Seena Hassouna AIA, EDAC, LEED AP BD+C, Lean Green Belt - Healthcare

Associate Principal | Healthcare Planner

Seena brings a decade of healthcare design and planning experience, which he accumulated during the healthcare building boom in Southern California.
Having worked with a variety of clients, including private, nonprofit, public and faith-based, he has a keen understanding of the needs of various client types. His ability to work with stakeholders at all levels of a project, translate their needs and goals to a project team and, eventually, into a physical space, makes him an integral part of a project team. Although often tasked with the pragmatic role of planner, as a well-rounded architect, Seena also focuses on the intangible elements of design and space planning, which elevate a project from simply being a space or building, into a transformative piece of architecture.

With the goal of being a fit dad for his two young children, Seena begins his days exploring New York City with a brisk four-mile walk.


An emerging trend is to acquire, develop and open ambulatory care facilities as quickly as possible. Healthcare systems should pause to understand which considerations to focus on when looking for real estate properties or locations to accommodate the needs of healthcare and an ambulatory environment, as well as the challenges.

During this session, Seena Hassouna will review the determinations of site selection, and provide a checklist of aspects to look for in these facilities to successfully achieve a retail business model.
