The Children’s Hospital of New Orleans is one of the largest redevelopment projects in New Orleans, Louisiana. This nonprofit hospital will include a newly designed same-day surgery unit, cardiac intensive care unit, neonatal intensive care unit, care center, entrance, and lobby. The lighting design strategy, hardware, and controls were designed to work holistically with all the other building systems to optimize the care and comfort of the patient. The recessed ceiling light fixtures have been carefully selected to reduce maintenance needs and to provide a consistent light quality. In the Outpatient Pavilion Lobby, linear LED lights were designed to seamlessly transition from the wooden ceiling and into a wood wall, creating an element of visual interest with a strong rhythm.
