We are thrilled to congratulate Yasmeen Barakat, a dedicated and innovative medical planner at the Los Angeles studio, for her recent recognition as one of Healthcare Design Magazine’s 2023 Rising Stars. This prestigious recognition acknowledges Yasmeen’s exceptional contributions to the field of healthcare design and her commitment to creating patient-centered, healing environments.
The magazine’s Rising Star program was launched in 2018 and recognizes the healthcare design industry’s “next great leaders.” According to the publication, individuals must have worked in healthcare design for fewer than 10 years and have a body of work over the past two years that collectively sets them apart from their peers.
“I am looking forward to continuously refining and expanding my skills, making a meaningful impact, and influencing the evolution of healthcare design,” Yasmeen says in response to this achievement. “An emphasis on creating patient-centered healing environments, exploring sustainable design practices, and continuing to make progress on diversity in the AEC profession are all crucial steps towards fostering innovation, creativity, and inclusivity in our work.”
