The Laguna Honda is far more than just a hospital with a few eco considerations and some flashy architecture.

Designed as a comprehensive health complex, the Laguna Honda goes above and beyond the call of duty by featuring a media library, a hair salon, an arty gallery, and extensive outdoor gardens that are used to grow a multitude of plants and vegetables. Furthermore, the 62 acre community is LEED silver certified and even houses an animal therapy center.

Implications - Laguna Honda goes above and beyond the practical functions of a health care facility. Its design makes way for a pleasurable hospital experience that is just as much about treating patients as it is about making them feel at home. Beyond the basic services a hospital offers, the benefits to patients and staff are limitless.
