We Understand Provider Needs
We work with healthcare providers, builders and designers to create reliable, energy-efficient facilities that safeguard their patient’s health and comfort while simultaneously reducing operating costs.
Flexible Designs for an Ever-Changing Industry
Our healthcare designers have decades of invaluable experience and they have witnessed first-hand how rapidly things can change in the healthcare sector. Our designs take this into account, and they offer flexibility to accommodate future expansion for your facility. Our teams employ modular design principles that allow our clients to adapt to the ever-quickening pace of change in the healthcare landscape.

The complexity and uncertainty that comes with planning a new or replacement healthcare facility can be truly daunting. But our healthcare team understands every phase of the master planning process, and they will thoroughly evaluate your facility, goals and business to create an ideal master plan that fits your needs.
Mark Ridley-Thomas, Behavioral Health Center
A former hospital building is repurposed for community mental health treatment
Los Angeles, CA
The newly renamed Mark Ridley-Thomas Behavioral Health Center (formerly named Martin Luther King, Jr Behavioral Health Center) project is an adaptive repurposing of the former MLK hospital building. The 5-story, 505,000 SF building was demolished to the structural members and floors, then rebuilt with new MEPT services and distribution systems with supply service points of connection in the existing campus central utility plant. The renovations provide mental health services, including urgent care, outpatient, psychiatric health, substance abuse, and rehabilitation. The design-build team is led by HOK and Bernards in partnership with Los Angeles County Public Works.
P2S provided mechanical, electrical, plumbing, low voltage, and lighting design services for the adaptive re-use of the 500,000 square foot facility with all new central utility plant systems integrated into the building. The utility systems included a new highly efficient water-cooled chilled water plant, heating and domestic hot water condensing boilers, fan array air handling systems, emergency generator system, fiber and copper utility services and all the utility distribution through the facility. P2S also provided support for construction and LEED Gold application for the project. This $223 million, design-build project was substantially completed in October 2021.View More Healthcare Projects
