St. Elizabeth Medical Center

Altus’ projects range in size from small clinics under renovation, to the largest and most sophisticated medical office buildings and hospitals. Altus architects and planners have worked with some of the nation’s most prestigious institutions such as Loyola University, Mayo Clinic, CHI Health, The University of Nebraska Medical Center, University of Colorado Health and many others.

Of course we are proud of our award-winning planning and design, but we’re motivated even more by the accolades we receive from our clients, project owners, engineering and construction partners and the patients we all serve.

Peterson AFB Dental Clinic

As a small business, Altus has completed hundreds of architectural plans and designs for government healthcare clients including Veteran’s Affairs, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, the Air Force Medical Readiness Agency, the U.S. Army Medical Command, the U.S. General Services Administration, the Defense Health Agency, the Air Force Civil Engineer Center, and many others.

Altus regularly joins healthcare engineering partners, including those with Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business designations, to complete federal healthcare projects with quality, accuracy and reliability in order to meet critical mission outcomes and ensure project success.

Altus Awards

Although 95% of Altus’ work is for healthcare clients, we occasionally accept corporate work that fits within our scope of services and existing architectural talent.

No matter the project, we never accept work where we aren’t 100% invested in producing a quality outcome for our clients and project owners.

What Altus Clients Say

I have worked with many local and national firms in my almost 25 year career in healthcare leadership and can assure you Altus ranks among the best in supporting our organization to achieve our design goals.

Ann Schumacher, COO (now, President, CHI Health Mercy), CHI Health Immanuel Medical Center

We have been pleased with Altus’ effort and professionalism with the projects completed at NHS. We would not hesitate to recommend them for prospective projects.

Patrick J. Wieczorek, Senior Facilities Analyst, Nebraska Medicine

Collaborative, attentive, and reliable are a few words I would use to describe Altus Architectural Studios and their services . . . if you want a trustworthy designer known for a commitment to excellence, I highly recommend Altus Architectural Studios.

Ryan T. Sawall, PE, McCarthy Building Companies, Inc.

I had the opportunity to work with Mr. Lamprecht during an extensive and prolonged planning phase in the build-out of the Loyal University Medical Center new Burn Center. Through many meetings and multiple changes in plans and hospital commitment, Loren was always a steadying and calming force…There were times when I was ready to give up and say it was never going to happen. However, Loren always seemed to be able to come up with a solution to meet our needs. The net effect of this is that we now have what I consider to be one of the finest, as well as, nicest Burn Centers in the country.

Richard L. Gamelli, MD, Burn Center Chief, Loyola University

Mr. Lamprecht has been very professional, patient and competent in the execution of his role and responsibility on this project. He has offered insightful recommendations, within the context of our desired outcome, based on his obvious knowledge and understanding of designing, building and operation a modern health care facility…I have visited completed projects, designed by Mr. Lamprecht, and reviewed other designs for health care facilities that he has prepared. I have been impressed by his attention to patient flow, work patters, functional elements and the pleasing environment created and considered in all of his projects.

Thomas J. Czaplijski, Administrator, Pitt County Memorial Hospital

We’re referring to this clinic as our “clinic of the future.” The clinic will have smaller waiting rooms that serve patients more quickly and efficiently; a pharmacy where patients can get medication at the same site it was prescribed; a multitude of primary care doctors, specialists, physical therapists, health coaches and outpatient service providers on site in one location; and an improved paperless records system.

Rick Rolston, former President and CEO, CHI Creighton University Clinic

Our experience with Altus was excellent. They have a teamwork philosophy that allowed us to have collaborative meetings with all the players…Altus was able to design an affordable and yet beautiful new wing as well as to take space that needed renovation and make it look brand new. In addition, they were excellent at anticipating potential code issues avoiding costly change orders.

Marcia Hendricks, CEO, Madison County Hospital

It is unusual when somebody delivers a project that exceeds expectations. This has been true of Altus architectural Studios. We had engaged one of the largest architectural firms in the region and had spent many hours reviewing design plans, options, and variations. Despite many hours of work, we still were not close to our design goals. We eventually made the decision to switch to Altus. The team from Altus quickly grasped the project’s needs, scope, and limitations, and was able to quickly and expeditiously move the project forward.

Ian D. Crabb, MD, Board Member, OrthoWest (formerly, Nebraska Orthopaedic Hospital)

Altus’ most noteworthy accomplishment has been the way their architects take time to sit individually with each department director—including staff—to ensure that the plans meet the needs of the future direction of the organization. Altus has exceeded our expectations.

Mark P. Lisa, FACHE, (former CEO), Thayer County Health Services

We recently completed the redesign of our Oncology Inpatient Floor with Altus. This project was on an expedited timeline; one year from start of design to department move-in. Altus rose to the challenge and delivered the design on time and within the budget allocated. The end users are extremely happy.

Jennie Bartholomew, Manager of Facilities Planning, Nebraska Medicine

Overall this A-E firm did a very thorough job adhering to the schedule and completing the EA within the time constraints mandated by the government.

Dan Plugge, Project Manager, CESWL-PM-S, USACE Little Rock District

Our new replacement hospital has been dubbed in media as a “medical masterpiece”. We chose project partners based on their area of specialty, level of experience, and upfront commitments, and were never disappointed. The proof is in our 144,000-square-foot licensed critical access hospital delivered four months ahead of schedule and under budget.

Thomas W. Sommers, former CEO, Beatrice Community Hospital and Health Center
