Helen Devos Children’s Hospital

Giving and Philanthropy

Grand Rapids, MI

A hospital’s work is serious business – and that can make it especially scary for a child. With this in mind, the Helen DeVos Children’s Hospital provides a warm and welcoming environment, with special amenities for families while offering state-of-the-art health care.

Among those who made this dream, the reality was more than 6,000 donors – and Xibitz was selected to create displays to recognize their gifts and provide location signage in a nontraditional way. A carefully thought-out design and meticulous choices of materials allow for a layering effect that accentuates detail and flow while complementing the building’s overall architectural aesthetic. The result balances playfulness and elegance, using colors and shapes to connect patients, family members, and visitors with the facility in comforting ways. Sounds like good medicine.
