Going to get treatment at a cancer center can be a stressful experience. The Pocono Medical Center’s Hughes Cancer Center has a nature theme designed to be a calming atmosphere for its patients. It starts off with large boulders and a fountain in a bright and airy lobby.
A common-sense message is conveyed via a tasteful pedestal sign:
Overhead directional signs guide patients to their treatment:
Room ID signs with a nature theme identify the offices with numbers, symbols, and ADA compliant braille:
The directory signs feature direct impression UV printing for a durable finish:
The second floor atrium features a view down to the lobby below and wall accents with recessed inserts with sections of birch trees.
Here is a closer look at the birch tree inserts with overhead directory signage and floor directories.
The theme of the signage is also carried over into the glass doors with graphics in etchmark vinyl with a partially diffused surface to provide some privacy.
The hospital wayfinding program is rounded out with floor diagram signs that feature evacuation maps.
A nature theme throughout a bright and open facility, and a wayfinding program to help them find their way will hopefully lessen the stress of patients at the new cancer center.
