These are two frames from a reference we picked for a project. 

 

I have to film in a hospital and am trying to get a look similar to this.

 

High Key, Vibrant, Etc. 

 

In the piece they seemed to utilize a lot of window light that I don't believe I will have in most setups including a couple hallway walk and talk shots. 

 

How do I get a high key look when starting completely from scratch in a place with no windows?

Well lots of Kino Flos and good sized  frames are a good place to start. However, assuming you're not on a location, spacelights are cheaper for the overall illumination of the sets and then you can augment that with other units for definition.

If a space were lit with space lights, would kino flos still hold up in shaping or would you want to go heavier like a diffused joker 400 or 800?

Depends on your own style I suppose. Kinos would work fine closer in and be easier. (and on a studio you'd no reason to go daylight, this could all be tungsten as there's no windowlight). Were it me, I'd work with some  8x8 frames of light grid-- possibly with a 5K behind them or something of the sort.

Little or no daylight in a Hospital corridor.   Only daylight would spill from the open doorway of a patient's room.  Something to think about.
