Mitra Pakdaman Silva is the founder of LA Healthcare Design Inc., a Los Angeles-based interior design studio. Utilizing over ten years of in-field experience, she brings her elegant and innovative design concepts to the healthcare industry.

Mitra received the bulk of her interior design experience at the award-winning company HLW. As a member of their design team, she was involved in design development for Walt Disney®, ESPN®, HBO®, Intuit®, and Equinox®. Since her time at HLW, Mitra has worked independently on upscale hospitality, commercial and residential projects. She now heads LA Healthcare Design Inc., creating state-of-the-art healthcare facilities locally and internationally.

Her own experience over the years led her to the realization that there was a need for spaces that offer patients and staff an environment that better supports healing services. “Time after time, I found myself in medical and dental offices that were dreary or poorly lit or in disrepair. Instead of a comforting space, I was often in rooms that made me anxious or uncomfortable. This was how my vision began, as a patient. I believe that the proper design can create a flow that positively influences productivity and the mood of each person who interacts in that space.” At LA Healthcare Design Inc., Mitra creates spaces that meld design and functionality, beauty as well as flow.

Mitra volunteers her time to philanthropic endeavors, such as the design consultation and space planning for the New Design Charter School in downtown Los Angeles and bathroom remodeling for the Santa Monica Aquarium: Heal the Bay project. Fulfilling a decade-long vision, she has initiated projects in Barron, Mexico as well as in Kenya and Burkina Faso in Africa.  Her hope is to bring together conscious and dedicated doctors from around the world to provide quality and affordable healthcare to the local communities.  Mitra received her B.S. in Interior Design from California State University of Northridge, and currently resides in Los Angeles, California.
