Planetree Component: Healing Environment

Quiet is Best

Enloe Medical Center aims to create a quieter environment so patients can get health-restoring sleep. To make this a priority, we began by eliminating routine overhead paging and dimming the lights for a period of time each day on our inpatient units.

Patients can receive a sleep menu to help them get a good night sleep. Our newest patient tower itself softens noise through the use of ceiling and floor materials. Our quiet hospital workgroup continues to seek ways to ensure patients can rest.

Furry Partners in Healing

Staff and patients at Enloe Medical Center's acute care hospital, Rehabilitation Center, Regional Cancer Center and Behavioral Health unit can experience the comfort of a dog's understanding presence.

Specially trained dogs that are a part of our Animal Assisted Therapy Program and Pets Assisting With Service (P.A.W.S.) Volunteer Program offer patients therapeutic support and emotional comfort.

Peaceful Surroundings

We have created a warm, friendly environment through artwork and interior design. California nature scenes are among the photographs exhibited throughout the hospital. Welcoming family lounges and furniture designed for overnight guests help visitors more comfortably stay with their loved ones. Our meditation room provides a place to reflect and experience a sense of piece.

The Healing Garden at the Enloe Regional Cancer Center provides a place of serenity and reminds patients of the beauty in life. The center was presented with the national Spirit of Planetree Arts & Entertainment Award in 2008 for its healing arts programs.

Local artists created the collection of art panels along the Enloe Parking Structure with the theme of the healing power of nature. For more about art at Enloe, learn about the Arts and Entertainment Planetree initiative.
