Through her 20 years as an architect she striven to focus on designing buildings from the inside out - with focus on co-creation and user involvement.

Presentation: Creating a healing environment for patients and staff

Speaker: Liesbeth van Heel, Senior Policy Advisor / PhD candidate - Erasmus MC

Liesbeth van Heel MSc (1964) trained in Facility Management and Business Economics, before entering Erasmus University Medical Center in Rotterdam, the Netherlands as a management trainee. In 1998 she became part of the team developing the new Erasmus MC hospital building. With experience as an university hospital real estate professional, well equipped to translate the organization’s vision into ambitions and requirements for ‘tomorrow’s building’, Liesbeth’s focus has shifted in 2014 towards the coordinating effort to align the various strategic programs within Erasmus MC toward a safe transition to the new hospital building in May 2018, with fitting work processes, logistics and IT-support. Her special attention remains with patient’s needs, creating a ‘healing environment’, using (inter)nationally acquired evidence and experience based design knowledge. She is actively seeking to share knowledge from the ‘once in a lifetime’ Erasmus MC project and aims to build a network for ‘better informed clients’ for Dutch hospital organizations. Since 2017 Liesbeth is also co-coordinating the scientific Program for Evaluating Our New Erasmus MC (PEONE), with focus on infection prevention, experience with wards with 100% single rooms and ownership of change and innovation. On this last subject, she will start a PhD candidacy later this year.
