A big congratulations to Blue Cottage of CannonDesign's Jann Gao, who was named a 2022 Healthcare Design Rising Star. The program celebrates the outstanding achievements of professionals who have worked in healthcare design for fewer than 10 years. Winners are those who have demonstrated a commitment to the industry and made meaningful contributions to the future of healthcare design.
Jann is a skilled and experienced strategy analyst, project manager and industrial engineer who focuses on healthcare design and operations. She is our Blue Cottage team's lead strategy and data analyst—the go-to person for complex projects large and small. She is constantly thinking beyond the data to see where disparate parts, if put together, create greater insights.
Here's a few excerpts from the colleagues who nominated her:
"Jann's collaborative, team-oriented approach fosters an environment in which every team member is expected to bring their very best, authentic self to project meetings every single day—and Jann leads by example because that is exactly what she always does."
"Jann combines her past experiences with project variables to come up with a unique solution that not only meets client expectations, but also improves healthcare delivery and in turn improves community health. She recognizes small details can uncover big insights that can make a project “nothing short of remarkable.” But Jann also knows that these insights don’t come without intense and symbiotic collaboration. Her project management skills recognize each individual brings their own expertise and experience to a project, and she understands how to utilize their skills in the most fulfilling and efficient ways."
