Staten Island Family Health Center

New York

Published

on

Historically rivaled only by laundromats for drabness and depressing atmosphere, family clinics have been places that patients endured out of necessity rather than choice. But the Staten Island Family Health Center (operated by Staten Island University Hospital) is trying to change that. Located in a neighborhood mall, the storefront clinic features a palette of soothing colors and contours for adult visitors, while offering children diversions a bit beyond the standard fish tank. The MediWall is a changeable panelized mural that acts as a child magnet, while children's exam rooms feature environmental and animal themes. The clinic has been well received, so much so that the hospital plans to use the same design techniques in other facilities.

Hear from Bevan Bloemendaal, former VP, Global Environments & Creative Services at Timberland, how to connect the dots between disciplines, claiming and creating a clear differentiation for the brand and ensuring that any asset (experience, product, ad, store, office, home, video, game) is created with intention.
