01  About Us

Whole Health

 

NBBJ developed a design framework for healthy, high-performing healthcare environments called “Whole Health.” It’s the notion that design can be a transformative tool to reshape how and where care is provided, creating a healthier, more productive and purposeful experience.

01  About Us

The Components
of Whole Health

 

Whole health is the perspective of how we approach the business of design of the healthcare industry. We achieve this by focusing on two areas: design for performance and
design for wellbeing.

 

Design for performance, which impacts an overall institution, includes strategies to adapt during uncertain economic cycles, flex in the midst of a pandemic and prepare for a changing
climate. Design for wellbeing, which touches on patients, staff and community, includes ideas to support a fulfilling work experience, encourage patient agency and destigmatize behavioral health.

01  About Us

Our Diversity
and Inclusion Plan

 

Our mission is to diversify the design profession because it is key to creating an equitable, just and inclusive world.


We also know that creative synergy happens best when people of diverse backgrounds and a culture of inclusivity meet. Inclusive design and the belief that all should be heard is a hallmark of our firm and a continued commitment.

 

Today, we’re focused on design justice, a subset of our overall commitment that challenges structural inequalities and uses design to sustain, heal and restore marginalized communities.


We are committed to specific steps that:


Create Belonging - Provide opportunities to increase representation at all levels and roles within our design practice.

 

Design for All, By All - Apply design justice principles to create equitable built environments and experiences.

 

Build Resilience - Prioritize outcomes that emphasize health, education, safety and community resilience.
