Devos Children's Hospital
Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA.
Concept Architect for
Jonathan Bailey Associates
The Children's Hospital at the Devos Hospital
is a significant addition to the healthcare
facilities and is situated as an extension of
the current women's and children's wing, which
will convert to a women's hospital following
completion of the new facility.
The building is conceived as a cross between
a children's museum and a hospital, with the
intention that this 'theming' would carry through
the staff approach to care-giving for this age
group. The building is designed around a full-
height atrium, making the facility more under-
standable to the young patients.
