Promoting Patient and Practitioner Health

Our evidence-based design approach, including partnerships with organizations like Planetree, had led to a growing awareness of the link between design and well-being. In this article from Medical Construction & Design, Lead Designer Tushar Gupta and Research Director Laurie Waggener provide snapshots of some recent projects and features that address these issues.

Leadership Transition

David H Watkins and Charles Griffin

David Watkins, FAIA, retired from Architecture on June 30. Charles Griffin, FAIA, FACHA, is the new Healthcare Sector Leader for EYP.

Thirty-eight years ago, Watkins founded a firm that became WHR Architects and, most recently part of the Healthcare Sector of EYP. In merging with EYP and through its recent acquisition of Stanley Beaman & Sears, we found like-minded partners who share our values, and a powerful platform for serving our Clients. Watkins will continue his role as Director on the EYP Board; however, his role as Healthcare Sector Leader will be filled by Charles Griffin, FAIA, FACHA, long-time Principal and Studio Leader in WHR and EYP. Griffin is an acknowledged national leader in Healthcare Design, and has been responsible for many of our largest Healthcare projects throughout the country. His nearly three decades of service to the firm will ensure continuity while establishing a new generation of leadership.

A New Kind of Hospital

User involvement is critical in medical planning but can also be challenging. We must make choices to find solutions. After discussion, there comes a point where you must decide what you believe is best for future patients and staff.

In its latest blog post, Region Hovedstaden focuses on the collaborative planning process for the new Bispebjerg Hospital. Engaging healthcare professionals in design charrettes maximizes functional efficiencies among clinical specialties to better meet patient needs.

Architecture focused on patient care reminds us that every design and client interaction should be done with respect for the people we represent, empathy for the lives we touch, stewardship for our natural resources, and concern for the communities we serve.
