Health Care Facilities

In the last decade the desire for natural products has exploded; whether it is organic food, mineral-based make-up or recycled paper. Man-made, mass-manufactured items that once were considered cheap and convenient now are being touted as excessively wasteful and short lasting. Feeling the benefits of the shift is the health care industry. The introduction of therapeutic gardens, walking paths, amenities to retain staff and the benefits of green infrastructure, highlight the constantly evolving patient requirements. Environments, both inside and out, are now part of the health care equation to maximize patient's health through the restorative healing benefits of environmentally planned health care facilities.
