Barnes Jewish Hospital/Washington University Medical Center

Covering 164 acres, the Washington University Medical Center includes Barnes Jewish Hospital, St. Louis Children’s Hospital, Siteman Cancer Center and the Washington University School of Medicine. For 24 years straight, Barnes Jewish/ Washington University has ranked among the nation’s best hospitals by U.S. News & World Report, including a place on the prestigious Honor Roll in the 2017 Best Hospitals edition.

An ambitious campus renewal project has been completed with 2 new patient towers and landscape and lighting upgrades. CG has developed comprehensive wayfinding for the expanded campus that begins on the busy 6-lane highway and leads visitors to the correct entrances, parking garages and valet/drop-off locations. The signs highlight individual institutions while forming a cohesive system overall.
