  • Newark, NJ (1888PressRelease) June 22, 2022 - The grand opening of Urban Health Planís Park Tree Community Health Center at 866 E Tremont Ave in the Bronx marks the seventh Federally-Qualified Health Center designed for Urban Health Plan (UHP) by the firm. UHP, one of the largest Federally-Qualified Health Centers in New York State, is a nationally acclaimed model of innovation in community health care and disease prevention. In this community with high rates of diabetes, hypertension and heart disease, the new 8,000+ SF Park Tree Extension Clinic offers residents medical services for all ages, including: family medicine, COVID vaccines, health education, onsite lab services, telehealth, and more.

    According to Principal Bob Ryan; ďWorking with the leadership at UHP to help pinpoint the objectives that support their clinical program, is always a rewarding experience that consistently inspires us to design spaces that match the high level of care aspirations that UHP provides to the community.Ē

    Earlier this year, DIGroup Architecture helped UHP break ground on a new 52,000 square foot health care facility at 1095 Southern Boulevard in the Bronx (NYC) they also designed.

    DIGroup Architecture is a certified Minority-owned, Disadvantaged, and Small Business Enterprise (MBE/DBE/SBE) specializing in architecture, planning, interior design and environmental graphics, signage and wayfinding services for Senior Living, Education, Healthcare and Civic clients. The company takes great pride in its ethnically and culturally diverse staff who are passionate about architecture.

    DIG originated as a consortium of several small architectural firms who formed an alliance to collaborate and compete for large projects issued by the NJ Schools Development Authority that revitalized the stateís most under-served public school districts. This collaboration became so successful at delivering many of the stateís most significant, community-centered design projects that the firms formally merged in 2006. The profound impact these projects had on the most basic human need of health and wellness, brought a whole new meaning and purpose to the firm. From that point forward, ďArchitecture for ChangeĒ became our story, design philosophy and commitment to clients to re-imagine structures and environments to unite people, enhance well-being and enrich communities.

    DIGís successes have not gone unnoticed; in 2022, the firm was an award winner for the ďTop Education ProjectĒ for their design of the UNITI Cultural Center at Stony Brook University located in Suffolk County, Long Island, NY by Long Island Business News in their prestigious 2022 Real Estate, Architecture & Engineering competition; in 2021, the company was selected as one of the 2021 Leaders in Real Estate, Construction, and Design in the Architecture category by NJBIZ, and was ranked among the top Minority Businesses and Architectural firms by both NJBIZ and Philadelphia Business Journal.
