Florida Hospital receives AIA Award of Honor

AIA Orlando judges admired the “soothing, healing” interiors

In May, Florida Hospital’s Women’s Tower in Orlando, Florida received an Award of Honor in the Built category from the AIA Orlando.  The awarding jury called the design for the healthcare facility “beautiful… an appropriate use of organic fluid forms” and said that its “interior spaces were soothing, healing and memorable” and its connecting bridge was “very sophisticated.”

VOA, now Stantec provided interior architecture and interior design services for the new Florida Hospital for Women. Florida Hospital is an Adventist faith-based institution that provides whole-person care. VOA, now Stantec’s design strove for a balance between creating a modern healthcare facility with all its amenities and establishing an environment that promotes healing. Designers took the patient’s point of view and incorporated nature-inspired elements throughout the hospital to promote healing and inspire a spiritual connection. The design emphasizes calm, bright, and open environments. In the tower’s 13 floors and 336 licensed beds, women will receive care through all stages of their lives. When completed, this hospital at the heart of a large health village campus will house units for Obstetrics, Surgery, Neonatal ICU, Oncology and Cardiology.

Congratulations to the project team on this well-deserved recognition.
