Spotlight on Heather Hayes, Senior Advisor, McMillan Pazdan Smith Architecture

Heather brings over 20 years of experience in strategic planning, analytics, project management, facilities planning, and operational integration to the firm with a specialization in helping clients achieve strategic growth. 

Prior in-house experience working with established hospital systems gives her a valuable perspective on advising MPS clients. Heather’s skills extend beyond healthcare into other business sectors to help clients create a long-term vision and the strategies to help them get there. 

With economic challenges, demographic changes, and increased competition, the demand for advisory services for expanding cities and counties, educational institutions, and healthcare systems has never been higher. As Heather says,

“We want to help clients get it right the first time, missteps can be costly. The case for thoughtful planning is greater than ever.” 

The McMillan Pazdan Smith advisory services team supports clients by providing market assessments, feasibility studies, and facility development to identify and capitalize on new opportunities within their communities. 

Heather has a Master of Healthcare Administration from the Medical University of South Carolina, a Bachelor of Science in Exercise Science from the University of South Carolina, and a certificate of completion in Financial Management from Cornell University. Heather and her husband enjoy the country life on their farm in Pickens County where they live with their rescue dog, Penny.
