Waiting rooms should be a supportive and engaging space whether they are located in a hospital, medical office building, physicians practice or urgent care center.

Below are some unique tips to consider when designing waiting rooms in a healthcare environment.

  • Introduce your facility by providing information on doctors, infrastructure upgrades and innovative or new care that is being provided.
  • Seating arrangements should be clustered, so both single patients and patients who brought guests along are accommodated.
  • Provide text updates to patients while they are in the waiting room.
  • Space should be open but with two sections - one section with a TV and another that is quiet for relaxation.
  • Chairs should have high armrests. This helps patients get in and out of chairs easily.
  • Natural light should be included as much as possible.
