The Story Behind Hospital Art
Look around the walls of your hospital and see if you can find a story. Can you tell anything about the lives of the people who live and work in your community? Do you feel connected to the people who created or are depicted in the artwork? If not, then you’re missing out on one of the most effective tools in creating a healing environment. If the art in your facility simply adorns the walls and complements the interiors with “evidence based” nature images, then you’ve only taken the first step in designing a positive patient experience.
