Oriol Health Care Selects Margulies Perruzzi Architects and Cutler Associates for New Medical Office Building in Holden, Massachusetts

March 6, 2012

BOSTON, March 6, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Margulies Perruzzi Architects, one of Boston’s most innovative architectural and interior design firms, and Cutler Associates, an East Coast integrated design and construction management firm, today announced that the firms have been selected to design and construct a new medical office building in Holden, Massachusetts for Oriol Health Care.

As owners of the former Holden District Hospital property, Oriol Health Care launched a long-term collaborative process with the Town of Holden to develop a healthcare campus on the hospital site. The addition of a patient care building to house cutting-edge medical care was deemed a perfect fit for the expansion. Margulies Perruzzi Architects (MPA) and Cutler were selected for design and construction management services for a new three-story 36,000 square foot medical office building at the entry to the Boyden Road campus. The building, which will house a family medical practice and other healthcare providers, will complement Oriol’s other medical arts buildings and a skilled nursing facility on the site.

“As healthcare design becomes more patient-centered with an ever-increasing focus on healthy outcomes, we are thrilled to be working with an innovator like Oriol Health Care,” said Garth Johnson, LEED AP, vice president of senior living and healthcare at Cutler Associates, Inc. “Cutler has enjoyed a long working relationship with the Oriol family, and we are thrilled to be a part of the design and construction team as this project continues to take shape.”

“Patients have become savvy consumers regarding their healthcare, and Oriol’s focus on patient concerns has been paramount in the design of this new building,” said Marc Margulies, AIA, LEED AP, principal at Margulies Perruzzi Architects. “Drawing on our prior experience working with Cutler, MPA is excited to partner again with Cutler on the clinical design of Oriol’s new patient care building.”
