Covenant Healthcare System selected the SSOE Interior Design team to develop a new Master Interior Standards for their Saginaw and other Michigan locations. The team started their process by evaluating current facilities, conducting interviews of staff and administrators to see what was currently working and not working. We worked with a patient and family peer group, guiding them from their perspective to give feedback on colors, concepts and schemes. Our interior designers used the gathered information combined with their expertise to develop and present three complete interior design concepts for selection.
The design inspiration that was selected by Covenant was “Life – Richness and Beauty”, which included elements of nature and nature images. This concept consists of five color schemes with an updated neutral core color palette, including multiple material options for Covenant to use throughout their healthcare system. The design also included incorporation of branding. SSOE’s Interior Design team worked with the client to carefully evaluate materials and finishes based on functionality, cost, patient safety, and maintenance. We also incorporated feature walls and lighting elements that align with client’s vision and branding.
SSOE developed a Furnishing Standards package that will be implemented along side renovation projects to ensure a cohesive image consistent with Covenant vision and patient expectation.
