Health Care Interior Design

Many health care organizations and hospitals are redesigning their facilities for the 21st Century with patient needs first. This means rooms and interiors of facilities are now designed with the patient's physical comfort, emotional support, involvement of friends and family as primary concerns of the initial design. Other concerns of the design include access for all, respect, coordination, information, communication and education.

Patient-Focused Hospital and Health Care Interiors

Nowadays, patient rooms are being wired for computer and internet access to patient records, larger windows for outside viewing while lying down, and seats that convert into beds for overnight stays by care partners.  In many hospital and health care environments, the plastic chairs and hard floors are now a memory, replaced with some of the comforts of home including kitchens for family and visitor use on various floors of the hospital.  What hospitals administrators have come to realize is that a happy patient, surrounded by supportive and comfortable loved ones, in a pleasant environment, is more inclined to get well sooner. 

Jaan Ferree Designs Interiors With Comfort and Healing in Mind

Jaan Ferree specializes in health care environments, for multiple rooms, patient and visitor use rooms, or other public or private spaces in the health care center in need of a new interior design.

Ferree's interior designs are meant to enhance the comfort and ease hospitals and health care centers and create a positive environment for healing. What we do to our environment, we do to ourselves. Nowhere is this principle played out more dramatically than in our hospitals, where doctors and nurses work the front lines against environmental illness--yet the very buildings in which they work forestall and unravel their efforts.

Doctor's Office Waiting Rooms

The waiting room of many physician's offices are a place where the public receives the first glimpse of a professional practice.  Because patients spend a great deal of time here, it is often the room that leaves a lasting impression for them.  Jaan Ferree has worked in numerous health care environments and knows how to create an interior that leaves the best impression on patients while creating a waiting room in sync with a practice's health care mission.  A waiting room interior design needs to feel comfortable, welcoming, and provide some entertainment or educational opportunity for the visitor.

Anti-bacterial or anti microbial flooring and furniture and special non-toxic paints or other materials can be used in  physician waiting rooms to improve indoor air quality and decrease the amount of toxins present. Color schemes and furniture can be utilized to help soothe visitors, and relax them, and take their minds from their illnesses.
