Jonathan Bykowski

I’ve been committed to the healthcare industry since graduating from Philadelphia University with degrees in both Interior Design and Architecture. Earning my Lean Six Sigma Black Belt has enhanced my drive to bring my best to the industry.

Understanding the specific needs of unique patient populations, as well as how caregivers will work, motivates me to push teams to the best possible solution.
