HOW TO CHOOSE ART FOR YOUR HEALTHCARE FACILITY
The benefits of artwork in healthcare settings are well-documented, and Northeast Ohio is leading the way. Our patients experience first-hand the physical and emotional effects of well-curated healing art collections present throughout our major healthcare systems. With the sharp increase of healthcare facility construction in our region, it is no surprise that artwork has become an important consideration for local architecture firms, interior designers and owner/investors of assisted living projects. Capitalize on our experience sourcing artwork for local assisted living & memory care facilities with the following tips.
NATURE ART & LANDSCAPES ARE LEADING THE WAY
Patient studies indicate that scenic nature and landscape artwork encourage feelings of comfort for patients in healthcare settings. Aiming to create a positive first impression and reduce stress should be top priorities of healthcare art. We recommend considering colorful images that evoke memories of a peaceful moment in time or place. Through our relationships with several major art publishers, we would love to help you source a collection of images to choose from that achieve your facility's goals.
CONSIDER THE BENEFITS OF A LOCAL COMPANY
Local galleries have several advantages over online options available to you. In addition to building a long-term working relationship, many local galleries offer site visits, ensuring your order will contain the appropriate number of pieces and correct sizes for your location. An ongoing local presence can be an indicator that a company provides high quality products and services, as they have a reputation to uphold within their local communities. They can bring insight and an understanding of your potential customers and are often connected with local photographers and historical associations. Finally, local galleries will be installing your artwork when the time comes. Bundling installation services with the purchase of your artwork means more accurate budgeting, product/quality guarantees, and perhaps more competitive bids than separating the two.
