New Children’s Hospital Gets a Little IDS Magic

We’re taking a peek inside the Andalusia Clinics For Kids Wellness, a beautiful multi-level children’s hospital with IDS theming from top to bottom.

Andalusia Clinics For Kids Wellness is a facility for kids offering specialized pediatric clinics offering both dental and medical services, the Autism Wellness Center, education, and fun.

New Children’s Hospital Gets a Little IDS Magic

IDS had the pleasure of theming all four floors of the clinic, creating two play areas, reception areas, extensive murals on every floor, plus decor for the dining hall and mezzanine.

– Mahwish Baber, Operations Director

“We fell in love with the work IDS does the first time we saw it and knew it was perfect for our mission. Our clinic is dedicated to the health and developmental needs of kids. The facility is themed to attract kids and create a sense of well-being from the moment they walk through the doors.”

How Theming Has Helped This Clinic

“The theming has helped in every aspect of the clinic. Hiring pediatricians is no longer a challenge – once they set foot in the facility they want to work here because the decor speaks to our philosophy and dedication to helping kids. In terms of marketing, everything we do revolves around the theming. We’ve turned the 3D characters into mascots and even print them on the lab coats to make them look less ‘clinical’. All the photo ops have hashtags. Our promotional videos are so colorful. Not to mention what it has done for the kids.”

“The kids love the theming. The kids that visit us have started referring to the clinic as “The Fun Center” cementing our desire to make this a place of wellness and development, not a place they are forced to visit.”


What Issues Did Theming Solve in This Clinic

“My work on the clinic included research asking parents of children with different needs what was missing in their care to make our clinic more welcoming. After learning that members of the IDS team also have children with varying abilities I knew that they too had insight into what could make the clinic better. Their suggestions were invaluable, such as using silhouette murals within our autism ward, so that children who are uncomfortable with eye contact aren’t surrounded by characters.

“I really connected with my account manager Elizabeth as it was all about the kids, not trying to make a sale. We had the same goal in mind – to create a sense of well-being.”
