ACHA 2016 Annual Report


2016 ACHA President Mark A. Nichols, AIA, FACHA It is my pleasure to welcome you to the 2016 ACHA Annual Luncheon. Our organization continues to thrive through our emphasis on certification of architects in the specialty of healthcare design. Through our efforts to support our certification committee and exam committee to maintain our standards of certification, we strengthen our position and visibility as a thought leader within the healthcare community. Our Advanced Educational Network Committee has continued their focus on providing opportunities for all Certificants to provide ACHA with a database of white papers and presentation topics that can be made available to all those who wish to gain insight from us. Our Communication and Outreach Committee has developed a first class website to provide all our Certificants (and Clients) with timely information about our organization and trends in the healthcare design field. Moving forward, they will continue to encourage all of us to engage in dialogue through social media. Our Candidate program is proving to be an effective means to bring emerging healthcare design professionals into the College at an earlier time within their career. This is vital to the long-term viability and health of our organization. We celebrate the new Certificants to ACHA as part of our agenda today! Financially we are strong, and our Board of Regents continues to focus on efforts to manage our activities with a self-sustaining focus. All these efforts are made by you, our Certificants. If you feel there is a place for your service within one of our Committees, please contact us. Your experience in serving will undoubtedly prove to be rich in satisfaction for you, as well as support our great organization. We thank many of you who were responsible for the founding of ACHA, celebrate our new Certificants, and recognize the continued efforts of all of you who take part in providing healthcare design that promotes the well-being of all who provide care and those who benefit from their quality care.

ACHA 2016 Annual Report


Awards Channel The ACHA Awards Channel is responsible for the three awards that recognize and celebrate excellence in healthcare architecture: Fellowship in the ACHA, the Legacy Project Award and the Lifetime Achievement Award. Fellowship in the ACHA is awarded to an ACHA certificant whose career reflects exceptional competence and design excellence in the healthcare architecture specialty, resulting in a demonstrable and significant influence on the profession. It is awarded to a select few who meet the high standard established by the FACHA jury during its annual review of submissions from those seeking elevation to Fellow. The certificant seeking elevation to the Council of Fellows prepares the package of supporting materials that will be reviewed by the FACHA jury. Since the founding of the College, 64 individuals have been designated FACHA; 49 of those are also designated FAIA. The Legacy Project Award, first given in 2014, is given to a healthcare project at least 15 years old that has had a lasting and important influence on the design of healthcare facilities throughout the United States, and even beyond. Projects typically represent a combination of several things: a facility design capable of adjusting to the changing physical demands of healthcare environments over time, a leadership culture that embraced changes in healthcare technology and care models, and successful innovation on such a scale that the project became influential over other important healthcare projects as it matured and evolved. Projects are nominated for the Legacy Project Award using a comprehensive package of detailed supporting materials prepared by an ACHA certificant connected to the project. The award is announced for the first time publically at the ASHE PDC event in the spring of each year, but because the protracted award cycle of jury selection, solicitation of projects, material preparation, site visits, jury deliberation, award ceremony scripting, etc., the award cycle begins in the fall each year, roughly 15-18 months in advance of the announcement. Work is currently underway for the 2017 Legacy Project Award. The Lifetime Achievement Award is given by the former Presidents of the ACHA to an individual whose career as a whole has demonstrated both extraordinary achievement and far-reaching influence on the profession. It can be given to anyone; the recipient does not have to be an ACHA certificant. The nature of their influence on the healthcare architecture profession can vary, including design excellence, service to the profession and to the College, or even publication success on a variety of scales. Individuals must be nominated and a package of supporting information must be prepared for review by the former Presidents of the ACHA.

ACHA 2016 Annual Report


Development Committee ACHA is fortunate to have partners that invest in our activities and efforts to provide education and leadership opportunities for our certificate holders. These partnerships have been developed and cultivated over many years with significant investment in our relationships. Many partners are repeat sponsors of annual events like the Summer Leadership Summit and annual lunches. One change we are experiencing is the shift to more targeted funding and the validation of the value our partners receive with that funding. ACHA is committed to our partners and developing ongoing mutually beneficial value for their investments. ACHA continues to provide a great opportunity in which our partners can wisely invest their sponsorship funds.

Examination Committee The Examination Committee assists in the development of the ACHA examination to ensure that the examination is professionally sound and legally defensible. The committee oversees that all examination questions refer to the detailed content outline and can be referenced appropriately. The committee meets regularly to write new examination questions and review the current examination to ensure accurateness.

