Kaiser taps two winners in its small hospital contest
San Francisco Business Times

After much hoopla, Kaiser Permanente late last month named the winners in its American Idol-like “Small Hospital, Big Ideas” design competition, a nearly yea-long competition that attracted 108 entries from all over the world. But more important than the winners for Kaiser is the fact that it collected design ideas from dozens of top architecture, design and engineering firms. Ultimately, two of the three finalists ended up tying for the top spot: the San Bruno-based Aditazz architecture firm and a tag team of San Francisco’s Mazzetti Nash Lipsey Burch engineering firm and architects Perkins+Will New York.
