Mark Patterson, AIA, ACHA, EDAC, LEED AP BD+C
SmithGroupJJR Board member Mark Patterson, Vice President, is the leader for the firm's Healthcare Studio in Phoenix, Arizona. Since joining the firm in 2004, he has led the studio to numerous successful completions that have brought forth innovative, award-winning designs for healing environments. Recently completed projects for Patterson include several for longtime client Banner Health, including the Banner Estrella Medical Center Expansion and a prototype Banner Health Center outpatient clinic. Among projects currently underway for Patterson are the $90 million Craig Rehabilitation Hospital Expansion in Englewood, Colorado, which will create the hospital's new spinal cord injury and traumatic brain injury rehabilitation center in 2015; and strategic planning for Capital Health in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada. Patterson is certified by the American College of Healthcare Architects, and is an EDAC and LEED-accredited professional. He graduated from the University of Illinois in Champaign-Urbana and is a past president of the Arizona and Central Arizona chapters of the American Institute of Architects.
Architecture was a natural fit for Mark. "I recall 'designing' houses when I was in third grade," he says. "Several people influenced my career choice, including my father-in-law who was a carpenter and my great-uncle who was an Amish clockmaker." His 33-year career has since taken a decidedly high-tech turn: Mark's studio at SmithGroupJJR specializes in providing innovative, data-driven design and successfully executed healing environments. "The integration of technology has been profound," he notes. "The way we deliver projects and the speed at which we are able to create project solutions has been revolutionized with mobile technologies and construction delivery innovations. Healthcare delivery itself continues to evolve, posing new opportunities to reinvent the spaces we design for healing. It's an exciting time of transformation."
