A Humanizing Healthcare Teaching Hospital in Mexico

Jul 01, 2003

Stress reducing design strategies for the future Universidad Panamericana Medical School Hospital depend on cultural familiarity, a sustainable environment, and hospitality to assure comfort and healing for inpatients and outpatients. Excellence in design, caring physicians, nurses and allied health professionals all reduce stress for patients and families at the Universidad Panamericana School of Medicine teaching hospital. Long after they graduate, Universidad Panamericana’s medical and nursing students will benefit from the holistic approach the design embodies. This new teaching hospital in Mexico City will enhance wellness and reduce stress among patients, families and staff.
