Erin Schmidt



From a project’s initial concept Erin works to incorporate elements inspired by nature to promote wellbeing, relaxation, and patient empowerment as they move through healthcare spaces. Understanding her clients’ mission and goals, she works to place the right design element at the right spot to make a powerful impact. Erin works closely with leading healthcare institutions to help them understand how people move through their facilities to ensure the journey between different spaces is as positive and supportive as the destination. Her most recent projects include work on Cincinnati Children’s Critical Care Building Emergency Department, Cincinnati Children’s Perioperative Masterplan and Renovation, and the Norton Healthcare Perinatal Institute. Outside of work, Erin is an urban hiker at heart but loves relaxing on camping trips with family and friends.
