The Hampden medical center serves as both an advanced medical facility and a community hospital. Easily accessible for local and surrounding communities, the architecture was designed to reflect the rolling hills of the Appalachian Trail and the soft curves of the Susquehanna River. At the facility, a collaborative medical staff workforce partners with both Penn State Health physicians and private local community clinicians to offer a wide spectrum of care. 

The design team also carefully considered the patient experience by assembling a 14-member community group to decide on the artwork, technology, and more to best support the patients within. The design was inspired by natural colors, and even the furniture includes gentle curves just like the architecture.

To create Seattle Children's Hospital, hundreds of passionate families, employees, and community members came together with ZGF Architects and VPI Representatives to craft a flexible, high-performance, patient-centered space. With eight floors above ground and three levels of underground parking, the project adds eight new operating suites, two catheterization labs, 20 flexible inpatient rooms, a new outpatient Cancer and Blood Disorders Clinic (CBDC), an outpatient infusion center, a retail pharmacy, an inpatient pharmacy, laboratories, and sterile processing space. The building connects to phase one, an inpatient bed tower, and an emergency department. 

The intentional wayfinding layout called the Discovery Trail outlines four zones within the hospital, and beautiful artwork by Shaun Qwalsius Peterson brings it to life in color and detail. This space was intentionally designed to support both the patient journey and caregiver experience.

The Baptist Memorial Hospital in Crittenden had served a small rural community in West Memphis for years, but needed more space and resources to accommodate a growing number of patients. Despite these needs, they had an extremely limited budget to achieve all of the enhancements that they required. With the help of ESarch and Carolina, they created a new campus that included additional beds, a cancer center, a more efficient ED overflow system, an indoor-outdoor cafe, and a small chapel—all within budget. Today, the hospital can better serve both the medical staff and patients through their new, inviting and space-efficient space.

The UC Irvine Medical Center was looking to upgrade the Chao Comprehensive Digestive Disease Center by expanding clinical and support spaces as well as updating the style to feel more light, airy, and welcoming. With the help of Tangram and Tangram’s in-house designer, the team chose Carolina furniture to create cohesive waiting spaces for the newly renovated Center.

Despite the first floor waiting area’s long and thin dimensions, designers used flooring details both inside and out to create the illusion of no-boundaries, complete with floor-to-ceiling windows and the thin frame of Rule of Three seating. Today, the furniture and space maintain a fresh, uplifting place to help patients find more comfort and beauty in healing spaces.
