What makes wayfinding so important to a hospital’s bottom line?
The estimated costs for living with a poor and ineffective wayfinding program in a midsized facility of 350 - 400 inpatient beds, and approximately 600,000 square feet of interior space, ranges from $150,000 - $200,000 annually, (Zimring 1990). Adjusted for inflation, that number would be slightly over $400,000 today. These estimates are based upon loss of revenue for reallocation of time and the support necessary to shore up an inadequate wayfinding system. What goes into ca

In addition, the speed of technological advances frequently reduces the life cycle of new buildings, making them obsolete in years rather than decades. Most healthcare campuses evolve over time as a series of buildings and expansions, usually of differing architectural styles and construction that are cobbled together and ultimately become a maze of windi
