Rutland Regional Medical Center: Meditation Room

Rutland, Vermont

Project Type: Health Care
  • OWNER: Rutland Regional Hospital
  • ARCHITECT: Lavallee Brensinger

Location on the hospital’s first floor, “Main Street” corridor, RRMC’s new Meditation Center provides a serene and peaceful sanctuary for patients, families, and staff to use for contemplation or quiet conversation with loved ones, social workers, or healthcare providers. The décor is comfortable, soothing, and non-denominational.

The work on this room was completed while the hospital and Main Street corridor were operating, and temporary barriers helped reduce the amount of construction activity stay in one area. H.P. Cummings and our subcontractors demolished the existing space in the hospital to make room for the Wolk Meditation Room with all new finishes (painting, wallpaper, flooring, wall paneling, translucent wall panels, and a wood slat ceiling). We also installed a new speaker system, lighting that can be dimmed and turned on in specific places, and ample outlets throughout. The mechanical system was replaced to provide adequate heating and cooling for the room’s occupants.

“I just want to take a minute to officially thank you for the awesome work in the Meditation Center at RRMC. Honestly, your level of effort, the time you spend on all of the details, the way you have just quickly learned about how we like things, your communication, your positive attitude and the love and caring you put into this project has been exceptional. The family for whom this Meditation Center is dedicated and the donors are so impressed with you and your team. They firsthand saw the love and caring you put into the project as they stopped by from time to time. Thank you for making every detail perfect and for the passion you have leading your team. I am incredibly proud that you are part of our team and so happy to work and learn from you. On behalf of all of us at RRMC – superb job done! Thank you so much!”
