Tom joined Pope Architects in 2004, and served as a Principal, Architect and Senior Medical Planner during his tenure with the firm. Tom devoted over 37 years to the architecture and healthcare industry, gracing our firm with 17 of those years, providing his knowledge, experience, and wit to all who worked with him.
Under Tom’s mentorship and leadership, Pope’s healthcare practice grew and developed client relationships throughout the Midwest, with providers like Allina Health, CentraCare Health, Essentia Health, HealthPartners, Hennepin Health, Mayo Clinic, Marshfield Clinic, Orthology Clinics, RC Hospital & Clinics, Regions Hospital and Windom Area Hospital.
Tom’s specialty was collaborating with healthcare providers and departments through the space planning and programming process, and he was a key leader on many of our master planning and complex phased endeavors.
We are grateful for all that Tom offered to Pope Architects and our clients over the years. His empathy for patients and care providers and dedication to his craft leaves a lasting impact on our firm. Thank you Tom, and Happy Retirement!
