Providing thermal comfort in a health care setting is particularly challenging because the ideal comfort zone of those in patient rooms, doctor’s spaces, waiting areas, and highly controlled environments don’t overlap. This panel will address this perpetual challenge hospitals face as they work to best meet the comfort needs of key occupants. The panel will discuss field observations and share a series of recommendations. The discussion will also cover the intersection of the WELL Building Standard, thermal comfort, and health care design.
