“Buildings can have a profound effect on people. As architects who design healthcare settings, we have the unique opportunity to create places that contribute to the healing process.”
While an undergraduate, Jason participated in a healthcare design studio. His mission was to design a children’s hospital in Chicago. After meeting with the client and hearing stories from the families, he was hooked on healthcare design. “I truly believe that design makes a difference,” declared Jason, an 20-year veteran of the profession. “Through evidence-informed design, we can prove it.” According to Jason, access to daylighting and views to nature; lighting, sound and temperature control; and integrating families into the continuum of care have proven positive in helping patients heal. He also believes that humanity connects us more than it divides us. “Because I work internationally, people frequently ask me, ‘What are the differences between the U.S. and other countries?’” I tell them, “All of us have the need to be healthy and function at a high level on a physical, emotional and spiritual level. Healthcare design has a tremendous impact on every person in the world.”
