About Roy

Roy has a distinctive respect for nature. Being outdoors has always been a freeing outlet for him, whether biking, skiing or playing beach volleyball. “Preserving our resources for future generations is important to me,” Roy said. “But, I didn’t think I could make much of an impact on the environment as an individual until I managed one of the nation’s first and largest LEED Gold-certified healthcare projects in 2002.” Today, he’s directing more than 1 million square feet of sustainable healthcare projects that are lowering operating costs, enhancing staff development and retention and improving patient outcomes. “Many people have a pre-conceived notion that being sustainable comes with a steep price tag. I believe we can design and build cost-saving healthcare facilities with limited upfront costs by thinking ahead and planning smart.”
