Cherie Dice Set to Lead HDR’s Health Practice in Denver
Cherie Dice, LEED AP, ID+C, WELL AP, NCIDQ, has been named health principal for HDR’s architecture practice in Denver, Colorado.
In this position, Dice will lead HDR’s health practice in the Colorado area, employing over two decades of experience in the architecture and design industry to deepen current relationships with our clients and forge new relationships within the healthcare industry. For the past three years, Dice has contributed to many HDR-designed healthcare projects through her role as senior interior designer, including Intermountain Spanish Fork Hospital and the University of New Mexico Hospital, among others.
“I’m looking forward to helping our healthcare clients think differently,” Dice said. “The future of healthcare will rely on the ability to integrate hospitals and related activities, infuse ecology and promote health in communities through health-oriented developments. Linking this type of development to mass transit and creating a walkable environment can enable a community to thrive.”
“Cherie is trusted and respected by her clients and her peers, and her promotion to health principal is representative of her personal commitment to the success of HDR and our commitment to her success in the Denver health market,” said Jim Thomson, Central Region director of health at HDR. “I know Cherie will build upon her innovative ideas, her experience and her relationships and grow our health practice in Colorado, Wyoming and the Rocky Mountain Area.”
Before joining HDR three years ago, Dice served as director of interior design for Colorado at TreanorHL and has several years of project management experience. She earned her bachelor’s degree in architecture and interior design at Louisiana State University.
“With my interior design background, my focus is with the person inside the facility, whether they visit, stay or work there,” Dice said. “How patients and their families are affected by the built environment should be top of mind for any designer in healthcare design.”
