Design Impact Movement
Place healing of patients at the core of hospital design

Non-human centric hospital designs reinforce negative associations with the idea of hospitals, for both patients and families. It creates a high-stress environment that exacerbates patient stress and discomfort. Studies show that well-designed hospitals that place patients at their core could reduce anxiety and stress, speed up the recovery process, and shorten future hospitalizations. Can you help drive change in the way our hospitals feel?
