A group of staff, patients and families returned to the CHS warehouse on Thursday, June 6 to give feedback on the latest interior designs for the new maternal and children’s hospital. The interior design of the new hospital will be finalized through 2013. Children, families and staff have been providing input and on this day, they got an opportunity to view the latest details.

They were greeted by enthusiastic interior designers. “The essence of the interior design came from the community,” says Anita Rossen, associate partner with ZGF Architects. She told participants that the design team, which is based in the U.S., “spent hours looking at those drawings and pictures… (They) were captivated by what the kids came up with.” The group also heard about initial plans and thoughts for wayfinding in the new hospital. The group will meet again with designers in September.
