Henry Ford West Bloomfield Hospital
A community center for well-being, the new Henry Ford West Bloomfield Hospital looks to integrate patient care with fitness, education and research to promote wellness in addition to the treatment of disease.
Visitors enter into an environment that emphasizes the preservation of health as much as the treatment of illness. Connecting the diagnostic and treatment areas and inpatient lodges are two, 3-story atriums with more than 2,000 live trees and plants designed to bring in daylight. Main Street, the hospital’s central corridor offers imaging services, retail shops with a wellness theme, a café, a culinary demonstrative kitchen and wellness center that bridges integrative and traditional medicine to offer a full spectrum of therapeutic options. Equipped with upholstered headboards, large sleeper sofas and patient-controlled thermostats, patient rooms look and feel like fine hotel accommodations. Windowed nursing alcoves outside each room improve care with convenient computer terminals, staff workspace and ample storage.
Committed to preserving the woodlands and wetlands that make the campus an ideal healing environment for patients, the new facility is LEED Silver certified and features many Earth-friendly elements.
