Elmhurst finishes second in nation's Most Beautiful Hospital contest

Soliant Health, a leading specialty healthcare staffing provider and part of Adecco Group, has named Elmhurst Hospital as Soliant's second Most Beautiful Hospital in the U.S. for 2016.

More than 70 hospitals were nominated for Most Beautiful consideration. Nearly 200,000 votes were registered in the subsequent month-long online voting period, which resulted in Soliant's list of the Top 20 Most Beautiful Hospitals in the U.S.
Elmhurst Hospital received 21,219 votes. The winning hospital, Doctors Memorial Hospital in Bonifay, Fla., had nearly 39,000 votes.
Elmhurst Hospital also finished second in 2013, as well as #5 in 2012, #16 in 2014 and #8 in 2015.
On its page announcing the results, this is how Soliant describes Elmhurst Hospital:
"This building's stylish, unintimidating looks have more in common with a contemporary hotel than most medical facilities. Built from the ground up to incorporate the latest trends in healthcare design, our 2016 runner-up is enjoying its 5th year on our list."

I'm so glad to here about this distinction. The beauty of this hospital has healing benefits. My husband and I have had to visit this facility a number of times over the past few years for various reasons, many of which were stressful. Approaching this beautiful structure, viewing the gardens and the non-sterile interior added calm to those situations.
