Loma Linda University Medical Center is recognized regionally for patient-focused, world-class care, provided by highly respected specialists in a convenient and accessible environment. They are known for their cancer treatment process that takes strives to accompany their patients at all parts of their medical/healing journeys.
Their commitment to whole person care ensures that the entire cancer treatment process is individualized and focused on treating patient’s physical, emotional and spiritual needs.
Loma Linda values the contribution the design of its hospital has in patient experience so they worked closely with the Aesthetics team during each part of the construction for their new medical oncology and infusion center.
Starting with interviews with patients, important clues were gleaned as to what would be healing for patients in this challenging environment. The integration of color, patterns, textures and artwork reflected a spa like environment while the beautiful light filled architecture provided a combination of privacy and safety to all who enter the space.
“I have had the pleasure of working with Aesthetics, Inc., in my capacity at LLUMC and previously during my work at Exempla Good Samaritan Medical Center in Colorado. It was their practice of evidence-based design, their experience in complex healthcare design environments, and their commitment to excellent service that prompted me to recommend them to work with our design and delivery partners when I joined LLUMC. Their involvement has been invaluable in developing a strategic wayfinding program, interior design master plans and an arts program, to be phased in over the next several years of extensive facility upgrades. Their approach utilizes tools to reinforce institutional branding, improve customer service and the hospitality feel, and tell stories of our hospital’s innovations in science and caring, while reflecting our institution’s faith-based mission.” — Jesse Mock, VP of Facilities and Environment, Loma Linda University Medical Center, Loma Linda, CA
