If you have to be in the Hospital, make it a beautiful one.
White Plains Hospital is the only hospital in New York to be named to Soliant Health’s list of Top 20 Beautiful Hospitals, and is voted the 8th most beautiful in the U.S.
White Plains Hospital received nearly 10,0000 votes after being nominated by Brian Kerr of Mamaroneck, after his positive experience at the Hospital. Mr. Kerr commented, “I was so amazed with how the Hospital has grown and advanced so much in such a short amount of time. It really is impressive and a beautiful healing environment.”
For its eighth year, Soliant conducted an 11-month long nomination period for hospitals across the country to determine which hospitals ranked among the best looking by members of their community. The nomination period collected more than 70 entries, which Soliant said, was the most diverse to date.
A soothing environment has been shown in studies to enhance the healing process by reducing stress, anxiety and tension. The Hospital leadership had that in mind when it embarked on the most major transformation of its facilities in its entire 123-year history a few years ago.
Many of the new spaces throughout the campus of the 292 bed facility are said to include warm earth tones, wood paneling, abundant natural light, and colorful plants, to evoke a sense of bringing the outside indoors to enhance feelings of calm and relaxation during stressful times.
