clinic waiting area at the
University Health System

in San Antonio, Texas, is

healthcare facilities have evolved significantly in recent years, as
owners look to design as yet another way to differentiate themselves in the competitive
landscape. More subdued, neutral approaches of the past are now being complemented with bolder,
design-forward concepts finding a home in brand standards.
"Health systems are considering ways to strengthen brand identity across multiple locations and
how to attract patients," says Carolyn BaRoss, principal and firm-wide healthcare interior design
director for Perkins+Will (New York). "A philosophy and approach for how patients and visitors experience the institution, along with interior standards, not only help institutions manage facilities
across their real estate portfolios, but can also create a consistent and recognizable identity."
Additionally, she says when architecture is varied from facility to facility-especially because of
mergers and acquisitions-more design uniformity can be accomplished by establishing standards
that call for specific signage and brand messaging, colors and materials, furnishings and amenities,
and art programs. "So while specifics may shift from location to location, the overall essence of the
institutional brand is understood and consistent," she says.
Organizations are able to explore the possibilities of visual branding further thanks in part to new
offerings from product manufacturers that deliver striking colors, textures, and patterns-all while
still meeting the industry's requirements for durability and cleanability. Together, the result is
spaces that push the boundaries of what once defined healthcare. "The trend is for good design
regardless of project type, and this yields healthcare interiors that are inspiring," BaRoss says.
But that doesn't mean anything goes. Designers share some inside tips on how to ramp up aesthetics while still considering the intricacies of healthcare.
