HEALTHCARE ENVIRONMENT AWARDS 2012 Healthcare Environment Awards Jason Freeland Shannon Kraus Robin Guenther Healthcare architects and designers, focused on designing with evidence, are creating spaces that serve patients and sta as well as the communities they are in. With that emphasis on designing for all scales across the continuum, nine projects are honored as recipients of the 2012 Healthcare Environment Awards, cosponsored by Contract magazine in association with The Center for Health Design, Healthcare Design 2012, and the Vendome Group. The award—recognizing excellence in healthcare facility design—honors projects this year in acute care, ambulatory care, conceptual, landscape, and student design categories. The distinguished jury of Jason Freeland, AIA, ACHA, vice president and director of healthcare design at Heery International; Robin Guenther, FAIA, principal at Perkins+Will and board member of The Center for Health Design; and Shannon Kraus, 60 AIA, ACHA, MBA, senior vice president and managing director at HKS Architects, selected the projects that will be honored at the Healthcare Design 2012 conference. The jury says, “Healthcare design is being elevated to a civic realm. As healthcare institutions regain their roles of civic importance, it is more about embracing the facilities themselves and creating civil responsibility to engage: There has to be reciprocity.” Contract Editor in Chief John Czarnecki and The Center for Health Design will present the awards in a ceremony at the Healthcare Design 2012 conference in Phoenix on Monday, November 5.
