T. Christopher Cooper, RN, MHA, MIM



A seasoned clinician, healthcare executive and industrial engineer, Chris Cooper provides a unique perspective on how the interrelationship between operational, strategic and design initiatives can be a transformative tool for healthcare delivery. As a Principal and the Healthcare Advisory Services Market Leader, Chris leverages his advanced clinical and healthcare advisory skills and subject matter expertise in pediatrics, oncology, and nursing to support a wide variety of challenges facing CannonDesign’s clients around the globe. Chris regularly leads firm-wide education and thought leadership efforts, providing insight on the future of healthcare delivery.

Throughout my career I have had the opportunity to directly experience how both processes and the built environment impact both the effectiveness of my work as a clinician, as well as the experience I am able to provide the patients under my care. It is energizing to work side by side with our client partners as well as my CannonDesign peers to challenge the status quo and reach beyond best practice to design processes and complementary facilities positioned to evolve with the continued complexity of healthcare delivery.
