Designers of restorative outdoor (and green indoor) spaces in healthcare settings, this competition is for you! Read on, especially the bolded part, to find out why.

HealthcareDesign 2011 Remodel/Renovation Competition

Have you recently completed the renovation of an emergency department or a respite area within a healthcare facility? If so, this competition is for you.

The Remodel/Renovation competition is open to ALL HealthcareDesign readers including architects, landscape architects, interior designers, and facilities wishing to highlight their latest projects. Submissions will be accepted under two categories: Emergency Rooms or Respite Area, which includes indoor spaces such as atriums, chapels, meditation areas, and water features, and outdoor spaces such as courtyards, therapeutic/healing gardens, landscaped grounds, front porches, entry gardens, plazas, roof gardens and roof terraces.

A panel of experts appointed by The Center for Health Design will review and evaluate all submissions and narrow the projects down to the Top 5 in each category. Projects will then be posted online at for reader voting and comments. The projects with the most reader votes will be named “Best in Category,” and will be published, along with the four runners-up, in our December issue of HEALTHCARE DESIGN.

There are no entry or publication fees and submissions are due July 29.

Awards will be presented at our HEALTHCARE DESIGN.11 conference in Nashville this November.*
