Art can be a useful tool in hospitals—much more than mere decoration. It can be used to reduce patient stress and increase patient satisfaction. Art can also help with wayfinding and building the hospital brand. Selecting the right artwork is not easy. Find out the critical issues being faced today when placing art into healthcare facilities.
The Green Road Project: Healing Via Nature for Wounded Warriors
Frederick Foote, M.D.Project Manager
The Green Road Project
The Green Road Project creates a half-mile long green corridor and wheelchair path and a 1.7-acre central woodland healing garden through the campus of Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, Bethesda, MD. The goal is to bring the healing benefits of nature to U.S. service members and their families, particularly those with brain injury and PTSD. The $6 million public/private partnership, with TKF Foundation as the lead donor, began construction in February 2016 and will open in September 2016. Funded research will use advanced metrics to directly measure whole-body effects of nature exposure. The Green Road will be a long-term national laboratory on the interface between humans and nature.

An interdisciplinary team of Philips designers, clinicians and data analysts was tasked by Westchester Medical Center to conduct a feasibility study on a local hospital in order to assess the effectiveness of their current facilities and understand existing community perceptions, with the goal of creating a roadmap for future development after a potential merger. Although the effort was initially intended to be completely ‘undercover’, it quickly evolved into a catalyst for both sides to build a relationship and rally around.Come join us and learn about the resulting masterplan that positions the hospital campus for future growth, creates multiple points for community engagement and offers improvements to the staff, patient and family experience.

Rubber flooring provide a sound focus on actionable impact as it relates to outcomes and reimbursables centered on operational optimization, clinical efficiency, safety, sustainability and patient/caregiver satisfaction.
