It’s once again time to recognize the past year’s most influential people in healthcare design. The HCD 10 will honor professionals across 10 categories of nominees, shining a spotlight on the broad spectrum of stars in our industry.

Which architect was the mastermind behind an innovative new project? What clinician shared valuable insight that achieved the ultimate care delivery environment? What researcher uncovered new information that will change how healthcare environments are delivered in the future?

Nominations may be made by industry professionals and students. We’re looking specifically for contributions made to the industry within the past 12 months (2017/2018), so please be specific in listing these accomplishments. We encourage you to nominate as many people as you like (feel free to nominate yourself!), but you must submit a separate form for each nomination. Please note that repeated nominations of the same individual will hold no more weight than single nominations.

All nominees for The HCD 10 should be individuals, except for Outstanding Organization, which recognizes firms or healthcare organizations that have made significant strides throughout the year in creating and designing built environments.

The nomination deadline has been extended to May 25. Submit nominations at the form found here:
