  • Council Meeting #3 - Jan 10, 2019

    over 1 year ago

    The architectural team joined the Patient and Family Advisory Council at this meeting. After a review of the planning phase, Council participated in a fun workshop. Divided into four teams, Council discussed the flow and experience that they envisioned for the new hospital. Each team was responsible for envisioning one of four areas. These areas included:

    • The LRT

    • The front entry

    • The emergency department

    • A patient’s room.

    Each team, then, cut out photos from magazines and built a vision board of their assigned area.

    Several themes emerged from these visions boards including:

    Several themes emerged from these visions boards including:

    • Hope

    • A connection to nature

    • A sense of security and warmth

    • A pathway to wellness

    Some of the more specific details that emerged included the need for natural light, warm colours, plants, wood elements, artwork, and designing spaces for cold climates.

    At the next meeting (Thursday, February 14), the architectural team will review the workshop input and present these design and operational principles.

    The Patient and Family Advisory Council looked at aspects of how to create a vision and theme for the new hospital and the surrounding neighborhood. To help guide discussions and provide background information, a recap of a recent City of Edmonton Engagement session was presented. The information briefed members on what a healthy community means and what it might look like.

    Council members explored some initial concepts of what healthcare looks like to Edmontonians. A couple of key questions were presented and discussed including:

    • What do Edmontonians want in a new hospital?

    • How do Edmontonians define a healthy community?

    Over the upcoming weeks, Council will craft a vision and theme for a healthy community. The vision and theme will help guide the design concept of the hospital and the neighborhood.

    During the meeting, Council also reviewed the general approach to designing and building the hospital and had an opportunity to talk about the design concept process and ask questions.
