Shepley Bulfinch principal Jennifer Aliber, AIA, has been elected to the Council of Fellows of the American College of Healthcare Architects (ACHA). She received the honor in recognition of her leadership in developing and advancing a metrics-based approach to space programming and planning that has elevated the practice of healthcare architecture.
Today, at a time when healthcare costs are under unprecedented scrutiny, her national contributions to the development of accurate space planning metrics are paying off as an essential element in efficient capital project management. She has presented and written widely on the subject.
ACHA president Connie McFarland presented the FACHA medal to Jennifer in a convocation ceremony at the Healthcare Design ’14 conference in San Diego. Fellowship is the highest honor bestowed on a certificate holder by the ACHA, and Jennifer was the only individual to be so honored this year.
Jennifer joined Shepley Bulfinch in 1985 and was named a principal in 2002. As a healthcare planner, she has focused on programming and planning that improves the delivery of care through innovation. She is a leader of the firm’s healthcare practice and currently serves as chair of Shepley Bulfinch’s board of directors. She is a graduate of Amherst College (’80) and Princeton University (M.Arch. ’85).
