Earlier this year, HEALTHCARE DESIGN launched a public nomination period on the magazine's Web site (www.healthcaredesignmagazine.com) and asked our readership to tell us who they thought were the most influential people in healthcare design in 2010.

A shortlist of 50 names was established following the nomination process from which the final voting took place. The final votes were cast by our Editorial Board, our publishing partners at The Center for Health Design, and the HEALTHCARE DESIGN publishing team, allowing us to arrive at a final list of 25 individuals.

On this list, you'll find a veritable who's who of the healthcare design industry, from architects and interior designers to academics and researchers. While there are always worthy names that are left out of any such list, we do feel that these 25 people are fairly representative of today's best and brightest, and we congratulate those individuals who made the final list-surely one of the most heartening and flattering forms of praise is recognition from one's peers.

If you find yourself disagreeing with the results, we encourage you to watch these pages (and your inbox) for instructions on how to vote in next year's poll.
