New York–based principal Robin Guenther has been named to Fast Company Magazine's 100 Most Creative People in Business ranking. The annual list of 100 important people looks to celebrate the individuals in business that “dare to think creatively.”
Guenther was recognized for her thought leadership and advocacy in sustainable healthcare design, including her work on New York’s new Discovery Health Center, the country’s first LEED-certified ambulatory healthcare facility. Guenther is a strong advocate for linking public health, regenerative design, and sustainability, and her built work has helped shape healthier, more welcoming facilities for nearly every major medical institution in New York, Lucile Packard Children's Hospital at Stanford, and others.
“It is a great honor to be recognized,” Guenther said. “My career and my life are dedicated to building a movement toward healthcare environments that support the health of patients, staffs, and communities. I believe in a healthcare industry that stands for prevention and health management as well as treating illness—my work is to support this radical transformation.”
