Healthcare facilities are a laboratory of experimentation in interior design as executives and managers seek to meld state-of-the-art medical technology with spaces that contribute to patient healing and visitor comfort.

Now, a new project in Flushing, New York, slated for delivery in late 2021 is set to become a landmark for top-quality healthcare in the area, according to Fierce Healthcare. The Eastern Mirage Medical Center, connected to the five-star Eastern Mirage Hotel, will help satisfy increased patient demand for state-of-the-art medical facilities, propelling the associated practices and medical institutions to enhance business growth.

This medical center represents the outcome of more than 10 years of design and planning and incorporates the most advanced technology available to hospitals — critical selling points considering the pressure physicians face in attracting and retaining high-income patients after a tumultuous year. 

The concept of the Eastern Mirage Medical Center reveals the symbiotic relationship potential for medical offices and hospitality and seeks to create a steady flow of travelers for the hotel, as well as a more welcoming, hospitality-inspired setting for the medical office itself, according to the developer, Fleet Financial Group’s Richard Xia.
