HY Architects is one of the leading FQHC and Community Clinic design firms in California. We have designed large and small renovations, tenant improvements, additions and complete clinic replacement projects.

Our clinic projects include: primary care, dental, optical, behavioral health, and chemical drug rehabilitation. We work with our FQHC and Community clients to assist them in developing facility programs, writing grants for funding, developing budgets for fundraising and construction, understanding code requirements for clinic design and operation and designing facilities that meet their constituent based healthcare needs.

HY Architects has a solid understanding of all applicable codes, laws, and regulations specific to community clinic projects under the jurisdiction of HCAI, OSHPD 3, California Building Code Title 24, Local Building, Planning, Fire Departments, as well as health care licensing agencies such as Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations (JCAHO) and Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS).

Our design philosophy is focused on the empowerment of patients and families through the exchange of information and encourage healing partnerships with caregivers by integrating optimal medical therapies and incorporating art and nature into the healing environment.
