MRI & Radiology - CHKD
Children’s Hospital of The King’s Daughter's goal was to fully renovate the outdated, approximately 11,000 square foot MRI and Radiology Suite including adjacent areas and support facilities located on the first floor of the hospital.
The project had to be multi-phased, working around main corridors in a busy department that looses income each day they are out of commission. It was the design team’s primary goal to create a calming atmosphere for nervous children going into MRI, X-Ray rooms and having to face what can sometimes be frightening procedures for young patients.
The design evolved into a colorful underwater theme with fun floor patterns and custom painted wall murals. We provided tropical back-lit ceilings and murals on the walls of the MRI room with a floating MRI ‘boat’. The staff has already commented on the calming effect the room is having on the children.
