Unicel Architectural to host webinar on design for optimal healing environments in hospitals


Unicel Architectural announced that it will be presenting a webinar entitled: “Patient Privacy & Tranquility: Creating Optimal Healing Environments”, Wednesday, April 11th, 2018 at 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm Eastern Time. The webinar is an American Institute of Architects (AIA) Continuing Education Program presented by America Training Solutions and sponsored by Unicel Architectural. Credits earned on completion of this program will be reported to AIA/CES for AIA members and to GBCI for USGBC members.

“Patient privacy and tranquility are top priorities for healthcare facilities to reduce stress and promote healing,” said Octavio Valdivia, Unicel Director and webinar instructor. “Recent studies have shown that excessive noise, glare, and lack of privacy can create stress in patients of all ages, which significantly impedes the healing process. More and more healthcare design professionals are now specifying design elements that promote privacy and tranquility – all while underscoring hygiene.”
