Lighting Design at Inspira Medical Center Mullica Hill Hospital Receives Top Honors

Inspira Health and The Lighting Practice have been awarded a Philament excellence in lighting award for the new Mullica Hill hospital in New Jersey. It is the highest honor given by the Illuminating Engineering Society — Philadelphia and is in recognition of lighting excellence. Project partners on the new hospital included Array Architects, Leach Wallace Associates and Skanska USA.

The Lighting Practice, using an Integrated Project Delivery process, designed the building’s site and interior lighting with an emphasis on biophilic design, wayfinding and the well-being of patients, families and staff. The lighting strategy in the lobby uses layers of integrated light sources to balance the ample daylighting. This includes backlit glass panels, indirect coves to highlight the wood ceiling and hidden pockets to allow light to cascade down textured walls.

Patient rooms use a combination of skylight troffers, small aperture downlights and decorative lighting elements for a functional but hospitality feel. Nurse stations and reception areas enhance wayfinding with integrated millwork lighting and decorative trim downlights. Each clinical space in the hospital supports circadian rhythms with selection of color temperature, fixture placement and dimming.
