DPOs, architects and builders must ensure that any construction, addition, or alteration to a healthcare facility is in compliance with all accessibility codes and guidelines as well as with all applicable health and safety requirements. This can appear to cause conflicts in the design of facilities that are both accessible and safe under the law. Reconciling these conflicts requires the sort of cross-pollinating experiences that a certified healthcare accessibility consultant is able to bring to a project.

We invite you to give us an opportunity to provide your DPO, COO and CFO with a presentation of our services, a sample work product and to answer any questions they might have. If you would like further information regarding our services or would like to find out how we can assist you please call Richard Londono Toll Free at 888-768-7788 ext 323 or email request to
