“Aesthetics is unique. They listen to what the client wants, and then creatively develop and implement the project. Their ability to assist in developing an organization’s vision is wonderful!”

Blair Sadler, Past President
Rady Children’s Hospital, San Diego, CA

Designing an effective interior space for the journey of healing requires an in-depth understanding of the rigors and needs of healthcare. Our experienced, knowledgeable and talented team of designers create interior spaces that are warm and inviting, aesthetically pleasing, performance-driven and cost-effective. Whether we are updating an existing space, developing master plans, or starting from scratch with new construction, we design from a holistic perspective, creating spaces that support patients, families and staff.

Since 1980, Aesthetics has collaborated with more than 400 companies, including some of the largest and best-known healthcare organizations in the United States and Canada, and with numerous major architects and artists around the world. Originally established to provide art for hospitals and medical clinics, the firm has since established itself as a leader in the field of wayfinding, donor recognition, and healthcare interior design. In 2009, Aesthetics founder Annette Ridenour co-authored a book with Blair L. Sadler, Transforming the Healthcare Experience through the Arts. Annette is also a founding member of the Planetree Network and a key proponent of generative space.
