CDH Accepts Vision Award

Heather&RJ

Recently, design leaders from across the country met in New Orleans for the annual Vision Awards. Heather Lombard and Rhea Jeanne Starnes were there to accept the 2015 Healthcare award for CDH Partners. The winning project was the WellStar Pediatric Center.

The goal for the overall design was to create a safe, ambient healthcare environment that reduces stress and improves patient outcomes by helping Children and their families feel relaxed and comfortable. The Center’s flooring design guides patients and their families easily through the facility. The highlight of the interior is the use of positive distractions that can make an otherwise negative experience one that children enjoy.

After viewing CDH’s entry, one juror said, “[The design] speaks of confidence and imagination. You walk into this environment under a rainbow. It’s almost like going to Disney World!”

Each year the Vision Awards attracts an impressive array of design entries from around the country. For the sixth consecutive year the projects exemplified the height of design innovation and excellence while utilizing flooring in unique and beautiful ways.
