Activities

Alberto Salvatore is always working to share his thought leadership with individuals and organizations that are interested in maximizing their return on investment related to their facilities projects.

His thought leadership includes an effort to raise awareness of the critical importance of changing our process: from one that is traditional, linear and segmented, to one that is contemporary, interdisciplinary, and simultaneous. Changing our traditional process has proven to positively affect the outcomes for patients, family and staff.

Find below a partial list of activities, past and present that exemplify Salvatore Architectures' commitment to our clients and the industry as a whole.

Alberto Salvatore also presented an Educational Session at the 2012 Healthcare Design Conference in Arizona as part of a team including Jerry Smith and Naomi Sachs for the Environmental Standards Council.  The Council is an interdisciplinary group of national volunteers and an education and advocacy arm of the Center for Health Design.  The educational session was directly related to making a Case for “Access to Nature” to be included in the 2014 Guidelines for the Design and Construction of Hospitals and Outpatient Facilities.   This session reviewed the well-known restorative powers of nature and furthered that understanding with research findings presented by Naomi Sachs based on studies that support the physiological and neurological benefits from “Access to Nature”.  As a result of this work "Access to Nature" was included as the eight key element that is required to be addressed in the physical environment component of the Environment of Care in the 2014 guidelines.
