Patient Pavilion - Windows


 Windows to Improved Health

The Patient Paviion is designed to allow maximum outdoor light into patient rooms. The Patient Pavilion has 365 windows, one for each day of the year (sorry Feb. 29).
Patient Pavilion windows come in all shapes and sizes. The facade of the Patient Pavilion welcomes people entering New Scotland Avenue from Madison Avenue.

There are 365 windows of various sizes and shapes in the Patient Pavilion. That's one for every day of the year. (Sorry Feb. 29.)

The new building is designed to allow for maximum exterior light to benefit patients and staff. All Patient rooms have exterior windows, including the new single-patient style rooms on the neonatal intensive care floor.

"If you're under a lot of stress, it's great to be able to look out the window and bring yourself back to reality,” said Michael Horgan, M.D., Division Head, Neonatology. "Tell yourself, 'OK, let me take a breath.' Seeing the sun or blue sky will be a huge benefit for our patients, their families and our staff."
