Art and Healthcare
At some point in your life, no matter how healthy you are, you will end up in a hospital for some reason or another. No matter the level of service that you receive, there are elements of design that add or detract from the quality of your visit and can, in fact, be counterproductive to your healing process. However, healthcare design is changing. Art is less of an afterthought in the design decision-making process as the design community understands and promotes art’s value well beyond its visual appeal. According to a growing body of research, experiencing art lowers both employee and patient stress, increases employee and patient satisfaction, and helps create an ambiance that fosters a sense of comfort. So if you’re going to inevitably spend some time in the hospital, why not do it surrounded by thoughtfully curated art?
The Healthcare Design Conference is an event devoted to how the design of responsibly built environments directly impacts the operation, clinical outcomes, and financial success of healthcare facilities. TurningArt will have a booth at this year’s conference in New Orleans from November 3rd-5th to connect with and learn more about art’s role in healthcare design.From Mari, an Art Advisor at TurningArt
