The benefits of employee-centered design
from Healthcare Design
The benefits of employee-centered design don’t begin and end with the employee. Efforts ranging from providing staff with opportunities for exercise to quiet places to work all contribute to a sense of self-worth and self-control, which can influence how patient care is delivered. Both patients and staff need to be happy and feel well-cared-for in today’s healthcare climate, A new focus on employee work and respite areas addresses both patient satisfaction concerns and employee recruitment needs. “[Providers] are wanting to be creative with how they do it. It’s not money-giving space, but it’s part of attracting personnel,” says Paul Strohm, senior vice president and global healthcare practice director for HOK (St. Louis).
