Our History

125.12017 marks our 125th year of creating efficient, beautiful design. We are honored to celebrate our Quasquicentennial, and we look forward to continuing the betterment of healthcare!

In the course of 125 years in business, we’ve evolved from renowned general practice architects to a holistic design firm dedicated exclusively to healthcare strategy, operations, and facilities. Today, FreemanWhite’s forward-looking approach continues to identify progressive responses to our swiftly changing industry.

We have the experience to understand that healthcare is too complex to deliver premier results through part-time specialty, so we’ve developed “narrow but deep” expertise in the industry. Our integrated, multidisciplinary team delivers multifaceted insight for our clients’ complicated challenges. Applying business intelligence in healthcare, FreemanWhite Catalyst deploys sophisticated analytics to address pressing questions such as capital expenditure priorities, preparing our clients to thrive in the next decade and beyond.

As the industry moves into a new era, FreemanWhite takes the next step in our evolution by joining Haskell to form the nation’s first wholly integrated healthcare delivery firm. Our fully aligned approach to excellence and accountability delivers industry-leading intelligence and data-driven solutions across the full spectrum – from strategy to construction to post occupancy evaluation.

From the first model building codes to healthcare’s first truly integrated, single-source planning, design, and construction entity, FreemanWhite has been a leader in innovation for more than 120 years.
