A group of healthcare administrators and designers spoke about how to design more comfortable healthcare facilities recently at the BOMA International’s 2019 Medical Office Buildings + Healthcare Real Estate Conference in Minneapolis.

Examples included:

* Controlling aromas and sound with floral arrangements and pleasant music or white noise

* Adding community space for team meetings, classes, music and other special events
