Lisa Lipschutz

AIA, ACHA, EDAC, Lean Green Belt Principal; Practice Leader, Planning


Through her career dedicated to healthcare planning,  Lisa has developed a deep appreciation for and understanding of the built healthcare environment. As Array Practice Leader of Planning, Lisa leads a team of planners focused on the projects spanning the continuum of healthcare delivery sites and services. Lisa’s work is informed by regular interaction with clinicians, strategists, colleagues and family advisory representatives. Not only is she adept at analysis to determine the ideal departmental size and configuration to produce optimal flow of patients, materials and staff; her sensitivity to the quality of the healthcare experience allows her to incorporate healing-centered design strategies.

Lisa has embraced yoga as a means to focus on the present and make all moments count.  When not at work or on her mat she enjoys spending time in the garden, traveling and visiting with her adult children living in New York.
