SmithGroup has elevated experienced healthcare architect Andrew Brumbach to lead the healthcare studio in its Boston office. In this role, he will oversee the delivery of integrated strategic, planning and design solutions for health systems throughout the Northeast.
Brumbach began his architecture career at SmithGroup, and during his 12-year tenure has become a sought-after expert on issues of patient and staff safety in healthcare environments—in particular designing for infection control and prevention. As health systems globally grapple with the future of healthcare delivery following the COVID-19 pandemic, Brumbach’s leadership on these issues, in collaboration with the expertise of his colleagues in Boston, is guiding solutions to help systems evaluate interventions to improve pandemic resiliency.
Brumbach earned a Bachelor of Architecture from Syracuse University. He is a registered architect in Massachusetts and has earned Evidence-Based Design Accreditation and Certification (EDAC). Brumbach is active in the local healthcare design community, serving as the current co-chair of the Healthcare Committee for the Boston Society of Architects (BSA) and a leader in the Healthcare Associated Infection Organization (HAIO), a Boston-based collaborative seeking to minimize the spread of acquired infections through innovative design solutions.
