Mr. Kouletsis will be discussing the Kaiser Permanente’s perspective on the design build process and the value it brings to projects.
John Kouletsis, AIA, EDAC oversees the planning and design of both clinical and non-clinical facilities at Kaiser Permanente.
During his 20-year tenure with Kaiser Permanente, John has developed a comprehensive set of facilities design standards and guidelines that continue to ensure Kaiser Permanente hospitals and medical office buildings across the country are built and maintained with a consistent level of quality, efficiency, and affordability. Created in collaboration with hundreds of frontline healthcare professionals, planners, architects, and others, these standards established Kaiser Permanente as one of the foremost proponents of evidence-based design, outcomes-based design, and safety-by-design.
John developed the first inpatient room templates for Kaiser Permanente and he managed the development of the “templated” hospital, a site-adapt inpatient design that allows Kaiser Permanente to reduce the time it takes to bring new hospitals on line while still allowing local project teams to adjust the design to accommodate local conditions. More recently, John was one of the jurors on Kaiser Permanente’s “Small Hospital, Big Idea” competition which paves the way for the next generation of community-based hospitals for Kaiser Permanente. John and his staff have combed through the more than 100 submittals for game-changing ideas for the design of future medical facilities.
John is an executive sponsor of the Sidney R. Garfield Health Care Innovation Center, a unique living laboratory where design ideas are tested and solutions are developed in a hands-on, mocked-up clinical environment.
His recent activities include developing energy and water-conservation policies for Kaiser Permanente. He has also collaborated with the U.S. Department of Veteran’s Affairs and the Department of Defense Military Health System on a series of initiatives, including BIM standards, post-occupancy evaluations, medical space and equipment planning, and design excellence for healthcare facilities. Growing out of this work and work that John is doing with the American Institute of Architects, he is proposing a new value proposition for planning and design consultants and how they might engage owners with respect to a changing world of healthcare delivery and design.
Before joining Kaiser Permanente, John worked for 15 years as an architect in architectural and engineering firms specializing in healthcare design.
John graduated from the University of Southern California and did post graduate research in the Department of Engineering at Kyoto University. He is a member of the American Institute of Architects, is the past president of the Board of Directors of the San Francisco chapter of the AIA, and is a member of the Facility Guidelines Institute Healthcare Guidelines Revision Committee. He was an invited member of theAIA America's Design and Health Initiative in both 2010 and 2011. John was the recipient of the Change Maker Award in 2011 presented by the Center for Health Design and was named as one of the eight most influential people in healthcare design in 2012. He is also a member of the Center for Health Design’s EDAC Advisory Council. He has spoken widely on design excellence, high-performance design, and sustainable design and operations.
