From specifically trained doctors and nurses to colorful, friendly waiting rooms, everything at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta is designed expressly for kids.

What’s possible from the moment a child arrives at the Center for Advanced Pediatrics? The best care and the best experience aided by the healing power of nature.

Inspired by Atlanta’s reputation as “a city in a forest,” a curved wood wall wraps up the ceiling to create an abstract, whimsical tree canopy that assists with wayfinding as you move through check-in and into the waiting area. Expansive windows offer ample daylight and views of the garden, while pops of color emphasize destinations and help families navigate between clinics. Petal-shaped elements appear throughout — from the shape of the architectural skylights to the light fixtures and the experiential graphics — creating an integrated design inspired by nature.

When it comes to pediatric care, first impressions matter. Page's Nurture-through-Nature approach to design blurs the lines between the outdoors and indoors, creating a playful, kids-first atmosphere and setting the tone for this healing environment.

Walking into Children’s Center for Advanced Pediatrics, my granddaughter Kennedy, was wide-eyed at the openness, and for once, did not feel boxed-in like other doctor offices. She felt very at home in her surroundings.
