For the seventh year in a row, Elmhurst Hospital has been nominated to participate in Soliant Health's Top 20 Most Beautiful Hospitals Contest. Soliant is a leading specialty health care staffing provider and part of the Adecco Group.

The Most Beautiful Hospitals are determined by an online public vote, which runs through June 29. To vote for Elmhurst Hospital, visit soliant.com/hospitals-2018 or eehealth.org/mostbeautiful. The winners, to be announced Friday, July 6, are determined by popular vote. There is no limit to the number of times a person can vote.

The description of Elmhurst Hospital on the Soliant website reads, "Elmhurst Hospital, part of Edward-Elmhurst Health, was designed with the Planetree philosophy in mind. Here are five reasons why we are most beautiful: 1. Our use of Prairie-style architecture and earth-tone color palette brings the healing environment to light. 2. Warm wood fixtures, natural lighting and multiple campus gardens make our location inviting. 3. The building is set in a garden of greenery, complete with warming water features, sparkling ponds and healing gardens that provide a welcoming atmosphere. 4. Inpatient suites include soothing colors, natural wood, stone and fabrics, cheerful tile and images of nature. 5. The use of music therapy throughout the hospital helps make our environment less intimidating and more comforting. Our hospital is uniquely warm and a comfortable place for everyone who enters."

Elmhurst has made Soliant Health's 20 Most Beautiful Hospitals list the last six years, ranking fifth in 2012, second in 2013, 16th in 2014, eighth in 2015, and second in 2016 and 2017.
