Did you know that 57% of patients have negative comments about their hospital room? While this may not seem important, consider this: positive healthcare design can not only increase patient satisfaction, but also foster healing.
“Arts in health care programs and creative arts therapies have been applied to a vast array of health issues—from posttraumatic stress disorder to autism, mental health, chronic illnesses, Alzheimer’s and dementia, neurological disorders and brain injuries, premature infant care, and physical disabilities—to improve patients’ overall health outcomes, treatment compliance, and quality of life.” – A 2009 State of the Field report.
Numerous studies have found that positive healthcare interior design can distract patients from the challenges of treatment and can positively affect treatment outcomes. Aesthetics play an important role in the healing process. Incorporating art and other aesthetically pleasing accent pieces throughout healthcare facilities can help create a calming experience for patients.
