Healthcare Design executive editor Anne DiNardo describes Monzu’s unique impact on underserved communities in the magazine’s September issue: “By bringing the best ideas in modern healthcare design to critical access hospitals, Monzu is ensuring that small rural communities have access to care environments that are of the same quality as those in even the largest of cities.”

Monzu describes his mission-driven approach: “Every architect wants to leave behind a legacy of design excellence, but when we design healing environments, we’re also bringing hope and possibility into the lives of those needing it. Especially when our designs help small communities and underserved populations, our work transcends design, becoming something worthy of being called ‘a life’s work.'”

Monzu is an active and outstanding member of the architecture community. A mentor for the National Council of Architectural Registration Boards (NCARB), he also serves on the Professional Advisory Council for the College of Architecture at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln and is a past president for the Nebraska chapter of the American Institute of Architects (AIA). As a leader in LEO A DALY’s internationally recognized healthcare design practice, Monzu has helped advance the firm to one of the most recognized in the industry.
