24/7 Service to a Special Population
This emergency department is a special place designed for newborn infants to children 18 years of age, and is the only source for 24/7 pediatric care in the region.
A cross-functional team made up of Studio+ and emergency center staff redesigned this pediatric ED using a Lean design process. All aspects of the layout were examined to increase throughput and yield higher efficiencies.

The interior design included storytelling elements including custom ambient lighting, furniture shaped as different animal characters, and interactive video projectors.
