Healthcare Design Honors The Year’s Top Projects, Individuals At Awards Ceremony

Nov 17, 2014

November 17, 2014 by HCD editors – Healthcare Design Magazine – At a special awards luncheon on Sunday at the 2014 Healthcare Design Conference in San Diego, Healthcare Design honored the winners from its various competitions: the Healthcare Design Showcase, Remodel/Renovation Competition, Landscape Architecture for Healthcare Communities, and The HCD 10.

“Over the course of each year, our awards programs provide an excellent opportunity for us to take the pulse of the industry, as we consider more than a hundred projects across the board and look for patterns that emerge,” said Kristin D. Zeit, editor-in-chief of Healthcare Design, to kick off the ceremony. “This year, in particular, our jurors noticed just how many former innovations—daylighting, access to nature, and the incorporation of art, for instance—have graduated to baseline standards for healthcare design. This is a good thing, of course, as design that promotes healing seems to really be taking root in the global conversation.”
