As an architect and healthcare planner, Christina Grimes has worked across the healthcare spectrum to develop exemplary health facilities by integrating topics such as evidence-based design, technology, sustainability, and long-term flexibility. She has led the planning for many of the firm’s most significant healthcare projects, including Tower Health, Penn Medicine, Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, Chester County Hospital and Cooper University Hospital. Christina combines a design background with the needs of clinicians to build on the context of an institution and its mission, and she is adept at leading user group meetings to explore and balance priorities for patients, staff, and family. In addition, she speaks internationally on her work and research, with a particular focus on post-occupancy evaluations to test the results of the built environment. In 2017, she received the Healthcare Design Magazine’s HCD10 Team MVP Award. Christina earned a Bachelor of Arts in Architecture from Washington University and a Master of Architecture from the University of Pennsylvania.
