COVID-19 Webinar Series: Voices of the Industry 
Three Dialogues Examining COVID-19 and the Built Environment

Dialogue #2: The healthcare industry and the built environment that supports it continues to be challenged in these unprecedented times and has seen the evolution of innovative care practices, solutions, and settings. As portions of the country have begun easing shut downs and others have not, a lot has been learned in a short amount of time. Join this panel of industry leaders for a dynamic and frank discussion about what we’ve seen and where we are headed, including:  

  • Highlights in lessons learned and sharing efforts.
  • Case study examples that are making a difference.
  • What new lessons/practices that we learned from COVID-19 will we move forward and should have been doing all along?
  • How are we making a difference together, and are there opportunities to expand the impact of these efforts?



Thanks to our thought leadership partner:


On Demand Dialogue in this Series, "Filling the Breach: Unprecedented Challenges, Rapid Inspiration and Innovations".

Upcoming Dialogue in this Series, "2020 and Beyond: Applying Lessons to the Next Generation Healthcare", July 23



Presenting Faculty



Amie Shao, Principal, MASS Design Group

Amie Shao is a Principal with MASS Design Group, where she oversees research focusing on health infrastructure planning, design, and evaluation. Blending human-centered design practices with evidence-based research, Amie has collaborated with Ariadne Labs and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation to investigate the Impact of Design on Clinical Care in Childbirth, coordinated the production of National Health Infrastructure Standards for the Liberian Ministry of Health, and developed infection control design resources for USAID. Her work is aimed at engaging and empowering stakeholders in the design process; supporting and substantiating the impact of design on health, social, and environmental outcomes; and translating research into guidelines that can be used to advocate for policy change. Over three weeks in April, Amie led a rapid response spatial study in partnership with The Mount Sinai Hospital in NYC and Ariadne Labs to investigate spatial interventions that can help mitigate COVID-19 infection risk to healthcare workers.

Thomas M. Jung, RA, Board of Directors, The Center for Health Design

Tom Jung has over 30 years in the healthcare design field, with a primary focus on regulatory compliance and coordination. Spending 24 years with the New York State Department of Health’s Certificate of Need Program, Tom directed the effort for 16 of those years while overseeing the review and approval of more than $2 billion dollars of new projects annually. He is a founding member of The Center for Health Design’s Environmental Standards Council, and attributes that first and ongoing experience as a major influence on the nature of his communication with the designers and providers seeking state licensure.

Tom has also been intimately involved with development of the Guidelines for Design and Construction of Health Care Facilities since 1997, including Facilities Guidelines Institute board membership between 2003 and 2014, and served as CEO of the Facility Guidelines Institute for one year, stepping down in February 2015. He presently consults with a select number of clients on a limited basis.
