HBS Acquires Medical Equipment Planning Specialist OneEQ
The acquisition advances HBS’s strategy to provide a full continuum of specialty services to support project delivery in an increasingly complex market
HBS has acquired One EQ, the technology, medical planning, and operational consulting subsidiary of global architecture firm CallisonRTKL. HBS is a nationally recognized, single-source consultancy offering a suite of solutions to help healthcare, science/technology, and higher education organizations bring new projects online.
The acquisition expands the continuum of services HBS offers across the building lifecycle, all of which can be bundled or applied individually. HBS is a platform investment of Latticework Capital Management, a Dallas-based private equity firm with over $335 million of assets under management. Terms of the deal are undisclosed.
“OneEQ is recognized as one of North America’s most experienced and innovative medical equipment planning experts,” says Jay Hornung ACHE, CHFM, President and CEO of HBS. “Their roster of blue-chip clients shapes the contours of the next generation of clinical care and medical research. This acquisition augments our medical equipment service line and expands our suite of solutions to include digital technology consulting to what has become an increasingly complex and tech-driven marketplace.”
With a legacy dating back three decades, OneEQ’s team of over 45 professionals, many of whom have clinical experience, brings long-standing relationships with some of the most recognized health, academic, and research institutions in North America.
“Our clients stand at the forefront of medicine, research, and clinical care. Technology drives almost everything they do. They demand new thinking as much as proven experience,” says Debbie Cameron RN, OneEQ senior vice president. “This move gives us the ability to strengthen our relationships with existing providers through more holistic solutions and the independence to work with a deeper, broader pool of professional services firms and architects. We are excited to join a multifaceted organization uniquely positioned in the market and look forward to providing additional value and greater breadth of solutions to our clients.”
Over the last three years, HBS has assembled a genuine powerhouse of specialist expertise, all focused on strengthening the operational efficiency and value of complex buildings. The firm’s vision is to serve as a single source—from planning and design, through activation and ongoing operations—for healthcare and technology-enabled organizations across North America.
“This deal marks our fourth acquisition in the last twelve months. The next few months will be focused on ensuring a seamless integration to expand the quality and breadth of our services,” says Hornung. “We know our clients are excited about what we are doing to bring them the latest thinking and expertise to advance their businesses and improve outcomes.”
From planning and design through activation and ongoing operations, HBS partners with clients to solve problems, remove inefficiencies, improve outcomes, and reduce costs so they can focus on their core missions. With over 100 employes and offices across the United States, HBS has grown a continuum of services across the building lifecycle, all of which can be bundled or applied individually.
