Three Critical Success Factors in Planning Healthcare Art Programs
Research has shown that appropriate artwork in the hospital setting can help reduce stress, the need for pain medication and length of stay. The principles of evidence-based design establish the foundation for selecting healthcare artwork. These guidelines indicate that nature is a healing element and that patients can be comforted when viewing familiar surroundings.
At Distinctive Art Source, all of our work is grounded in the principles of evidenced-based design. We help clients select artwork that is patient appropriate and facility appropriate. This often involves identifying images that reflect local landscapes, flora, fauna, recreation and lifestyles to create a familiar and comforting environment. We strive to customize each facility’s art program by selecting artwork that represents the community, the locale and the hospital’s guiding principles.
