Pregnant women are the most valuable contributors to healthcare business given that they are required to follow-up for future healthcare needs and are accompanied by partners and family. Throughout the duration of inpatient stay, a first impression widely contributes to amazing patient retention rates, and mouth publicity for your business.
Although medical science has developed most advanced drugs for so many gynec conditions, one thing to keep in mind is that mental health plays a major role in overcoming issues related to reproductive health in women. In this regard, this write-up exclusively discusses the effect of interior design in gynaecology healthcare spaces, in general and expectant mothers in particular.
It is not rocket science when we say reproductive health is directly proportional to the balance of mental, physical and intellectual health of a woman – which means body, mind and emotions. Given the stressful lifestyle of modern women, the number of visits to gynec healthcare spaces has dramatically risen across the globe over the last two decades – as well as a rise in high-risk pregnancies and premature childbirths.
More number of visits means more financial profits – also resulting in more stress to maintain good patient retention and patient flow.
In the words of Alena Sakalouski, leader for women’s health at HDR (Minneapolis), “Childbirth is increasingly being seen as more of a normal life event than a medical condition that has to be treated, so patients are expecting to see more of a relaxing environment”.
Gynec healthcare facilities not only involve obstetrics services, but also include areas for child care such as Neonatal Intensive Care Units (NICUs) for critical care, infant care units among others. Mandatory areas include labor and delivery rooms, spacious toilet rooms, operating and postpartum rooms, NICUs, special care child, and newborn child nurseries, family rooms and sleep areas among others.