Committee Activities For the second year, the 2016 exam has utilized a new cut score (passing score) process that allows for a statistical comparison of first-time candidate performance, additional review of questions, as well as determination of the cut score based on the most appropriate criteria. In 2016, there were 43 exam takers and 31 passed the exam. In addition, the Committee updated the Practice Examination which is available to candidates online in preparation for the ACHA certification examination.

ACHA 2016 Annual Report


2016 ACHA Lifetime Achievement Award James R. Diaz, FAIA, FACHA Kaplan McLaughlin Diaz San Francisco, CA James R. Diaz earned his Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering with Honors from Princeton University in 1961 and his Master of Architecture with AIA-Medal from Harvard Graduate School of Design in 1965. Immediately upon completing his Master of Architecture studies, Jim began his career as a healthcare architect while on active military duty in Washington D.C. After a one-year residence in Houston, he joined the San Francisco firm Kaplan McLaughlin in 1968. During his 48 years with the firm, his contributions as a principal and owner since 1977 in planning and design helped bring Kaplan McLaughlin Diaz (KMD) Architects to international prominence for innovation and design excellence. Jim has been generous with his time and long taken leadership positions in professional associations, including ACHA, as this year’s chairman of the Council of Fellows, and the AIA Academy of Architecture for Health. Early in his career he spearheaded the move to create the “Open AIA Committee Structure” that we enjoy today. He has ably represented the AIA internationally for many years. He is invited to speak and participate in symposia in many international venues to present his long and varied experience in healthcare design research, innovation and design excellence. At a local and state level in California, he is a leader within Spanish and Hispanic communities and has been honored for his contributions by the Government of Spain. His outside activities and professional contributions have also made him an effective spokesperson for the AIA in Spanish-speaking associations of architects and communities in Latin America and Spain. He and his wife have instilled in their children a love of architecture and things Spanish. He is extremely proud that his daughter Lari Maria Diaz is following in his footsteps as a well-established healthcare architect.

2016 Class of Fellows Philip LiBassi, FAIA, FACHA Westlake, Reed, Leskosky Cleveland, Ohio Philip LiBassi advances practice management and design excellence through a collaborative, integrated design process resulting in measurable outcomes and national, awardwinning architecture. He impacts the profession and multiple stakeholders nationally through his broad-based outreach. To address the complex challenges that face both the practice of architecture and the management of a design studio, Phil embraced and honed a process he refers to as the ‘Integrated Design Process.’ This five step process is based on his central belief that excellence in award-winning architecture requires the participation of broad-based teams in a collaborative and consistent process acknowledging that many contribute both to the success of a practice and to projects. His leadership and process have resulted in award-winning models in design and project delivery, and the development of a national practice. He generously shares his process and substantive lessons nationally through his publications, lectures, mentorship, teaching and involvement in AIA components and practice groups. Applying his integrated design process, Phil is instrumental in the organizational and operational procedures enabling the national growth and integrated design platform of Westlake Reed Leskosky, recognized as the No.1 Firm in the country in AIA’s Architect magazine’s 2014 Top 50. As Principal and Chief of Operations, Phil has steered the firm over the past 25 years from a traditional, single discipline, single office architectural practice to a vertically integrated, nontraditional practice model with 6 offices across the country, 15 disciplines, and international projects. Phil has been an ACHA certificate holder since 2003.


ACHA 2016 Annual Report


2016 Class of Fellows Gary Owens, FAIA, FACHA FKP Architects Houston, Texas Gary Owens’ work elevates the healthcare experience through facilities that play a vital role in better medical treatment, improve safety, and streamline service delivery while shifting hospitals’ focus to healing, respite and wellness. Gary’s work as Senior Principal for FKP encompasses award-winning and precedent setting hospitals, cancer treatment centers and intensive care units, as well as ambulatory care facilities, and increasingly, children’s hospitals. Working from Houston, home of the renowned Texas Medical Center, his influence has a national and international reach via projects in 12 states and in China. Gary employs Evidence Based Design (EBD) to measurably improve patient wellbeing and safety, as well as staff efficiency and safety through planning, programming and design. His solutions merge the caregiver with the patient and provide therapeutic spaces to aid in healing, flexible spaces that are maximally adaptable to accommodate evolving healthcare models, and embody the aspirations of stakeholders (doctors, nurses, administrators, patients, and families) in the design process. Gary is a pioneer in the practice of healthcare architecture; he is an advocate of patient safety at the forefront of designing “Safe Hospitals,” which incorporate features identified by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) to reduce injury, medical errors, or infections while improving care. Gary’s projects have received more than two dozen local, regional and national awards, including three Beacon Awards from the American Association of Critical Care Nurses. Gary has been an ACHA certificate holder since 1998.
