Brian Zabloudil Promoted to Health Principal in Omaha
Brian Zabloudil, AIA, NCARB, LEED AP BD+C, is the newest health principal for the Omaha office, moving from his previous position as a senior health planner and pediatric practice leader. In this new role, Zabloudil will focus on bringing new clients to HDR in the Great Plains region. He has been with HDR for 16 years.
Having grown up in Hastings, Nebraska and attended the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, Zabloudil has spent his entire career with HDR and says he is excited to grow the health program from HDR’s corporate headquarters. Zabloudil’s unique ability to speak to the integration of HDR’s multidisciplinary approach will be an asset to HDR's growth in Omaha and the West.
“I’ve worked with Brian for many years and am excited about this new opportunity for him and for all of us at HDR,” said Jim Henry, AIA, Director of Health, West Region. “He’ll bring his knowledge of hospital design and planning, along with his approach to problem solving, to clients every day. This new role allows him to move up in the process, identifying specific client needs and bringing in the matching HDR talent to solve those needs.”
Zabloudil is passionate about design, but his focus has been on designing exceptional human experiences through the clinical planning of children’s hospitals. During his 13 years as a designer with HDR, he has worked on the design and planning of projects with the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota; Sentara Health in Norfolk, Virginia; McGill University Health Centre in Montreal, Quebec; The Ottawa Hospital in Ottawa, Ontario; Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital in St. Petersburg, Florida; MD Anderson in Houston, Texas; Children’s National Medical Center in Washington, D.C.; and Lurie Children’s Hospital in Chicago, Illinois.
