Initial Concept | The Saint Vincent Hospital is an exciting, innovative hospital facility that provides a relaxing, healing environment with an interior atrium garden.
Lasting Impact | Pressley Associates successfully collaborated to design a spectacular landscape at the facility's core that provides a unique healing environment for patients and their families. Saint Vincent Hospital sits on seven hills in central Massachusetts. This medical center climbs the side of one of these hills and the sloping landscape in the atrium makes one feel as though the interior is part of the hills visible beyond the glass roof. The waterfalls, rock ledges and vegetation inside the Hospital's atrium disguise and cover a concrete tunnel that contains the Providence & Worcester Railroad. Sunshine streaming through the atrium reflects from the three-story waterfall, which cascades over sculpted rock formations. The award winning Saint Vincent Hospital is a wonderful example of the potential of interior landscape architecture.Client | Tenet / St. Vincent Health System
