How Healthcare Facilities Can Improve Patient Outcomes

“Regional art is a necessity. Local art prompts memories, releases endorphins, and, in turn, anxiety goes down.” *

EvidenceBased Design (EBD) is the process of basing decisions about the built environment on credible research to achieve the best possible outcomes.

In recent years, Evidence-Based Design in facilities has led the way in renovation and new construction of healthcare facilities across North America.

At Rimrock Art & Frame, we have placed thousands of pieces of artwork in healing environments across Montana and Wyoming, all based on the EBD process. The artwork package our team selects for your facility is based on achieving benefits through reduced patient anxiety, pain reduction and staff retention, all resulting in shorter hospital stays and increased overall satisfaction.

Current studies show that there is a strong demand for nature-based artwork and photography in healing environments. From their book “Putting Patients First”, Roger Ulrich and Laura Gilpin summarize their findings for the best art for healthcare as follows:

Representational landscapes
Calm water
Calm weather
Visual depth with openness in the foreground
Warm season landscapes
Landscapes with low hills and distant mountains.

Rimrock Art & Frame is uniquely positioned to furnish beautiful Montana themed landscape and nature images through our local partner photographers who furnish us with stunning Montana and Wyoming imagery. We also partner with local artists who can furnish original art and/or print reproductions, again with a nature-based theme.

Whether your project is still in blue-print form or you’re in need of a rush order, we’re here for you and would love to be a member of your team!

WE CAN ALSO HELP WITH:

  • PLAN REVIEW
  • BUDGETING
  • PACKING AND SHIPPING
  • DELIVERY AND INSTALLATION

You’ve worked hard to provide a caring, compassionate, healing environment for your patients and guests. Let’s make sure the art on your walls is working towards the same goal.
