Our research projects, including the Pebble Project, Research Coalition, and Advisory Services, help industry leaders make key decisions when investing in facility design.


Our industry events, tools, training, and EDAC certification give healthcare and design professionals a deeper understanding of how to make healthcare facilities safer and more efficient for all.


With the goal of improving sustainability and safety in healthcare facilities, we push for changes in building codes and standards in addition to recognizing healthcare evidence-based facility design through several award programs.

The Center would like to thank our Thought Leaders for their contributions to our work:
