Namrata has led the design and delivery of top-rated hospitals including the new Stanford Hospital and the University of California-San Francisco (UCSF) Gateway Medical Building. She also manages smaller healthcare retrofits and additions. Regardless of size, Namrata loves the challenge of delivering complex facilities that are technology-driven, patient-focused, and operations-enhanced.
Described by her peers as “a problem solver by talent and temperament,” Namrata leads by example and encourages team members as they collaboratively address issues related to planning, design, and construction. In 2015 Stanford recognized her as the “Colleague of the Quarter” for exemplary contributions that “inspired and supported the performance and achievement of others.” When the wife of a patient thanked her for creating healing and meditation spaces that helped the couple withstand their most difficult moments, Namrata felt gratitude, knowing she had found her calling.
Even with a demanding job and teenage son to care for, Namrata keeps a clear head. She credits her yoga regime for keeping her centered, strong, and flexible—traits that serve her well as an architect and mother.
