The Center for Health Design

Headquarters: Concord CA

The Center for Health Design (CHD) was formed in 1993 by a small cadre of pioneering healthcare and design professionals committed to advancing a singular idea – that design could be used to improve patient outcomes in healthcare environments. Their passion proved contagious. Today, CHD is a far-reaching, international community leading the effort to improve the quality of healthcare facilities worldwide, as well as environments for healthy aging. CHD's mission is to transform healthcare environments for a healthier, safer world through design research, education, and advocacy.
