These features combine to create a calming, healing environment for both patients and caregivers.
"I see hope here. The clarity of glass, white walls, the colors of natural courts, and the attention to detail expresses the science involved in healing. Light is the theme. The warmth of the sun lifts the spirit of patients during difficult treatments for cancer. Well composed. Crisply detailed."
