Nature has a huge impact on how we interact and respond in our environment. Greenery can improve our well-being, yet its absence can be destructive to our health.
Introducing proven Live Plant Wall systems are a hassle-free way to bring greenery back to health facilities; creating healthier, happier spaces for patients & staff.
Living Walls can be used internally & externally to:
- Create a communal healing garden
- Commemorate a donor
- Provide aesthetically pleasing privacy screens
- Visually enhance blank concrete walls
- Mask unwanted noise and improve air quality in the space
Our Living Walls in Ramsay Health Care's New State-of-the-Art facility at St Leonards are part of the Facility's design to "represent a space of life and and green to represent growth" (says CEO, Anne Mortimer) - view the project here.
Recent studies by World Building Council found that Hospital Facilities designed with health and well-being in mind have been found to deliver 8.5 per cent reduction in hospital stays, 15 per cent faster recovery rates, 22 per cent reduction in need for pain medication and an 11 per cent reduction in secondary infections. Living Plant Walls and Moss Walls have a massive impact on people!
In simple terms, Nature = Wellness. Wellness = Improved Health. Improved Health = Faster Healing Process. Faster Healing Process = Reduced In-Patient Treatment Times.
Fifth Estate, an industry reporting agency, states that integrating peoples’ needs and nature into hospital design produces benefits such as improved patient health outcomes, reduced length of stay, enhanced staff recruitment and retention, improved staff well-being and lower operating costs.
