Whimsical Windows - Center for Cancer Care



For Toby's fun architectural meme, Whimsical Windows/Delirious Doors, I return merely to yesterday to the Griffin Hospital Center for Cancer Care in Derby Connecticut. We were there for the fourth annual 5K walk/run to benefit for the center. After we on Patti's Team McVillers team as well as the other 36 other teams completed the event, I used the phone to capture the entrance to this beautiful facility. 


Opened in 2009, the subtle stone and hardwood styled trim is soothing on the eyes as one enters - and it is just is comfortable on the interior where treatment occurs...A great fundraising event, nice weather and nice looking building made for a great day!

I really like the way hospitals - and especially cancer care facilities - have improved their appearance to be less institutional looking.

Lovely shiny clean windows! Nice shots and well done for supporting such a wonderful cause.

That's unusual for a hospital to have such a warm and inviting entrance like this!

Very beautiful - I'm sure that the thought they put into making this welcoming on the outside translates into thoughtful patient care. Thanks for sharing! And way to go, all of you, on the 5K!
