Building the Future of HealthCare

Published 01-12-2010 11:12 AM | Mark D. Birdwhistell  

I was recently sent a video taped by the local Health and Wellness Television program featuring Dr. Karpf and one of his many tours of the new A.B Chandler Hospital.  An informal count shows that Dr. Karpf has conducted more than 50 personalized tours of the new facility.

I encourage you to take 10 minutes to watch this video. The old saying is that a picture is worth a thousand words.  If this is true, then the video represents millions of words.  It is a great opportunity to hear Dr. Karpf discuss some of the features of the design and architecture as well as see first-hand just how large the hospital is going to be upon completion.  He discusses areas that will be "green space." He also discusses how art and music will be incorporated into the new hospital which will cultivate an environment of healing.  

Even though I have been on the tour I still am continuously amazed at the magnitude of this project and the impact of having such a world-class academic medical center.

If you would like to read more about the construction I encourage you to visit the following link to our website including our most recent "Renewal" newsletter.
