CENTRAL SURGICAL HUB FOR KETTERING HEALTH NETWORK
A conceptional design for Kettering Health Network Outpatient Surgery Waiting and Café encompasses all the latest evidence-based design that is vital in healthcare environments. The concept was developed based on Ohio’s native botany and referenced throughout the design to create soft forms and use of indigenous materials. The space is a destination in the hospital that includes an open lounge area for staff to patient interaction, a café with ample seating, natural daylight, and connectivity to the outdoors. The space has a monumental greeter’s desk which acts as the central framework from which additional features spire. The space overlooks a lush evergreen botanical garden – a space of respite for patients and staff.
