    I saw this article about design of hospitals from an aesthetic point of view and how this increases patient satisfaction. I thought it was interesting  about the therapeutic benefits of having a garden in the hospital that patients can walk through. Usually hospital visits are stressful for patients so by having a relaxing area that patients can go to can improve overall patient and family satisfaction. Take a look and let me know what you think!

    Great article! Thanks for sharing.

    I remember I read an article about a hospital in Minnesota which has a lot of great paintings and artworks donated by patients. That hospital just look like a museum!

    I recently visited Agrace Hospice in Madison, where each patient’s room had access to a nice outdoor patio. Rooms all had nice artwork and were very spacious. Given, the facility puts a very strong emphasis on comfort because all of their patients only have months left to live, but it was neat to see a healthcare facility have more of a hotel feel than a hospital one. Thanks for sharing!

    I recently visited a nursing home in Milwaukee, WI where the hallways and doors to the patients rooms were designed like a real neighborhood. There were street signs, mail boxes, flowers and “front porches”. I thought this was a great way for a nursing home to feel more like the real world.
