HDR's "Glocal" Healthcare Practice Featured in World Health Design Special Report

(July 18, 2014) – HDR's international healthcare practice is featured in a 14-page special report supplementing the July issue of World Health Design magazine.

Highlighted throughout the issue is HDR's "glocal" philosophy: a global perspective that keeps us linked to the latest technology, trends and information, with local offices with local talent to keep us connected to the real-time needs and concerns of clients, the nuances between global cultures, and the differences in healthcare systems and their facility needs. The special report is further distilled into three themes—context, community, and care—that guide the way we design healthcare buildings around the world.

The issue features insights from President Doug Wignall, Director of Global Development Roger Stewart, and Director of Healthcare Hank Adams. It also features case studies from a number of HDR projects, including the Samuel Simmonds Hospital in Barrow, Alaska, USA; the Prince Mohammed and King Faisal Medical Cities in Saudi Arabia; the Beijing International Medical Center in Beijing, China; the Chris O'Brien Lifehouse in Sydney, Australia; the Schwarzwald-Baar Klinikum in Villingen-Schwenningen, German; and the Humber River Hospital in Toronto, Canada.
