Mader Design provided an analysis and recommendations for the hospitals main campus landscape. Reid Hospital wanted a four season landscape with continuous interest throughout the year. With previous planting plans and onsite observations of an already extensive landscape, Mader Design performed a full analysis to reveal areas that would require additional or alternate plant species to fill any gaps in seasonal interests. Considerations were given to flower, foliage, berry, and branch colors, the time of the year they appear or change, branching patterns and form of the species. Reid Hospital was provided with concept designs for several areas around the campus with a list of recommended species and an estimate for maintenance costs.

During the analysis of the main campus Reid Hospital realized the benefit of obtaining the same analysis and recommendations for another 15 of their 19 properties across three counties in Indiana. Upon completion of these Mader Design was called upon to provide construction documentation packages for both the main campus and several of their other facilities.

Reid Orthopedic Center was renovated in 2013 with an addition to the building and parking lot at the rear. Located within view from the interstate I70, Reid Hospital wanted the center to have a landscape that would be visible and eye catching from the interstate and have year-round interest as with the main hospital campus. Mader Design provided construction documentation for the site including parking lot screening and shading, entry feature and monumental signage plantings, a patio space for staff use, prairie plantings and retention pond bank plantings.

Greenville MOB is a new facility and continues our work with Reid. We provided detailed design work for people spaces throughout the campus, including staff break areas and a large entry plaza that will serve as a respite for patients, family, doctors, and staff. Fountains, seat walls, intricate paving patterns and landscape materials all create a warm welcoming place. We also provided design work for landscaping throughout the campus.
