Infusion center uses design to create calming environment

February 9, 2017

Infusion Express' recently opened Chicago-area facility was designed to provide a calm and welcoming atmosphere to patients, according to an article on the Health Facilities Maintenance website.

The facility has a mix of private space and family rooms, so the patient can bring a friend or family members, read a book, watch TV, or sit and talk with other patients.

The design has dark wood-grain floors, walls painted in soft, neutral hues and Buddhist images throughout.
