Spaces for Healing


A growing body of research demonstrates that patient outcomes are significantly influenced by the physical setting and environmental quality of a healthcare facility.1 Medical professionals make better decisions, the standard of care rises, and patients heal more quickly in a well-designed environment. In addition, it can reduce patient anxiety, lower blood pressure and shorten hospital stays. The importance of good design in healthcare cannot be overstated. Healthcare buildings are complex spaces that incorporate high-level technology to fulfil a range of functions. An effective design integrates these functional requirements with the human needs of patients, visitors and staff. This is not to mention the complex set of regulations, codes and standards that must be adhered to when designing such buildings. Every component of a healthcare building contributes to the quality of the interior environment. Building owners, facilities managers, healthcare architects and all others involved in the design process must consider how the materials used within the building shape the user experience, including the air quality, acoustic comfort, perceptions of safety and security, and even concern about sustainability.
