Amid the rolling hills and verdant landscape of The Biltmore Estate in Asheville, N.C., Healthcare Design held its fourth annual HCD Forum Sept. 4-6. Attendees took to the grounds to explore the estate and gardens, taste local wines and microbrews, and network with fellow high-level industry members and event sponsors.

Highlights of the three-day event included an icebreaker culinary challenge during which teams competed to create the best barbecue sauce; the annual HCD 10 awards dinner where winners of the professional recognition program were celebrated; and thought-provoking keynote presentations and deep-dive small group discussions that explored critical industry challenges and identified innovative solutions. You’ll find plenty of photos of these events and more in the slideshow above.

The 2019 event was made possible by sponsors AcornVac/ Whitehall Manufacturing, Carolina, KI, Kimball Health, Kwalu, Mannington, MedSpace, Mohawk Group, Paladin Healthcare, Porcelanosa, Shaw Contract, and Sunbrella.

The 2020 HCD Forum will be held in Santa Fe on Sept. 9-11. Watch for more details here and at
