About Shannon

Spending countless hours drawing as a young boy and a lot of time walking jobsites with his dad, a hospital HVAC contractor, architecture caught his attention at an early age. Later, after working in architecture for several years and receiving an MBA, Shannon felt a pull toward healthcare architecture. “I enjoy healthcare architecture because I want to create environments that shape better experiences for patients and staff, ultimately having a positive effect on outcomes,” Shannon explains. “I am committed to helping our clients realize their vision and believe that when you really listen and understand their needs, it results in better design solutions,” he added. With a focus on smart design, Shannon’s project approach provides innovative solutions that balance lean operations with cutting-edge healing environments. Using this philosophy, he has been an integral part of the design and planning of over 20 million square feet of healthcare projects around the globe during his 20 years of experience in healthcare planning.
