Healthcare waiting rooms are being purposefully designed to offer a variety of destinations. Facilities are enhancing the overall experience by inviting patients & their families to reduce stress & find strength in whichever method suits them best.
Kimball Health offers a wide range of waiting room furniture that can be applied to the three most common destinations for recharging in a healthcare environment.
Connection. Space which allows multiple family members to sit together & have a comfortable conversation outside of the patient room. Technology supports families to connect remotely in addition to face-to-face conversation.
Respite. When loved ones need time & space to turn their minds off, correctly designed seating destinations provide areas that alleviate stress.
Rejuvenation. Cafe spaces & seating arrangements located throughout an expansive hospital, radiate positive energy and are a great space for families to visit when they need a little boost.
By identifying locations for each of these destinations, healthcare facilities are able to provide their visitors with the best possible experience.

Competition within the healthcare market is continuing to grow. So it is crucial, now more than ever, to design facilities that cater to patients & their family members.
