In the ever-evolving landscape of healthcare design, creating spaces that prioritize patient comfort, efficiency, and safety is paramount. Wilmot Sanz, recently unveiled its latest triumph: a cutting-edge GI Endoscopy, Apheresis, and Bronchoscopy Suite that sets new standards in patient care and operational excellence.  

Working alongside stakeholders at Inova Health System and HITT Contracting, the team delivered a full floor fit out of the Professional Services Building to include two Bronchoscopy imaging suites and six Endoscopy suites with a fully equipped adjacent Scopes Processing clean room to streamline clinical workflows.
