Back to Our People

Carlos L. Amato, AIA, ACHA, LEED AP


I have a relatively short time to make a meaningful contribution to society. I feel a sense of urgency to do something meaningful–something I can be proud to show to my family and my most discerning friends. This drives me to work with clients to develop thoughtful solutions that positively impact health and wellness.

With over 25 years of experience in healthcare planning and design, Carlos Amato brings significant thought leadership around the future intersections between design, planning, and technology to his role as Los Angeles Health Practice Leader. His passion for advancing innovations in both design and care delivery is evidenced in his collaborations with leading healthcare institutions and in his mentorship of the next generation of designers through leading CannonDesign’s Healthcare Fellowship. A sought after speaker, Carlos has presented at clinical conferences including RSNA in Chicago and C.A.R.S. (Computer Assisted Radiology and Surgery International Congress) in Germany, Italy and Switzerland.
