Jeffrey Brand


Principal | Executive Director

“We wear the shoes of our buildings' users to understand what they truly need from a healthcare environment—how they want it to work for them.”

Driven by innovation and enhancing patient wellbeing, Jeff combines 25 years of experience designing complex hospitals and medical schools with a sensitive, thoughtful design approach. Whether it’s for a university master plan or hospital lobby, Jeff focuses simultaneously on patient comfort and dignity, clinician efficacy, and operational efficiencies. His technology-driven design solutions have resulted in new delivery models that have sped the shift from institutional inpatient care to accessible, personalized outpatient care. Understanding that wellness is reliant on environmental factors, Jeff designs all his projects with sustainable features.
