The art of designing patient-friendly hospitals

There's nothing convenient about going to a sprawling hospital campus. It's hard to find parking. You might struggle to find the entrance to the main hospital. And once you're in? You often have to wander a maze of halls to get where you need to go. But it doesn't have to be that way. Designers today are focusing on simplicity when they draft the plans for new medical facilities. And this trend is helping to make modern hospitals far more patient-friendly.

Changing patient demands mean business boost for healthcare developers

Here is what patients don’t want today: They don’t want to wait for hours for treatment at a sprawling hospital campus. They don’t want to spend an entire day waiting for X-rays or a diagnosis from a swamped emergency room doctor. Instead, patients are increasingly seeking treatment away from central hospitals and at stand-alone clinics or outpatient treatment centers.
