    The Golf Channel hit a hole in one with the revitalization of part of its Orlando campus. The channel turned to Walker Design LLC to create a high-functioning, multi-use space within a 1,200-square-foot area. The space holds conference and training areas plus a genius bar. It has fully integrated audio/visual technology, integrated writable surfaces for informal gatherings and multiple movable seating options that can house 150 occupants. The floor and ceiling patterns reflect lively, pixelated textures to contrast with and balance the static walls. Photography by Chad Baumer Photography.

HDR welcomes Cynthia Keeffe, AIA, ACHA, LEED BD+C, as a Regional Director for Health in the San Francisco architecture studio focusing on the west coast region. She brings more than 30 years of experience in architectural project management, planning and design and construction administration specializing in healthcare facility new construction and renovation projects.

Keeffe is passionate about engaging client and design teams to identify issues, establish operational, technical and functional priorities and finding solutions to complex problems.

“My satisfaction comes from facilitating discussions about strategic direction, planning and design to create great buildings that support care,” she says. “I believe that when we design great buildings, we have a positive impact on the care experience and that’s when the magic happens.”

Keeffe has led complex healthcare and research laboratory projects involving master planning, functional space programming, and design and construction administration. She has served as chairman of the Advanced Education Committee with the American College of Healthcare Architects (ACHA) and, for several years, developed and moderated the ACHA’s Master’s series. She is LEED BD+C accredited and is committed to incorporating sustainable practice into design solutions.

“Cynthia brings an added spark and a patient-centered vision to our already stellar HDR Health team,” says Hank Adams, global director, Health. “She is a nationally recognized industry thought leader and carries tremendous expertise in helping clients create valuable solutions to healthcare delivery.”

In her role as Regional Director for Health, Keeffe is building and sustaining growth through client relationships, with a focus on strategic ideas and initiatives for project pursuit, initiation and implementation. She supports the HDR Architecture health practice creating planning and design solutions that address an evolving healthcare landscape.

“I believe our role as healthcare architects is to be patient advocates and strategic partners with our clients,” she says. “One of the best things about HDR is the amazing depth of resources available to clients and project teams.”

“Cynthia is interested in moving data-driven design forward and finding new and innovative ways of supporting our clients’ evolving care delivery models,” says Abbie Clary, director, Health. “Her focus is on the people who will deliver and receive care in the facilities she works on, and that is extremely valuable in today’s healthcare market.”
