More Elmhurst Memorial Healthcare projects:
By adopting a patient-centered approach to health care known as Planetree, Elmhurst’s new campus creates an atmosphere that cultivates the healing of the mind, body and spirit while encouraging patients to become more actively involved in their own care.
Patients and their families are placed at the heart of this integrated health care complex. The “ideal patient day” helps ease the transition from physician visits to diagnostic testing to inpatient or outpatient care. This healing environment features all private rooms, a state-of-the-art emergency department, technologically advanced surgical suites, a range of specialty services, individual physician offices, and a retail complex; all of which are geared towards embracing new technologies, expanding community outreach and transforming the delivery of health care.
A home-like appeal is provided through a number of features including overnight accommodations for patient family members, libraries, kitchens, and activity rooms. Numerous courtyards, deliberate views to the exterior, green roofs and healing gardens allow a constant integration of nature within the facility.
