Eastern Maine Medical Center
A new kitchen and servery has just opened at Eastern Maine Medical Center. The project is part of a larger $305M modernization effort aimed at improving patient and staff satisfaction through a holistic approach to health and wellness. The new kitchen focuses on offering healthy, locally sourced foods with a new menu designed by a renowned chef. The servery offers guests a vibrantly designed food court with several options of food stations. The new layout connects to an open dining area which provides a gathering place and respite area. Through thoughtful phasing and the use of temporary facilities, E4H sequenced this renovation to minimize the impact to the hospital's food service work flow.

Central Hub for Kettering Health Network
A conceptional design for Kettering Health Network Outpatient Surgery Waiting and Café encompasses all the latest evidence based design and human needs that are vital in healthcare environments. The concept was developed based on Ohio’s native botany and referenced throughout the design to create soft forms and use of indigenous materials. The space is a destination in the hospital that includes an open lounge area for staff to patient interaction, a café with ample seating, natural day light, and connectivity to the outdoors. The space has a monumental greeters desk which acts as the central framework from which additional features spire. The space overlooks a lush evergreen botanical garden - a space of respite for patients and staff.
