Healthcare Architects

with Extensive Surgery Center and Medical Office Design Experience

CMArchitects was formed by an opportunity to work with HCA (Hospital Corporations of America) in 2005 and we opened our doors in 2006. Since that time we have worked with physicians, owners and facility operators in projects ranging from 4,000 square feet to 50,000 square feet.


Tom Carnell has unprecedented experience in medical and healthcare space design. Tom is renown for his skills of intricately weaving complex programs with operational efficiency. His experience includes clinical office design and surgery center design.


CMArchitects offers due diligence services for most all of your planning and design phases. Our experience also provides opportunities for creative “added value” design, that Tom always brings to the table.
