Noise has an important effect on comfort and healing. For regional and community hospitals, outpatient clinics, and specialized care centres, good acoustical design can limit noise and help patients feel more at ease in treatment or assessment spaces. Acoustical design for healthcare facilities also includes optimizing speech privacy and intelligibility, which, in turn, can help improve communication among care providers, patients, and visiting friends and family.
At BKL, we have provided acoustical consulting services on a variety of healthcare projects. Take a look at the case studies below to learn more about our experience with healthcare acoustics.
