Partners and Members of The Center Named to the HCD 10

Every year, Healthcare Design recognizes the 10 most influential people in healthcare over the past year and announces the HCD 10.  This elite group of design and architecture professionals represents the most exciting, inspirational, and influential healthcare work in 10 different categories.

“Things are changing so fast in the healthcare arena, and it takes a dedicated team of facility managers, designers, construction experts, advocates, educators, and more to build the kind of healthcare facilities that will meet the needs and demands of today’s consumers and be flexible enough for the future,”­ says Kristin D. Zeit, editor-in-chief of Healthcare Design. “Those who excel in their roles are those who put the patient first and contribute innovative—yet human-centered—design ideas that push the entire industry forward.”

Congratulations to the CHD partners and members who are a part of this year’s HCD 10:

  • Facility manager: Mitch Goplen, Billings Clinic (Billings, Mont.) - a Pebble Partner
  • Rising star: David Ruthven, NXT Health (New York) – a CHD partner
