The names of the buildings and services were simplified. Colors were associated to buildings to facilitate memorization and differentiation through salience.
A "spinal carpet" was also designed as a path on the ground floor connecting every key spot of the hospital to the most used pathways. The color of different pathways was consistent with that of their respective building.
User-assistance resources were made available along the "spinal carpet" pathways to make them easier to access and less stressful to navigate.
