Our Team


Associate Partner, Healthcare Market Leader, Senior Healthcare Architect,

“The work we do helps caregivers be at their best—for their patients’ best.”

Bill Ledger is Design Collaborative’s Healthcare Market and Studio Leader. Ledger was one of the first architects in the state to be board-certified in healthcare architecture by the American College of Healthcare Architects (ACHA). He is a recognized thought leader in the field, participating regularly in national healthcare design forums, conferences and publishing opportunities.

Ledger thrives in the regulatory detail that’s present in the healthcare sector. His care-driven approach helps both patients and providers flourish. Guided by Bill and his keen interest in identifying root problems and planning for the long-term, DC’s Healthcare Studio applies deep technical understanding to each project. Bill excels on this team, leading with empathy, experience and vision.
