Lankenau Hospital Wayfinding System

Honor Award
Lankenau Hospital Wayfinding System, Main Line Health - Lankenau Hospital, AGS, ex;it

If healthcare is considered as a journey, then why not provide tools to support all phases of the process, from the time an appointment is made, through to leaving the scheduled procedure? In fact, why not measure how the visitor experiences navigating the facility and use the findings to guide the priorities of a phased implementation plan? Lankenau Hospital agreed with this cutting-edge approach and undertook a program of pre-arrival destination cards, wayfinding guides, exterior and interior signage, and volunteer training.

Symbol Usage in Health Care

Special Mention Award
Symbol Usage in Health Care, Hablamos Juntos, an initiative of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, JRC Design

Universally recognized graphic symbols, such as those used to delineate parking spaces and other facilities for individuals who are physically handicapped, can be an effective tool for communicating important information to individuals with Limited English Proficiency (LEP). The aim of this project was to design a set of graphic symbols that would be easily understood and, ultimately could be universally recognized for use in health care environments to aid LEP visitors.

San-Ai Clinic Color and Signage Design

Merit Award
San-Ai Clinic Color and Signage Design, San-Ai Kai Medical Corp., MED

San-Ai Clinic is a rehabiliation facility that recently undertook a renovation and expansion, almost doubling its usable space for rehabilitation activities.

Purposely designed free of elaborate appointments, the space features open spaces, high ceilings, and no partitions—creating a modern, friendly environment. The space is divided into 12 functional areas and patient therapy is not limited to any one space; patients can move from area to area in circuit-training fashion.
