SmithGroup Promotes Andrew Brumbach to Lead Boston Health Studio

Andrew Brumbach has been elevated to lead SmithGroup’s healthcare studio in its Boston, Massachusetts office. In this role, he will lead an expert team in the delivery of integrated strategic, planning and design solutions for health systems throughout the Northeast.

Brumbach began his architecture career at SmithGroup, and during his 12-year tenure has become a sought-after expert on issues of patient and staff safety in healthcare environments — in particular designing for infection control and prevention. As health systems globally grapple with the future of healthcare delivery following the COVID-19 pandemic, Brumbach’s leadership on these issues, in collaboration with the expertise of his colleagues in Boston, is guiding solutions to help systems evaluate interventions to improve pandemic resiliency.

Numerous health organizations have benefited from Brumbach’s medical planning and design background, including Newton-Wellesley Hospital, Signature Healthcare and others. He recently led a series of complex renovation projects for Brigham and Women’s Hospital, including its inpatient oncology units, its 66-bed neonatal intensive care unit and installation of North America’s first dedicated self-shielded neonatal MRI.

Brumbach is a registered architect in Massachusetts and has earned Evidence-Based Design Accreditation and Certification. He is active in the local healthcare design community, serving as the co-chair of the Healthcare Committee for the Boston Society of Architects and a leader in the Healthcare Associated Infection Organization.
