Honoring a Healing Heritage


Major Hospital’s New

Legacy Room

 

A Prominent Hospital in Dallas and its dedicated team of physicians, nurses and clinical staff share an ongoing commitment to compassionate care, medical advancement and faith-based healing. Thanks to a legacy of philanthropy and community support, this provider has grown with its city, becoming a ˜agship hospital of its network.

 

To convey these messages to visitors, this health care center set out to create a “Legacy Room,” which serves as a welcoming and engaging space.

 

In partnership with HKS, this client engaged Xibitz and Lord Cultural Resources to support exhibit and content development. The resulting design encourages visitors to explore topics at their own pace and according to their own interests. 
 

[Communicating, sharing and inspiring.

Nationwide, healthcare providers are recognizing the importance of creating a consistent brand experience for everyone who visits their facilities. In public lobbies, hallways, waiting areas, and specialty centers, every space is an opportunity to connect.]
 

[Challenges and opportunities.

Located in one of this hospital’s largest-ever expansions, the project took into account physical parameters and immediate adjacencies to determine the most effective use of the space. Also, given multiple uses, the space and exhibits were designed to be versatile.]
