Nemours Clinic Lobby Study
Nemours Children’s Health System (Nemours) sought to renovate the main lobby and substantial portions of the first floor of the client’s Children’s Specialty Clinic. They were seeking design services to assist their leadership in fundraising this very important project that will help to align their facilities design with their model of clinical excellence. RS&H updated the 1988 aesthetics in line with the client’s branded environments as well as providing a more functional code compliant layout incorporating more services for both families and staff.
The scope of the work included restrooms, elevators, retail, food service, reception, and circulation with a heavy emphasis on wayfinding. We studied the arrival sequence and provided a quality experiential journey from the new easier access entry toward the elevators leading their patients and family toward the clinic of their choice, as well as maintained their time honored model train display in a new vision integral with their experience. Finally, to accentuate their location on the St. Johns River, we relocated their café to the riverfront side of the building and proposed an outdoor patio.
