Lodi Memorial Hospital, South Tower
The newly opened South Tower of Lodi Memorial Hospital stands as a proud symbol of growth–and enhanced health care services–in this north-central California community. The addition includes a new emergency department, relocation of urgent care, three floors of patient beds, a new central utility plant and seismic compliance upgrades throughout. Lodi Memorial was one of California's first hospitals to employ the concept of same-handed rooms.
The interiors feature a muted, non-institutional, "non-hospital" green, tan and off-white, with touches of light blue. Public spaces are designed to be welcoming and pleasant. About 100 pieces of original art by 45 local artists adorns the wing's walls. Many capture local and regional scenes, such as Yosemite National Park. A massive three-piece painted mural portrays the beauty of the greater Lodi area.
Outside, the same sense of serenity was designed into the site and hardscape. A beautiful courtyard/healing garden features a parallel curved walkway, a waterfall over a brick wall, a bridge and landscaping that could easily set the scene for an outdoor wedding.
