About Rhea Jeanne
Rhea Jeanne joined CDH Partners in 2003, and she has been driven by the opportunity to design spaces that inspire and enhance the daily lives of its users.
She has led several award-winning projects for large outpatient specialty facilities, such as ambulatory surgery centers, imaging centers, cardio-vascular and orthopedic specialties, and numerous hospital-based practices.
Her compassion for patients helps Rhea Jeanne analyze how each facility can better function for their care. She is acutely aware of the power that the environment can have to calm some of the anxiety that comes with a doctor’s visit and create a more positive experience. When visiting one of her projects, the staff told her about a two-year-old patient who did not need to be sedated for an MRI procedure because he was so engaged with the “positive distractions” she had designed.
