Two Promotions in HDR's Health Planning Group
Two outstanding individuals within HDR architecture’s health planning team have been promoted to leadership positions. Both are being recognized for their exceptional work as health planners, as well as being leaders within HDR.
David Redemske, RA, ASHE, CCHP – Chicago, IL
Dave is now a Health Planning Principal and has joined HDR’s principal leadership team. He is recognized as an expert in the planning and design of complex, state-of-the-art healthcare facilities, bringing transformative ideas to a variety of health planning and design projects.
He has focused his 27-year architectural career exclusively on healing environments and has become a nationally recognized expert in designing flexible environments that encourage collaboration, accommodate advanced technology, and support patient-centered care for positive outcomes. In addition to traditional healthcare projects, Dave has developed an expertise in the design of correctional health facilities. He is one of the few architects that are certified by the National Commission on Correctional Healthcare (NCCHC) as a Certified Correctional Health Professional.
"In the 20 years that Dave has been with HDR, he has had a considerable impact on our health practice. His unique set of health planning and design skills contributes to the knowledge engine that continues to reinforce us as a thought leader in our profession. Dave continually strives to learn more, develop new skills, and as our industry shifts and changes, he grows and adapts along with it. He is always honing his craft to ensure we’re the best design firm. Not only that, he shares his knowledge and expertise with others, helping to make HDR one of the best places to work within the industry.”
Jim Atkinson, Director, Health Planning
Dave has led complex planning projects for clients such as St. Anthony’s Hospital-Focal Point, Northwestern Medicine, the University of Chicago, and has also worked on large-scale projects for The Mayo Clinic, UTMB Jennie Sealy Replacement Hospital and the University of Colorado Hospital. His projects have received AIA Academy of Architecture for Health national awards.
Additionally, Dave has worked on numerous domestic projects, while also working with international clients, most recently for the Kuwait Correctional Facilities Complex and the Mackenzie-Vaughan Replacement Facility in Toronto.
Brian Zabloudil, AIA, LEED AP BD+C – Omaha, NE
Brian is joining the ranks as a Senior Health Planner. He connects with healthcare clients by combining the design-thinking mindset of an architect with the understanding of a healthcare planner. With more than 15 years of experience in healthcare design, Brian has become a unique hybrid of designer, project architect and healthcare planner.
At HDR, his specialty — and passion — is pediatric health, particularly planning for the needs of this special patient population and their caregivers. He currently serves as our Children’s Services Leader, integrating flexible, family-centered, planning solutions to support the continuum of care for patients.
“It’s been exciting to watch Brian emerge as a health planning leader in our health practice. He excels at leading the client and project teams toward innovative solutions that keep us at the forefront of our industry. As a senior health planner, we have high expectations of where Brian will lead our Children’s Services team and how he will continue to help us build the health practice.”
Brian has worked all over North America on healthcare projects from the islands of Hawaii to the provinces in Canada, the United States, and of course, back home in Omaha, Nebraska.
Award winning projects that Brian has collaborated on include: Children’s Hospitals and Clinics of Minnesota in St. Paul, MN; Bellevue Medical Center in Bellevue, NE; Community Hospital in McCook, NE; Holland Performing Arts Center in Omaha, NE; and Montreal Children’s Hospital in Montreal, Canada.
