Healthcare Design: Care-Centered Workplaces

Providing a good quality of care is the primary objective of any healthcare facility. Quality of care issues in hospitals have been linked to many aspects of design: from poor room design, a lack of ergonomics, too high noise levels, or long distances from nursing units to patient rooms1. A well-designed healthcare workplace and environment can result in considerable improvements in clinical outcomes, economic performance, productivity as well as patient and staff satisfaction.
