Designing the Future of Care
Given Design Group is transforming the way that healthcare and medical facilities are designed and developed.
Through our unparalleled experience in California HCAI regulations and hands-on approach, we deliver a seamless, efficient process – delivering impactful design solutions that improve the patient care experience.
How We Work
We streamline the HCAI architecture process to deliver high-quality, creative solutions for our clients in the healthcare sector.
We’re always on the lookout for fun, energetic people to join our team! We take pride in our work and are looking for skilled and talented architects, draftspersons, and administrators who feel the same way.
GDG is not only an architectural firm, but a trusted partner that looks after all aspects of our projects. Where design is key, there are many deliverables from compliance and coordination that need to be managed to ensure projects get completed timely and according to the design intent. GDG helps manage projects from conceptual design through completion by tracking all milestones and closing the loop on all coordinated efforts. As a facilities director it is a relief to be able to put trust in GDG and know that they have the hospital’s best interest in mind when pursuing our projects.
Redesigning a facility like Valley Health Center Morgan Hill is especially difficult during a pandemic. We needed to simultaneously get portions of the building operational to deliver on the immediate needs related to COVID-19, while fast-tracking the design, engineering, review, approval and contracting phases – often simultaneously! Supply chain issues made it difficult to obtain necessary materials, and our team of architects and engineers often had to work remotely and efficiently to meet an incredible timeline. The finished facility is truly the result of collaborative teamwork – we are pleased to revitalize this once-neglected building and turn it into a place that will benefit all local residents.
GDG is one of the best architectural firms I have worked with. Their team is always on the same page and always available when needed. GDG’s vast knowledge of HCAI and the way they navigate the HCAI process makes my life a lot easier as a project manager. I am very grateful to have GDG as a team member – they are always willing to go above and beyond for our organization.

While I was with OSHPD (currently HCAI) as one of the three Regional Supervisors of the LA Office for over 24 years (until my retirement in 2018), I had the pleasure of meeting and working with Jesse and his team. I highly recommend GDG as an architectural firm familiar with HCAI's processes and procedures. They are resourceful, friendly, and driven. Their creative solutions, collaborative approach, and commitment to excellence make them a great choice for any size project. GDG can be trusted to deliver exceptional results.
Professional, willing, timely, and considerate are just a few words that describe my working relationship with the Given Design Group. They consistently deliver on innovative ideas and great service.
Success requires a collaborative team on your project and “GDG” Given Design Group takes this approach in their work. Their staff effectively listens and executes all tasks to complete the design and administrative services. For more than seven (7) years we have used “GDG” on all levels of hospital construction, from equipment replacement, renovations throughout to Emergency Department addition, all took various elements of creative approach to complete the design within the budget and time frame necessary for a successful project. We currently activity use “GDG” and will keep on using their services.
I have had the pleasure of working on a number of projects with Given Design Group: Keck Blood Bank Expansion and Keck NPC-3 Seismic Upgrade to highlight a couple. Given Design Group OSHPD knowledge and relationships assisted in timely approvals on both projects. Jesse Given and his staff consistently make themselves available to answer questions, even when it is not directly related to their projects. The firm works closely with the owner to limit unforeseen changes. I would highly recommend the firm for your entire project and design needs.
