This tranquil panorama harmonizes nature and the relationship the Munroe Regional Medical Center cultivates with the Ocala community, employees, and patients. This design welcomes visitors to a peaceful environment, offers an escape for patients dealing with serious health challenges, and provides beautiful views from doctors’ offices and staff dining. By combining several different design elements, this large regional hospital provides a peaceful escape from the worries of health challenges confronted within the building. Visitors enjoy a historical sculpture with a time capsule, an employee recognition walkway with engraved pavers, a cascading waterfall, a benefactor recognition walking path, a large figurative bronze sculpture, as well as pedestrian connections between spatial areas, a babbling brook with a pool, and a fieldstone waterfall which buffers a seating area situated by the falls.
