Healthcare Interior Design: Designing the Evidence-Based Environment Practice, Research and Education

By kimberly


The New York School of Interior Design will host a presentation on Wednesday July 18th from 5:30 pm – 7:30 pm, introducing Healthcare Interior Design, one of the most important fields in our profession today, from the perspective of Evidence-Based design thinking – using specific examples from current research and best practices. The discussion will start with an illustrated lecture, followed up with a discussion and will conclude with a tour of NYSID’s award-winning LEED-Platinum Graduate Center facility, designed by Gensler.

The LEED-Platinum Graduate Center facility is featured in the July 2012 issue of Interiors & Sources

Attendees will include architects and interior design professionals, hospital, healthcare and medical facility practitioners as well as students interested in learning more about healthcare interior design.

Why Healthcare? The interior design of healthcare environments has shown to impact patient health, employee safety and wellbeing and to potentially mitigate medical error.

As a matter of fact, the New York School of Interior Design will launch a 1-year MPS in Healthcare Interior Design program  in the fall 2012.
