Our clients gain a TRUSTED PARTNER when they engage SYNERGIS - a partner with extensive experience in assessment of market feasibility, site selection and vertical construction, a partner that COLLABORATES with them in DATA-DRIVEN programming and PURPOSE-DRIVEN design processes, a partner that focuses on creating efficiency in clinical workflows through thoughtful spatial adjacencies, and a partner that ORCHESTRATES all of the professional and trade activities, MITIGATING the demands on client time and resources associated with real estate development projects, allowing clients to focus on PATIENT CARE.


The co-founders began their development careers in the retail sector completing hundreds of projects ranging from retail stores to restaurants and automotive service centers, totaling more than 2 million square feet, over $750 Million in market value, and spanning across the contiguous 48 states and Hawaii.

Mike and Erik recognized an emerging trend as retail, healthcare, and consumerism converged. They viewed the “retailization” of healthcare as an opportunity to capitalize on their extensive retail experience and apply their development expertise to the healthcare sector. Since that time, our team members have developed more than 100 healthcare projects including “smart-sized” hospitals, satellite emergency departments, and community hospitals, totaling more than 1.2 million square feet of space and over $1 Billion in market value.

Our depth and breadth of knowledge, experience, and success in both healthcare and retail development projects uniquely positions Synergis Development Partners to deliver the highest quality, most cost-effective real estate development solutions to its clients.
