TWO ORLANDO FIRMS CREATE H20 HEALTHCARE ARCHITECTS
New company offers “fluid” approach to region’s complex design projects
ORLANDO, Fla. (October 10, 2012) – C.T. Hsu + Associates P.A. (CTH+A) and Fred M. Humphrey & Associates, Inc. (FMHA) – both Orlando-based companies – have entered into an agreement to form a new architectural firm to serve the region’s growing healthcare industry. H20 Healthcare Architects, LLC combines CTH+A’s knowledge of community needs and established reputation for planning and design with FMHA’s healthcare architectural design expertise to serve the needs of large, complex healthcare projects in Central Florida. The agreement includes establishing a new permanent healthcare architecture design studio for H20 in CTH+A’s office in downtown Orlando.
Metro Orlando is home to one of the most rapidly evolving life sciences clusters in the U.S., according to the Metro Orlando Economic Development Commission. “From Lake Nona’s rapidly growing ‘medical city’, including the UCF medical school, and the increasing healthcare needs of the aging baby boomer population, the region’s need for superlative design expertise in healthcare is greater than ever before,” said C.T. Hsu, FAIA, LEED AP, president of C.T. Hsu + Associates, P.A. “H2O integrates the strategic strengths and knowledge of both of our firms in a focused and deliberate manner that will add greater value to our clients,” added Fred Humphrey, AIA, president of FMHA.
