Paul Sawyers and Jane Ho from the architects, HKS, joined the discussion to describe some of the amazing healthcare projects they have been working on and their approach to creating healing environments for patients. They also introduced their work with Cadre and their Clinic 20XX paper on designing for an ever-changing present. Truly inspirational.
One of the highlights of the meeting was a team visit to UCLH’s Proton Beam Therapy unit – a ground-breaking project that we are very proud to be part of.
Reflecting on the events of this week Simon Kydd, Head of Healthcare for the UK and co-chair of our global healthcare group said:
“This was a fantastic opportunity to build and strengthen our healthcare network and increase our technical excellence in this sector”
It will be very exciting to see how the potential for successfully delivering change in healthcare can be realised by this unique group and to observe the implementation of their ideas on the future of healthcare in the next few years to come.
“It’s fascinating to see how the global healthcare landscape is changing and the similar pressures that affect us across the world. For me this meeting has endorsed our ongoing efforts to provide an innovative and transformative approach to our work.” Nolan Rome, WSP, Head of Healthcare USA and co-chair of our global healthcare group.
