“A designer must understand the environment that healthcare providers live in. What you design has to be both cost-effective and on the cutting edge of innovation and creativity.”

About Bob

When Bob was 5 years old, his engineer father bought him his first drafting set and a subscription to Architectural Record. “I came home from little league and sat for hours building models of the houses I designed,” Bob explains. In college, he was drawn to healthcare architecture. “Meeting people’s needs – in a very direct and dramatic way – was one of the aspects that attracted me to healthcare design. I believe great design can make a significant difference in the lives of patients, families and staff.” Bob also teaches a healthcare architecture class at Georgia Tech. “I’m passionate about teaching and mentoring these students, with the intent of having a positive impact on them and the future of healthcare design,” he adds.  His career spans more than 39 years with experience in all phases of architectural practice from master planning and design through construction, on a full range of both private and government projects including ambulatory care centers, community hospitals, large complex teaching hospitals and research facilities.
