Completed in 2005, Marywood Health Center (MHC), the health care facility for the Dominican Sisters ~ Grand Rapids models its healing ministry after that of Jesus by providing quality health care for residents.

Designed by the Perkins Eastman firm, the MHC was designed and built to meet LEED NC-Silver criteria. Natural cork flooring for some areas, carpets made with plant fibers and backing from other natural products were chosen. Conservation of water is accomplished by re-circulating water throughout the building.

In 2006, the MHC was winner of Environmental Design + Construction’s Excellence in Design Award in the category of Multi-Family Residence. Read the article here.

In 2007, the MHC was featured in the annual Design issue of Nursing Homes Magazine. Read the article here.
