Fairview Lakes Medical Center

Visiting the doctor isn’t typically something that children enjoy, but the revamped play areas at Fairview Lakes Medical Center in Wyoming, MN make the inevitable doctor visit so much better. The outdoor landscapes reflective of the Minnesotan culture featured in the murals resonate with patients and contribute to stress reduction and pain mitigation. Children hop on the ground like frogs as their imagination takes them away from their aches and pains and leads them to a place of comfort and playfulness. Children are exhilarated with creativity as they crawl in and out of the kid-size cabin inspired by the whimsicality of Dr. Seuss. The imaginative and creative play structures combined with the biophilic design elements truly transform the healing experience of the patients receiving care at Fairview Lakes Medical Center.
