At the 2015 Healthcare Design Expo & Conference in Washington, DC, Ballinger’s Louis Meilink, Jr., FAIA, FACHA, ACHE, Amy Floresta, and Christina Grimes along with Dr. Randall Oyer, Medical Director, Oncology Program, Penn Medicine Lancaster General Health, presented the results from the post-occupancy evaluation of the Ann B. Barshinger Cancer Institute. In their talk entitled “Iconic Design and Clinical Evidence: You Can Have Both!” the team described how the iconic and biophilic design effectively integrates with the caregiving model to provide a best-in-class experience for every patient visit. Dr. Oyer remarked how the iconic design is a beacon for the community, an important influence in retaining and recruiting staff, and by putting the patient experience first, feels less like a hospital and more like a home environment to many patients and visitors.
