Rijnstate has been paying more and more attention to healing environments since 2008. The healing environment concept originates from the USA and its basic principle is that a carefully designed environment has a beneficial effect on the well-being of the patient. The advantages include a generally shorter hospital stay, reduced medication requirements and a better experience for the patient. The Rijnstate Hospital aims to offer its patients a transparently organized environment without stress factors. Color and art - at floor level as well as on the walls - provide a pleasant distraction.
