Arthur Brito, EDAC, LEED AP BD+C, DGNB Auditor
Miami Healthcare Practice Leader

“Healthcare strategic management is challenged to respond to the fast pace of health tech trends and pressure for health reform, so I approach my projects with a very collaborative and purpose-driven attitude.”


About Arthur

Born into a family of physicians, Arthur spent time in his youth at his father’s small hospital in Sao Paulo, Brazil. “It seemed only natural that my architecture career would focus on healthcare buildings. I was drawn to understanding how the hospital functioned, not the anxious or stressful environment that the medical profession can be.  How the physical spaces were organized, as well as the operational aspects, were intriguing to me,” says Arthur. The connection between facilities and operations lead him to pursue an education in architecture and healthcare administration, and eventually into leadership positions in the Latin American healthcare planning and design circles. For the past 15 years, he’s served as a liaison between U.S. healthcare planning and local regulations and their cultures. As Health Practice Leader for HKS Miami, Arthur blends his international expertise and links healthcare strategies and operations to solutions-based health facilities and outcomes.
