Indiana University Health West Hospital
Indiana University Health West was designed and built as a true healing environment, offering a range of clinical programs in a natural setting with gardens, ponds and over a mile of walking trails on its 65-acre campus. The $125 million, 76-bed hospital is located in the rapidly growing city of Avon, Indiana.
IU Health asked Corbin Design to develop a system of unique and easily maintained exterior and interior signs for the new medical center—a system that carried the IU Health brand identity but differed from previous sign systems that we had developed for other IU Health facilities. We delivered with an integrated system that uses limestone bases on exterior signage and interior signs with wood accents, wooden cabinets and background patterns inspired by nature. Many interior signs use clear acrylic panels with vinyl messaging and graphics that are attached to the signs by museum mounts, allowing easy and inexpensive updating as locations change.
The system reflects IU Health West’s natural surroundings, distinctive architecture and the healing nature of the facility itself.
