'Patient Room of the Future' Speeds Healing

LOCAL HEALTHCARE EXECUTIVE SPEAKS IN DALLAS ON THE PATIENT ROOM FOR THE FUTURE

NASHVILLE, Tenn., April 1 /PRNewswire/ -- The environment in which a patient heals is critical to their recovery, and the Patient Rooms of the Future must change to meet that need, said Victor Rumore, Chairman of Wellness Environments speaking at a healthcare conference in Dallas last week.

Rumore addressed the national conference on Planning and Designing the Patient Room of the Future regarding advances in design and their impact on patient healing. Rumore emphasized the need to rethink hospital room design, construction and renovation.

"Imagine something as basic and simple as a patient's hospital room being able to make patients recover faster, return to their homes and families quicker, and improve patient satisfaction all at the same time," Rumore said.

"Then imagine a room that empowers patients and gives them more control over their environment, a room that nurses love to work in because they can be more productive, a user-friendly room for all hospital caregivers. That's what the Patient Room of the Future must provide."

Wellness Environments has been at the forefront of patient room design and has created the "Patient Room for the Future" to aid healing while at the same time, reducing hospitals' operating costs. The company, in conjunction with architects, designs, integrates and installs complete turnkey interiors into clinical spaces for hospitals, using evidence-based design principles.

Drawing on his company's twelve years of experience, Rumore described the room's benefits for the hospitals' ownership and management, which include a 50% increase in speed to completion, total flexibility and improved infection control.

"This revolutionary patient room can be built in days instead of weeks, generating revenues long before traditional rooms are completed. If the needs of the hospital change and the room must be converted for another purpose, the room is flexible and relocatable."

Rumore went on to say, "We believe that hospitals should be 100% committed to being patient-focused, because if you are patient-focused, everything else falls into place."

Wellness Environments was founded in 1996 in Nashville and has over 500 installs worldwide. More information is available at
