Benesch worked with Carolinas Medical Center – NorthEast on numerous campus improvements. These projects have resulted in significant change to over half of the hospital’s 60 acre main campus. While many of the projects were building expansions (Medical Arts Building, Emergency Department, Clinical Services Building), others were more site related (new Hospital entrance, renovations to the Memorial Garden, Children’s Garden, master landscape plan, and patient, visitor and staff parking decks). The result of these improvements has been a significantly renovated campus with new vehicular and pedestrian entrances, new streetscape improvements, and a variety of outdoor spaces for visitors, patients, and staff.
Patient care begins when a patient enters the campus. Benesch has worked with CMC-NorthEast to create quiet seating areas and landscape amenities that reduce stress and provide a positive distraction to what can be a stressful experience.
