UMC is thrilled to welcome Camilla Yamada to the team as Healthcare Market Lead. In her new role, Yamada will be responsible for management and oversight of healthcare clients, projects, and strategic opportunities across the organization.

“Having Camilla on our team to coordinate our focus will help us improve our delivery and meet the customers' increasing needs,” said Steve Brooks, President. “She knows what is critical for healthcare facilities to provide better resiliency and patient experiences.”

“Camilla has a deep understanding of the challenges healthcare facilities face day to day. Her strong educational background, experience, enthusiasm, and relationships will prove to be a great asset to UMC and the industry moving forward,” said Troy Turpin, Director of Development. “We are thrilled to have her lead our healthcare team.”

Yamada brings experience working directly for healthcare organizations on both the operations and capital construction sides. She began her career as Manager of Plant Operations for Providence Health and Services hospital in Polson, Montana. Later, she came to the Puget Sound region as Construction Project Manager for Providence Health and Services in Seattle, and then took a position at Seattle Children’s Hospital as Director of Building and Engineering. With more than a dozen years of healthcare experience, she understands both the intricacies of working in the healthcare physical environment and the unique constraints associated with operational and capital dollars needed to service critical infrastructure.

As the Washington State Society for Healthcare Engineering (WSSHE) Puget Sound Chapter President and board member, as well as a member of both the American Society for Health Care Engineering (ASHE) and the American College of Healthcare Executives (ACHE), Yamada is a lifelong learner and firm believer that education is the one thing that can never be taken away. She holds an M.S. in Disaster Medicine and Management, along with the credentials CHFM, CHC, Certified Healthcare Physical Environment Worker, and BOC L1 & L2. Yamada helped develop the “Stationary Engineers Apprenticeship Program” in collaboration with the International Union of Operating Engineers (IUOE) Local 302 and Seattle Children’s Hospital; this program is a rigorous four-year program that couples classroom learning with on-the-job training to equip the next generation of building engineers.

Yamada is a proud mother to a beautiful 11-year-old competitive gymnast. Off the clock and the mat, she and her daughter enjoy spending their time outdoors playing all the ball sports or getting ready for their next big adventure.
