Restroom doors don’t have to be just doors. They can also contribute to a safe and serene environment. The sliding glass doors in each patient room of our Building Hope expansion feature designs by artist Amy Ruppel – part of our use of artwork throughout the building to create an overall sense of healing.
Ruppel created four different forest scenes. One of the four is etched into each panel of the door. Every door includes one panel with the same design. The second panel features one of the other scenes.
Both panels slide back to create an extra wide opening that makes it safe and easy for patients — plus equipment and caregivers – to enter the restroom.
Ruppel’s forest designs take their cue from the new wayfinding system we’re introducing throughout our campus Jan. 20. The system reorganizes our new and existing spaces into four zones. Building Hope is in the Forest Zone.
