A Healing Environment

Being a patient is never easy, and you deserve the best that medicine can offer. Our healing environment provides you and your family with a sense of control over stressful situations, and allows for more comfortable rest and recovery.

Patients who stay in our newest facilities will appreciate artistic and aesthetic elements, including:

  • A calming, elegant interior with natural surfaces like marble and limestone
  • Sun-filled rooms and peaceful public spaces that serve as respites for you and your visitors
  • Sound-absorbing materials in patient care areas, including ceiling tiles over clinical hallways and busy workstations
  • A quiet nurse-call system to eliminate noisy overhead paging
  • Serene landscaped gardens nestled throughout the campus for meditation and reflection
  • A dramatic art collection on display throughout the buildings
  • Whimsical animal sculptures in the Bloomberg Children’s Center to delight young patients
  • Art images on the window shades of private patient rooms
