January 22, 2016 - Contact FacilitiesNet Editorial Staff »
When administrators at Nemours Alfred I. duPont Hospital for Children, in Wilmington, Delaware, selected furnishings and finishes for the hospital’s 450,000-square-foot expansion, they took to heart the many opinions and wishes that families, children and caregivers shared with them.
The result is a hospital designed for and planned by children and families that promotes emotional, and physical healing, featuring noraplan environcare™ and noraplan® sentica in corridors, patient rooms, work stations, clinical spaces and waiting rooms.
