    Penn Medicine Radnor, designed by Ballinger, transforms a derelict suburban office park into a community-focused, sustainable, mixed-use development rooted in nature. The 250,000 SF ambulatory care center is designed for regeneration of both the site and human health. The building and its attached garage form a U-shape around a courtyard, integrating it into the surrounding landscape and blurring the distinction between indoors and outdoors.

    A letter from a patient to the CEO of one of New England’s premier hospitals saying how great the care she received was, but the physical environment, especially the art, was a true disservice to the patients. The CEO made it his mission to implement a fully donor funded art program hospital wide to create a calming space. In Great American Art's initial walk-thru, we noted the walls were filled with things that didn't aid in the healing process. Using EBD for art to guide selections, we enhanced the physical environment providing points of connection with meaningful works of art that help all deal with the challenging circumstances they face.

    How could a large health care provider use creative design principles to proactively improve the health of the community it serves, and empower its constituents to participate in enhancing their own individual well-being? Parkview Health, a large nonprofit health system of more than 80 community hospitals and clinics which is headquartered in Fort Wayne, serves residents of northeast Indiana and northwest Ohio through inpatient and outpatient facilities, physician offices, and affiliate entities. Through routine needs assessments, community health needs are identified, including food equity/access to fresh produce. Alleviating food insecurity through education and access to low-cost, healthy foods requires support from hospital administrators and area governmental and social service agencies; and a physical location on campus has been needed to serve as a learning center and greenhouse where these activies would take place.
