Selected Projects / Mount St. Joseph Hospital: Hospital Wayfinding

In this partnership between Mount St. Joseph’s Hospital and the Health Design Lab at Emily Carr, a team of students led by Honorary Professor Jorge Frascara set out to research and develop a more efficient wayfinding and signage system within a very complex context with multiple stakeholders and different expectations.  The project team set to design a flexible system that could adapt to environmental changes and create clarity in navigation for patients, families, and staff.  Over the course of a number of weeks the team reviewed the problem space, researched successful international initiatives with an emphasis on cost effective and efficient solutions, and offered recommendations for change to Mount St. Joseph Hospital.
