HGA, an interdisciplinary design firm with offices nationwide, provides architectural design and all disciplines of engineering. In Sacramento and throughout Northern California, the firm offers architecture, structural engineering, mechanical engineering, plumbing engineering and interior design.
HGA’s Sacramento team runs a studio dedicated to the health care sector that is committed to transforming environments of health, including hospitals, clinics and medical office buildings. The firm’s approach to client service is unique and opens the door to innovation in design.
Denis Stroup, principal and practice group leader, explains, “We have long-standing relationships with existing clients that seek us out for repeat business. However, in our mission to transform environments of health, we strive to listen carefully to a client’s request and use the depth of research and benchmarking we have from working with clients nationwide to respectfully challenge the status quo.”
“We don’t pursue projects, we pursue relationships, and out of relationships come projects and repeat business.”

HGA’s differentiator in the marketplace is that research-driven perspective in their approach to design and construction. The firm’s Design Insight Group specifically assesses post-occupancy evaluations and utilizes what they have learned from previous projects in planning new projects. “We’ve developed this process of continuous learning, refinement and improvement, and we build upon that project by project,” says Greg Osecheck, principal.
HGA’s regional health care projects include the recently completed emergency/ICU expansion at Sutter Roseville, the NICU renovation for Mercy San Juan in Carmichael, the Fowler Medical Plaza in the town of Fowler, and currently under construction, the Ernest E. Tschannen Eye Institute at the UC Davis Medical Center in Sacramento.
“Within the Sacramento region, we will continue to serve current clients and expand relationships to clients we haven’t yet worked with,” Stroup says. “We don’t pursue projects, we pursue relationships, and out of relationships come projects and repeat business.” Osecheck adds, “Ultimately, our goal is to help our clients provide the best health care they can for our community.”
