Helen DeVos Children's Hospital

In an area of Western Michigan known as “Medical Mile,” the newly constructed Helen DeVos Children’s Hospital stands out among the many surrounding hospitals and medical facilities.

The highly integrated design of Helen DeVos Children’s Hospital seamlessly weaves functional programs with physical design. The new hospital’s shape centers on circular and curvilinear form - from the façade of the building to the flourishing interior details. Intended as a colorful and artistic representation of nature, the 14-story, 464,000 square foot building includes seven working operating rooms, a cardiac catheterization lab, a full imaging center, a neonatal center and a pediatric emergency department, all of which supports a total of 212 beds for specialty treatment and advanced care for children and their families.

Because of Johnsonite’s innovative color matching technology as well as the ergonomic and environmental benefits of our resilient flooring, Johnsonite Solutions were selected for over 90 percent of the hospital’s floor covering needs.
