Hank Adams, AIA, Awarded ACHA Fellowship Status
Robert “Hank” Adams, AIA, EDAC, Global Director of Health for HDR, has attained Fellowship status from the American College of Healthcare Architects. Fellowship is granted to ACHA Board-certified architects specializing in healthcare who have shown distinction in fulfilling an area of expertise as determined by the College’s Council of Fellows. Adams was honored for advancing the standards of practice in healthcare architecture.
“During his 30 years in the healthcare field, Hank has been energized by helping clients adapt to the rapid evolution of modern medicine, economic shifts and health policy changes in order to realize a sustainable healthcare delivery system,” said Doug Wignall, FAIA, president of HDR’s architecture practice. “Achieving Fellowship status from the ACHA is a well-deserved recognition for someone who not only has a unique insight into the entire continuum of care, but who has worked so diligently to help our clients stay one step ahead of the changing paradigm that is 21st-century healthcare.”
Adams’s career in the healthcare field began as a healthcare architect, but he has also served as a healthcare planner, project manager and principal for dozens of healthcare projects ranging from complete replacement facilities to multi-phased master plan implementations. He was tapped to serve as HDR’s global director of health in 2012 and has been instrumental in guiding the firm’s efforts in advancing a human-centered approach to care delivery, elevating the importance of outcomes-based design and increasing collaboration for successful project delivery.
Adams joins the ranks of about 70 distinguished Fellows of the ACHA.
