Adding A Touch of Nature

“Everyone loves the beautiful garden scene on the Sereneview privacy curtains, and patients do not feel like they are in a hospital. The quality of the fabric really helps with privacy – you cannot see through the fabric, and it reduces sound.”
First impressions go a long way for any business. To put their best foot forward, Simi Surgery Center in Simi Valley, CA, opened with Sereneview® Tranquility Landscape curtains in their Pre and Post-OP areas. Recently, they exchanged those scenes for new Sereneview Windowframe curtains, and installed Sereneview Scenic Overheads in the overhead light fixtures, including the GI Lab.
“I do not remember how I found Sereneview, I am just glad I did!” says Cindy Boyle, RN CNOR, the Surgery Center’s General Manager “We are an ambulatory center, and it is nice having surgery in a pretty place.
“Everyone loves the beautiful garden scene on the Sereneview privacy curtains, and patients do not feel like they are in a hospital. Patients and families always comment on how relaxed they are, and they appreciate the special detail.
“The quality of the fabric really helps with privacy – you cannot see through the fabric, and it reduces sound. As the person in charge of setting up the Surgery Center and spending our capital funds, I wanted to make sure we did not waste money.
“We wanted a curtain that would absolutely maintain the sterile environment, in a cost-effective manner. I did not want to have to tell shareholders that I had to repurchase new curtains because the curtains did not provide the kind of safety and privacy we expected.
“Your customer service was outstanding. I was uncertain at first, but you sent me a curtain panel so I could feel it, see it in person, and ask others in the medical field what they thought of the curtain. Everyone who saw the curtain just loved it. I feel the money that spent for Sereneview curtains was worth every dime.”
