Balancing Technology and Comfort

Connecticut Children’s Medical Center delivers outstanding care within a patient- and family-centered environment – a duality that can be seen in the organization’s new Orthopedic Center. The facility is one of only seven in the country to feature an EOS imaging system, providing frontal and lateral low-dose radiology images. This technical investment is balanced by a design that harnesses the positive effects of energizing color, soft forms, natural light and biophilic imagery, to create a welcoming and reassuring environment for young patients and their families.



  • The design of the space echoes the movement of the human joint, and is achieved in the form of organic shapes and curves used throughout the space.
  • Colors and patterns aid in wayfinding, especially necessary for clearly directing young patients through the space.
  • Large-scale x-ray graphics bring energy to the space, while creating an environment that is appropriate for a range of ages.
