Jill Bergman


Senior Health Strategist

Jill’s more than 30-year career is built in service to advancing healthcare design. She leads large teams and complex projects with empathy, always focused on helping clients fulfill their visions. Her project experience and knowledge cover many healthcare facility types and services, from academic medical campuses and outpatient clinics to acute care inpatient and specialty care facilities. 

As a senior health strategist in our San Francisco architecture studio, Jill focuses on facility data management. With healthcare facilities “swimming” in data, she is always looking for better ways to harness project data by managing facility and space information to help clients drive decisions, make positive changes and affect patient outcomes. 

Jill’s love for connecting with people and continually learning inspires her involvement with professional and community-focused organizations, often in leadership roles. She serves on the board of directors for the Association of Medical Facility Professionals NorCal Chapter, which she helped establish, and the AIA Academy of Architecture for Health as a co-chair lead for their Colleague 2 Colleague Mentoring Program. 

Committed to advancing gender and equity in the design profession, Jill has presented at the AIA Women’s Leadership Summit and the Equity by Design Conference. Her writing and illustrations are published in industry trade publications, including Medical Construction & Design and Behavioral Health Executive.
