About

Since our founding as Wilson Johnson Associates in 1980, Pulse Design Group has worked with more than 50 healthcare systems on more than one thousand projects – with extensive experience in both new construction and rehabilitation of older facilities. We are a full-service architectural design firm with over 30 years of experience in healthcare architecture and a true passion for the healthcare community. Specializing in architecture, interior design and medical equipment planning, we work to develop a professional relationship with our clients; one capable of guiding them through every aspect of a project. This forward-thinking approach has positioned our firm for growth as the only firm in the Kansas City region focused solely on the healthcare industry.

Because healthcare is our sole focus – and our passion – Pulse Design Group has the capacity to work on the most challenging, complex projects in the healthcare industry. Our team’s collective experience allows us to understand the universal needs of healthcare facilities, while also appreciating and accommodating each healthcare system’s distinctive needs. From in-depth participatory planning to extensive on-site work with project partners, our time-tested process allows us to understand each client’s philosophy and the environment. As a result, we are able to develop design concepts that maximize efficiency while meeting market demands.

Pulse Design Group also has a proven track record of cultivating long-term partnerships with our clients. In fact, 85 percent of our work is repeat business. These ongoing customer relationships – some going back more than 20 years – reflect who we are and how we approach every project. The evolution of our brand reflects the firm’s energy and enthusiasm for the future. It clearly encompasses our range of expertise and the confidence in being the pulse of healthcare architecture.
