    Learn how a Well-designed healthcare premise helps to improve care in a healthcare premise.

    Patient care is the most important part of any healthcare facility which drives the healthcare design. Therefore, the design trends of healthcare facilities need to be focused more on patients. We have all come across this term patient experience but how do we go about building the patient experience? When designing a healthcare premise, the goal for the architect, designer, contractor, and consultant is to provide a space in which people feel safe, comfortable and confident in the care they receive. It should also help to provide psychological aid, reduce the considerable patient stress, attain higher patient safety and satisfaction as well as increased market value.

    A good interior design plan includes the right selection of materials as the choices in materials can make or break a healthcare environment. The right materials go a long way to make the design successful and Goodrich Global Pte Ltd is a one-stop place for all the material needs. A good interior design plan includes particular specifications such as the indoor design, outdoor decking, ceiling, flooring, wall finish, and other accent pieces and furnishings. Read on to find out some of the things to look for when searching:

    Establish a clear vision – The key to designing a good healthcare premise is proper planning. The more clearly you can envision your project, the more hassle-free the outcome would be. The project team and the owner must be on the same page to align the materials to be used. Understanding the vision and mission of the owner is important in designing a state-of-the-art healthcare environment.

    Design development – Comfortable environments that feel more like a home than a medical facility are becoming the standard. Choosing materials is a particularly important design decision at the planning stage of a healthcare premise. This is the stage wherein the project team and the owner can discuss the details starting from the bigger areas to the minute details. Each detail will be based on the function of a specific area. Today, beauty and comfort are viewed as just as important to a patient’s well-being as a sterile environment is. Color, lighting, materials, and textures can soften the clinical and institutional feel often associated with patient units. This is the stage in which the flooring (wood, carpet tiles, or vinyl flooring) and wallpaper can be zeroed down on as well as the indoor and outdoor facilities, patient safety and sustainability need to be considered.

    Material Selection – After the finalisation of the materials, the company providing the needs of the healthcare facility should adhere to the standard of products selected. It is of prime importance to consider all the details and materials to be used in every corner of a healthcare facility right at this stage as the company supplying materials need to stick to the materials and budget discussed. The materials used in a healthcare premise must be easy to handle, have a long lifespan and must be able to withstand high traffic.

    Final discussion – The final stage would include discussion of the interior furnishing with the supplier of the complete materials. Single-sourcing through Goodrich Global Pte Ltd can help owners avoid confusion, stick to the budget and build faster. Having a company that provides an organised set of materials both for interior and outdoor needs is a valuable tool in building a healthcare facility with high quality and safety standards. A final list of materials must be created based on the requirement of each area and their specifications.
