At the 2017 Healthcare Facilities Forum this week, Jim Diaz of KMD Architects received the Lifetime Achievement Award for Healthcare Facility Design in recognition of his dedicated commitment to the built environment and significant contributions toward the design and development of healthcare facilities in California.
Pickett Design Associates joined the Grand Opening Celebration of the newly renovated UC Irvine Health H.H. Chao Comprehensive Digestive Disease Center (CDDC) at the UC Irvine Medical Center on Saturday, August 19th. Pickett Design Associates served as lead interior designer on all phases of work in this project.
The H.H. Chao Comprehensive Digestive Disease Center project includes a 24,000 square foot expansion of the Northside of the existing CDDC Building. The design successfully expresses our understanding of the importance of daylight and natural finishes in this new "first impression" entry space. Soothing colors, attention to detail, healing art and views to lush exterior landscaping also calms nerves and uplifts the patient's expectations for receiving compassionate care. Working with LBL Architects, Pickett Design Associates served as lead interior designer on all phases of work in this project.
The H.H. Chao Comprehensive Digestive Disease Center (CDDC), part of UC Irvine Health, is one of the few facilities in the nation to provide state-of-the-art care to patients with digestive diseases. This project serves the patient and a multidisciplinary team of clinical experts including gastroenterologists, surgeons, oncologists, pathologists, radiologists, dietitians, nurses, social workers and case manager.
