Lionakis recently provided interior design services for this play area located in Hawaii Pacific Health’s Kapi’olani Medical Center for Women & Children. This project, occupying the space between two pediatric units, includes a newly renovated, vibrant outside play area as well as an indoor space and has become the new, most popular location for children to socialize and have fun before or after an appointment. The surrounding community helped to support the space by providing new furniture, flooring and paint, as well as toys that the children can play with. Not only are the children loving their new space, but the staff and former patients of Kapi’olani Medical Center are so excited to walk in and see the transformation. A video walk through of the project is available on the Kapi’olani Medical Center for Women & Children Facebook page located here.

Thank you for your dedication to this project! We cannot tell you enough how much of a difference your design has made on the patient experience. The patients and the families interact sooo differently with the space and it is amazing to see that all the hard work and planning is making such a POSITIVE impact.
