As Samaritan - a regional leader for hospice, grief support, palliative care, and primary care at home in New Jersey – approached their 40th anniversary, the organization began to consider how their environment could reflect the life-enhancing care the organization is known for. Having outgrown its previous space and needing a more accessible location to provide a comfortable and inspiring office for its employees and volunteers, Samaritan partnered with Office Basics Interiors and Design Firm Kitchen Associates along with the HON Company to reflect their Philosophy of Care.
The inspiration behind Samaritan’s office renovation began with the employees and volunteers who work tirelessly to uphold the organization’s mission: “To provide extraordinary compassion and professional expertise to help our patients, clients, and those who care about them live their best life every day.” With that guiding light, the journey to design a bright, fresh, and contemporary space for employees and volunteers alike began. With Samaritan’s brand in mind, a vibrant color palette inspired by nature now infuses collaborative and private office spaces and creates a serene and soothing counseling and healing environment.
“We recognize the unity of life and our connectedness with each other, those we care for, our community, and our world.” - excerpt from Samaritan’s Philosophy of Care
“Samaritan has always been dedicated to an inclusive, team-oriented environment. As we launch our plans for safely returning to the office, we look forward to hosting meetings, support groups, and trainings. This renovation has revitalized our new administrative office and Samaritan’s executive leadership team looks forward to welcoming our employees and volunteers into this modern and friendly environment to continue our important mission of serving the community.” - Mary Ann Boccolini, Samaritan President and CEO
