Jacksonville, Fla.-based design-builder Haskell announced on Nov. 12 that it had completed its acquisition of FreemanWhite, a Charlotte, N.C.-based consulting and design firm that specializes in the healthcare sector.
In a prepared statement Haskell’s VP and Healthcare Division Leader Jim Eaton said this partnership’s goal is to “create a full service offering that will be an industry leader in providing innovative solutions through a highly integrated service model.”
FreemanWhite will retain its name and brand. The combination expands Haskell’s geographic presence by adding FreemanWhite’s offices in Chicago, Charlotte, Nashville, and San Diego. Before the acquisition, Haskell had offices in Jacksonville, Akron, Ohio, Atlanta, Dallas, Austin, Beloit, Wis., Columbus, Ohio, Livermore, Calif., and Mexico City.
Franklin Brooks, AIA, ACHA, CEO of FreemanWhite said the two companies’ “commitment to data and transparency” makes the combined entity uniquely qualified to provide clients with planning and construction knowledge.
FreemanWhite's President Mark Furgeson, AIA, ACHA, added that by taking “vast amounts of data” and putting it into “a relatively compact framework,” the combined company now has “the opportunity to impact clinical quality,” and allow clients to better measure outcomes before making decisions.
