Pat Malick

I am Array’s Practice Leader for Interior Design and a founding principal with over 20 years in healthcare design. I’m passionate about collaboration: with my fellow planners, designers and architects, our client leaders, clinicians and especially patient and family advisory groups. The energy and point of view each person brings to the conversation motivates me every day. I’m excited to be part of the movement bringing forth the most compelling evidence to make every space safe, welcoming and engaging.
