The AIA|LA Architecture in Healthcare Committee facilitates events related to healthcare facility planning, design and construction. One of the most active committees in the Los Angeles chapter, the highly attended monthly events focus on the future of healthcare design, project delivery improvements, innovative design, client/owner perspectives, and building tours.  Most events are eligible for AIA Health Safety and Welfare learning units.

The committee events are typically held the third Wednesday of each month, from 4:30pm-6:30pm.  Each events includes time to network with peers and colleagues.  The venue for each event varies and is typically hosted by the presenting firm or organization.

The committee is led by two volunteer co-chairs, who serve two year alternating terms.   Supporting the co-chairs is a steering committee comprised of past co-chairs, allied industry members, and healthcare architects.  The steering committee meets at quarterly intervals and spend their time discussing future topics. The steering committee also provides a network into the healthcare architecture community to maintain our active schedule of monthly events, and many offer or arrange tours, presentations, and hosting.


If you have any suggestions for future events or would like to be on the mailing list for the monthly events, please email the committee co-chairs and the AIA staff liaison.


The mission of the AIA|LA Architecture in Healthcare Committee:  Striving to educate and inspire the healthcare design and planning communities.

UC San Diego Hillcrest Redevelopment Phase One
The project team will share insight into the design and the role it plays in the overall Master Plan for the UCSD Hillcrest Campus, as well as how a common mission and values have factored into early successes and a solid foundation for the future as they embark on construction.
Cedars-Sinai Guerin Children’s – New Bed Unit Tour
With the invaluable input from nursing, child life, patient and family advisory, local artists, support staff, and hospital leadership, the project team was able to remain nimble and overcome many unforeseen challenges, paving the way to deliver the landmark facility of Cedars-Sinai Guerin Children’s.

Purposeful 2022
With the long-term goal of accelerating positive changes and better outcomes in health care environments, our 4th annual interactive symposium will seek more efficient ways of broadening healthcare’s reach to all segments of the population.
