Emerging trends in the healthcare sector include:
• Healthcare facilities are seeking a stronger connection to their surrounding communities
• The walkability of campuses is getting attention
• Facilities are looking to increase the areas of respite
These trends support interacting with built environments, which can make healthcare facilities more enjoyable places.
Facilities are looking at how they can better serve the community by proactively encouraging healthy behavior, such as daily exercise, eating properly and putting a conscious focus on walkability, the article said.
