The 2024 Healthcare Design Forum offers high-level, multidisciplinary industry professionals an unparalleled opportunity to exchange ideas, engage in real problem-solving, and consider topics that are tangential—yet remarkably relevant—to healthcare work. The hallmark of HCD Forum is a manageable combination of small-group and whole-group educational and networking opportunities over food, drinks, and other activities designed to take full advantage of our beautiful, historic Savannah location. HCD Forum is also the setting for Healthcare Design magazine’s HCD 10 Awards dinner, honoring individuals across the spectrum of our industry for their contributions over the past year, along with one Organization of the Year winner.

Here’s what some of our past participants had to say about HCD Forum:

“The focus on real design innovation has been refreshing (and essential) to our field. The HCD Forum and its unique format proved to be fertile ground for investigating these topics with a talented group of national healthcare leaders. Even among competitors, the mutual respect on display and desire to advance the state of healthcare was inspiring.”

Anthony Treu, Principal, Skidmore, Owings & Merrill

“The HCD Forum was amazing: incredible setting and incredible opportunity to meet and get to really know colleagues who are at the top of our world of healthcare design. The smaller scale, in a mix of providers, architects, interior designers, engineers, builders, and quality vendors, led to a relaxed atmosphere and great conversations, both socially and in teaming exercises. Superb experience professionally and personally; don’t miss it!”

Karl R. Sonnenberg, Partner, ZGF Architects

“The venue, time, and topics were well distributed. The amount of time to build relationships as well as discuss live topics was strong. Personally, I felt there was the right ratio of sponsor-to-end user and design presence. It made the entire experience relevant to all while incorporating some great networking and a lot of fun.”
