Transformative design for the healthcare sector requires an emphasis on sustainability and recognition of the relationship between medical services, environment, and diseases. Visionary thinking, connecting sustainability to health, and pollution prevention are critical components of the future of the healthcare industry.
Modern healthcare facilities are large consumers of resources and provide an opportunity to make changes that reduce the consumption of such resources. A well-planned sustainability vision advances social and economic goals, while focusing on design to improve quality and safety outcomes, staff turnover, length of stay, and patient and family satisfaction. At MarchLife we see design as a tool that drives healthcare outcomes for patients, staff, and the institution as a whole.
Designing, constructing, and managing a hospital in accordance with principles of smart development benefit the local community, the economy, and the environment. High performance healing environments improve quality of life for the public, while ultimately reducing the demand for health services.
