Santa Barbara: Expect charm

The sweetie didn’t expect workplace charm when he started the EHR project in June; but in Santa Barbara, charm is mandatory. In 2012, Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital completed the $300 million Phase 4 of their in-patient facility replacement. The hospital’s architectural design combines traditional Santa Barbara Spanish colonial stucco and red tile with 21st Century medical technology.

Sculpture, murals, and paintings from Central Coast California artists fill the halls of the new wing.

The art and garden spaces offer patients, visitors, and employees a quiet place to relax and recover, a rare commodity in a stressful hospital environment.
