The 2013 Healthcare Environment Award Winners

22 October, 2013


Well-designed interiors for healthcare have the potential to speed the healing process while creating a stronger sense of community for the populations they serve. Nine projects that demonstrate excellence in healthcare facility design are honored as recipients of the 2013 Healthcare Environment Awards, co-sponsored by Contract magazine, in association with The Center for Health Design, Healthcare Design 2013, and the Vendome Group. Projects are recognized in acute care, ambulatory care, health and fitness, conceptual, and student design categories.

Four jurors—Patrick Leahy, AIA, EDAC, director of architecture, healthcare & research at Burns & McDonnell; Joan Saba, AIA, FACHA, partner at NBBJ; Rebecca Kleinbaum Sanders, AIA, associate vice president at HGA Architects and Engineers; and Terri Zborowsky, Ph.D., EDAC, research chair at Nursing Institute for Healthcare Design, and research committee member at The Center for Health Design—selected the winning and honorable mention projects.

The jury was impressed with the selected projects for their incorporation of outdoor spaces, attention to human scale, and use of daylighting and materials that promote calm and healthy environments. In many of the winning projects, the jury also appreciated age-appropriate design responses fitting for each institution’s particular patient population. Contract Editor in Chief John Czarnecki and The Center for Health Design will present the awards in a ceremony at the Healthcare Design 2013 conference in Orlando on Monday, November 18.

The 2013 winners are:
