NatureMaker recently has completed an installation in the new $365 million Banner Children’s Hospital now called the Cardon Children’s Medical Center. Patients and staff are preparing to move into the new state-of-the-art children’s medical center on November 2, 2009. Read the latest press release Located in the fast-growing East Valley of metro Phoenix, Cardon Children’s Medical Center provides comprehensive pediatric care for a broad spectrum of children’s health needs. The Banner Health owned and operated facility will expand to 248 beds when it opens.
NatureMaker art trees were chosen to compliment the theme of nature and home. Installation included four (4) 16’ tall “rainforest inspired” trees; two (2) of the trees were designed around the reception desk in the lobby/atrium and two (2) trees were designed for the open atrium space. The four (4) trees as a whole created an intricate overhead canopy indigenous to a tropical rainforest. It was the finishing touch that brought all the other themed elements together. The inspiration was to create a kinder, gentler environment for the children and their progeny to enjoy…to provide an atmosphere of healing in an otherwise formidable space. Watch video
