HED Associate Principal and Healthcare Studio Leader Sharon Woodworth, FAIA, LEED AP BD+C, EDAC, ACHA, has been appointed to serve a three-year term, from 2019 through 2021, as a member of the American College of Healthcare Architects Board of Regents.
The ACHA was created in 1999 to offer board certification to licensed healthcare architects through an independent process involving a portfolio review, an assessment by peer architects and a rigorous examination. It is the first and only design specialty so recognized by the American Institute of Architects.
Woodworth joined the HED team in 2018 with over 11 million square feet of healthcare facility planning and design experience, spanning a wide range of operational and continuum-of-care issues from neonatology to senior living, and diverse cultural perspectives from the United Kingdom to Asia.
As one of 10 ACHA Board Regents, Woodworth brings experience from previous board positions and a passionate belief that all healthcare architects should be board certified. As a practicing healthcare architect, her designs recognize the value of research-based initiatives from EDAC and LEED certification to Pebble Partnerships and Magnet Recognition; as an assistant professor at the University of California at San Francisco, her graduate-level course on healthcare environments enables future healthcare executives to better understand the interplay between medicine and architecture.
