Building the Backbone of Atlanta’s Healthcare Industry

Uninterrupted Patient Care, Easy Access, Safety and Durability

Smooth and safe operations are critical in healthcare. With the requirements of medical buildings and hospitals becoming increasingly complex, healthcare clients need deep expertise to preserve the quality of their patient care during construction.

Uninterrupted services are essential to preserve a high standard of care. As the healthcare industry has evolved significantly in recent years, we have stayed on top of the latest trends to focus on the services that keep operations efficient and patients healthy. With more than a century of healthcare construction experience and 30 years of projects in Atlanta, we provide an unparalleled commitment to this city and the superior operations that have helped build its reputation as a center for national healthcare. As one of Atlanta’s most recognizable names in healthcare construction services, we provide unwavering leadership that has resulted in decades of award-winning work. From Emory to Grady and WellStar, we have helped build Atlanta’s national reputation for quality healthcare.

McCarthy EQUIP Medical Equipment Planning Services

Fewer Changes | Reduced Cost | Speed to Market

EQUIP exists to reinforce McCarthy’s mission to be the best builder in America by expanding beyond construction to provide fully coordinated equipment solutions that enhance project outcomes and ensure the success of our clients, ultimately transforming the overall process from painful to painless.

Far too many owners have a disappointing experience with medical equipment planning during their construction project. With equipment planners operating independently from design and construction teams, this approach regularly leads to unforeseen and costly impacts on the project’s building and equipment requirements. 

Because we are both builders and equipment experts, we believe in delivering a better approach to owners than the industry standard. 

As the largest healthcare builder in the country, McCarthy has grown an unsurpassed knowledge base, building thousands of significant healthcare facilities. Our focus on early and seamless integration of building construction and equipment coordination installation allows owners to experience fewer equipment-related project issues, better value and on-time project completion.
