February 2020
In this podcast, Rebecca discusses the rise of a new and unique challenge in the design community, stemming from HGTV’s popular shows like Fixer Uppers. As Rebecca shares, “The Universities’ drop-out rates have increased in the design community in the United States at an alarming rate. Interior design students are leaving their design programs around their second year, stating this is not what design looks like on television.” This and more on the changing face of healthcare design from a 30-year healthcare design veteran. 

‘Show-Me State’ native Rebecca Donner made her way to Nashville to earn an interior design degree at O’More College of Design. After graduating and completing challenging internship work, she found her calling in commercial healthcare interior design work. In 1993 this led her to found an interior design firm that specializes in health care design. Inner Design Studio began with one client and one employee. Today the 12 person firm handles numerous projects a year. Nashville’s leading healthcare interior design firm, Inner Design Studio is a strong team of experienced designers who have completed more than 891 medical facilities throughout the country.

Rebecca has published articles in Healthcare Design Magazine, Medical Construction & Design Magazine, Floor Focus Magazine and Health Facilities Management Magazine.
