A hospital that doesn't feel like a hospital.

While visiting my brother-in-law at Maple Grove Hospital
, I was struck by how this is a hospital that doesn't feel like a hospital. There is no institutional feel to the building, and as a perk, it is LEED
certified, too. The building felt comfortable for me and the patients I talked with really liked the feel of the building, as well. Everywhere I went, I felt comfortable and safe. Local contractor D.J. Kranz Company
has done a wonderful job of creating a really beautiful facility.
(One important note: if you decide to take a photo in a hospital for an article and then post the photo to Facebook, people will freak out!)
