Prem Nath shed light on aesthetically planning hospital space with a special theme for each floor as per the wards so as to ease the trauma associated with hospitalization. He maintained that a healthcare building employ the latest technologies, patient-centered care and evidence-based design to assist in healing patients and improving clinical outcomes. Architectural features such as inclusion of soothing water features, the expansive gardens/ courtyards not only allow occupants to experience the tranquility of the site, but create places that build a sense of community within the setting by fostering human interaction. The integration of landscaping into stacked building layers is definitely necessary.

The different zone in the hospital to be identified by varied architectural elements. Apart from the regular wards, hospital should have a Quiet Activity Area, Family Lounge, The Parents’ Lounge- which is “kid-free” zone etc. with comfortable setting to create lounge-like banquette seating.
