An Ongoing Collaborative Alliance

The four organizations below are allied to advance healthcare architecture.  Each organization's leaders have committed to search out collaboration where it is beneficial and to improve our collective efficiency by clarifying the roles of each and avoiding duplication of services.  The AIA Academy of Architecture for Health (AAH) was created in 1946, and each of the other three organizations initially were created by members of AAH to advance specific aspects of the profession.  Each remain fully independent, but meet regularly to continue to enrich this important alliance.  We urge you to visit each organization's website, to learn more.
