The new Cleveland Clinic Avon Hospital developed a model patient room through a design and research process that employed full-sized mockups, patient and caregiver interviews, and prefabricated room elements. The process engaged decision makers to address all aspects of design, from unit layout to room configuration to room lighting. The integration of research, design, and construction facilitated consensus among the stakeholders and provided data to inform innovative design solutions for a room that is a new model for the health system.
