Nature is a powerful ally in the healthcare environment.
Improving the bottom line can be realized with a little nature.
Shorter bed stays, use of less potent pain medication, and fewer post-procedure complications are just a few of the proven results from access to nature. Clearly this can go a long way toward customer choice and positive patient satisfaction surveys as well as the bottom line.
Gardens are a great tool for attracting top healthcare staff or retaining current employees.
Healthcare workers profess they find themselves more focused, relaxed, and happier at facilities with gardens and other natural amenities they can use during breaks.
Whether you are renovating an existing facility or building new, capitalize on the benefits of a natural setting in your healthcare setting through thoughtful planning of views, outdoor spaces, and plantings around your facility.
