Institute for Patient-Centered Design, Inc.

Design with Patients in Mind

Patient-Centered Design is a principle that should be in the forefront of any health facility project.  It is a philosophy by which building owners and their design teams create and develop spaces to be used by patients.  This principle takes into account the needs of patients and their families and methods for delivering the best care to them.
