Healthcare Design Work
My favorite projects are those where needs conflict. How do you balance security with privacy in a prison hospital? Or, insure a safe â€“ but also homelike â€“ environment in a group home for severely disabled adults?Â I believe that when you can talk and learn and poke and probe you can create projects that are a catalyst for change.
With more than 20 years of consulting experience, Ms. Dâ€™Agostino has worked with a full range of healthcare institutions from small rural hospitals to major medical centers. Her expertise includes facilities master planning, space planning and space programming.Â Ms. Dâ€™Agostino has planned many unique health care facilities such as a hospital for AIDS infected children and a maximum security prison hospital.Â She recently led the planning effort on the Rockland Childrenâ€™s Psychiatric Center in New York and the flagship Leon Medical Center in Miami.Â In all projects, her goal is to create a built environment which fosters the highest quality of care.
