The last thing you want to do in a medical facility is lose your way. Successful wayfinding in a healthcare environment is achieved through a sophisticated and synergistic system of color, graphics, mapping and other visual cues. The objective is to guide patients and visitors as silently and effortlessly as possible.
Through effective wayfinding signage and graphics, the complex and confusing can become clear and calm. The orderly structuring and presentation of information empowers people to comfortably access an environment. Such components as floor imagery and colors and a custom flexible patient signage system, exemplify how the strategic use of environmental graphics can assist, facilitate and “chart” a healthcare environmentʼs wayfinding objectives.
Hunt Design often leads focus groups with key stakeholders to ensure the system is on target. Focus group input often provides critical information unavailable from any other source. By involving a wide variety of users throughout the planning process, the final design solution is sure to address the medical facility’s mission.
Graphics have also become a critical part of marketing and fund raising for these facilities. The wide variety of comprehensive donor recognition programs has become a key part of a hospitalʼs success and long-term economic viability. Specialists in donor recognition systems, programs created by Hunt Design span primary architectural walls and donor recognition components on every floor to those on the building’s exterior. An effective solution is in finding a balance between honoring donors for their generosity and respecting the environment.
