Noah Tolson

I felt very early that if I’m going to be an Architect, then I should be one that contributes to the well-being of our society. I am honored to be a graduate of Clemson University’s Master of Architecture for Health program where I received a fellowship from the American Hospital Association and American Institute of Architects to research Pediatric Oncology. I have since been fortunate to work with many extraordinary strategic thinkers and healthcare design mentors. I have dedicated my career to understanding the business of, and delivering high performance healthcare architecture.
