NK provides this. Barry Mousa - Vice President, Support Services - Mountainside Hospital

NK recognizes that the involvement and collaboration among the clinical staff, and the administrative staff, always results in better design. They encourage and facilitate this discussion, and it's one of the key reasons I like to work with them. Tom Scott - Chief Operating Officer - Chilton Memorial Hospital

NK's flexibility and problem-solving ability results in solutions that do not impact the timing or budget of our projects. The thoroughness of their design documents and skill in navigating the State approval process is second to none.

Lee, PE - Former Director of Facilities - Rutgers, Newark

Mo - President and Chief Executive Officer - New York Community Hospital

Most important, they are easy to work with in terms of being open to ideas that are suggested.
