Design and Décor
The design of all areas of CCMC focuses on providing a healing environment, with plenty of natural light, increased green space and enhancements to increase the comfort of patients and their families.
The décor theme focuses on the Santa Barbara waterfront and scenes from Stearns Wharf. The seaside theme continues in this unit with bird foot prints on the floor. In addition to being fun and decorative, the footprints allow both nursing and therapy staff - physical and occupational therapy - to motivate children in their recovery process. The foot prints will be used to encourage children to move around and follow the prints down the hallway.
Outside of the unit, the pelicans on pier posts not only are fun décor and help ease stress, they also allow for additional therapeutic interaction for using art to promote healing. Children are encouraged to stretch and reach and touch the pelicans, and to walk "just a little farther" to that pelican way over there, for example.
The new Cottage Children’s Medical Center is designed for optimal patient care, and also to support families at a time when they are under stress. Two separate play areas have been set up inside of CCMC. One is designed for younger children and the second area for adolescents.
