Principal, Health Practice Leader


For nearly 30 years, Rob has honed his expertise in the planning and design of health environments throughout NYC and the Eastern Seaboard. Recently, he has led many adaptive reuse and renovation projects, transforming storied buildings into healthcare destinations that increase access to care.

Rob has a passion for the details. He knows the ins and outs of what makes a hospital or a clinic the optimal care environment for patients and workers. He is certified by the American College of Healthcare Architects and is a member of the Facility Guidelines Institute (FGI) Health Guidelines Revisions Committee. He is passionate about the details because he knows they matter—healthcare spaces have a tremendous impact on our lives, and design is a significant part of that impact.
