ALICE A. and REX MARTIN INFUSION CENTER
Using a “cardboard city” design process, whereby the entire facility was constructed, life-size, out of cardboard and tested by nursing colleagues, Goshen Health’s new Infusion Center is a patient-focused, efficient space that promotes healing and interaction. A variety of space types, some more public, some more private, allow patients to choose their preferred environment. Special care was also taken to allow in the highest quality natural light, to control interior acoustics and to allow each patient to control lighting and temperature.
