    Medical examinations in Catharina Hospital - Philips Lighting

    The right lighting

     

    The Catharina Hospital in Eindhoven is a leading teaching hospital in the Netherlands. With approximately 30 specializations and 500,000 patient contacts per annum, it is a nerve center for expert medical care and comprehensive medical training. The hospital is constantly striving to give better person-centered care while simultaneously improving staff productivity. But with budgets under pressure, it needed a cost-effective solution.

     

    Philips lighting had the perfect prescription. Our Ambient Experience system was specifically designed to improve care, by minimizing patient stress and anxiety during procedures. The system works by giving the patient a sensory distraction to focus on using lighting, sound, and the projection of images. Patients can even personalize their experience by choosing a theme such as a beach, mountains or a strip comic.

     

    With the Ambient Experience concept in place, patients at the hospital feel happier, meaning procedures can be carried out more quickly. A healthy improvement for staff and patients alike.

     

    The Ambient Experience concept was tailored to meet the exact requirements of Catharina hospital. Facility setup, staff needs, and patient requirements were all taken into consideration during design and implementation.
