Director, Healthcare Interiors
Good design has the ability to transform lives – those who work, visit and are cared for in healthcare environments are at their most vulnerable and in the greatest need. That’s a responsibility that drives me and one I take very seriously.
With four decades of industry experience, Jocelyn Stroupe, Director of Healthcare Interiors, is a leading expert in the health market. Jocelyn thrives on uniting the disciplines of planning, programming, branding, and facility management with cohesive, comforting interior design. She is especially invested in understanding the unique needs of all users – patients, visitors, providers and staff – in their healthcare settings.
Jocelyn derives inspiration for spatial and interior design work from many typologies but finds various themes in nature particularly fascinating – patterns and color, relationships between humans and the natural world, the changing phases of plant life. These studies provide Jocelyn with keen insights about placemaking and the design needs of people in these living spaces. As a result, her interiors evoke an optimism that creates positive experiences for patients, family, and staff. Jocelyn’s colleagues and clients appreciate her approachable, collaborative and genuine approach – and her intuitive approach to creating healing environments.
Jocelyn is a frequent speaker and contributor to Healthcare Design and the Center for Health Design, among other outlets.
