“Healing Architecture” is a term used for designing an interior, which improves health and increases healing times in clinics and hospitals. The issue is a currently a hot topic in Germany, and the organization Health Care Bayern e.V. now hosts a session dedicated to the subject.

For years Hudevad Radiators has worked on developing hygienic, easy-to-clean radiators for hospitals and healthcare facilities with the goal of improving the overall interior climate and reducing the length of hospital stays. As a contributing member of Health Care Bayern, our participation in the April session is self-evident.

Numerous studies show that “healing architecture” contributes greatly in reducing the length of patients’ hospitals stays. Not only is this obviously beneficial to patients, there is also a significant financial benefit for the hospitals if the average number of days in which a patient is admitted can be reduced.

Health Care Bayern’s session on hospitals of the future and healing architecture takes a good look at healthcare acquired infections and how they can be avoided, and explores the concept and the architecture behind the 16  Danish “super hospitals”. Hudevad Radiators own advisor in hygiene related matters, Dr Pia Kiil Nielsen, is one of the keynote speakers.
