In this slideshow from the local newspaper, and this short promo video, you can see a bit more of the unit, including the lovely mosaic work of one of my dear friends. Overall, the team of people designing the physical space and visual experience in this hospital are just awesome. It really helps that the Arts in Medicine program is so fully integrated into the hospital's mission and goals.
The same print shop also printed my sun and moon decals that decorate the soffits in the patient rooms.
The artistic experience won't stop with the walls and the floors; patients will be immersed in creative activities as much as possible while receiving care, as part of their whole-person treatment at Shands. I just hope that soon, every major hospital will support a similar program and embrace this approach.
