Provena St. Joseph
Provena St. Joseph Medical Center
Provena made major improvements to its Joliet campus, which included the addition of a 300-bed tower and enhanced vehicular and pedestrian access. Hitchcock Design Group collaborated with the architect to design and document the drop-off and main entrance identity for the building, which included signage and a water feature. Immediately adjacent to the lobby, on the main floor level, a small rooftop terrace space serves as a transition into the larger healing garden component. The gardens were designed to accommodate public visitors as well as to serve as a destination for patient recovery and active involvement with the healing process.
The project team explored cost-effective options that included an 18,000 square-foot green roof on the first floor expansion, a “staff only” therapeutic garden, and additional opportunities to design spaces for physical and emotional recovery.
