Imagine spending the night in an oversized suite-style room with floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking tranquil gardens or rolling green hills. As comfortable as it is quiet, the room is decorated in soothing earth and ocean tones with a large well-appointed bathroom, wall-mounted flat screen TV and plush sofa and easy chair.

No, this isn’t some luxury hotel. It’s a modern hospital room built to make patients happier, healthier and heal faster so they go home sooner.
