This private medical facility in the city of Sint-Niklaas (BE) in which several medical doctors receive and treat their patients has a heart for the patient and for art.
For more than 7 years different collections of paintings and wallsculptures have been installed at the reception desk, in the waiting rooms and in the doctor’s private cabinets.
In 2009, a scottish study concluded that paintings in a doctor’s waiting room might contribute positively to the patients experience. A comfortable chair, magazines and some music in the background makes this practice a nice place to wait for the appointment.
A link to the study about the beneficial effects of art in healthcare
Art can bring the patient’s mind at ease and offers a positive distraction. The paintings are carefully chosen by the doctor’s and their staff and Bernice offers help when needed. By handing out extra information about the artist and explaining his/her work, difficult subjects or harmfull theme’s are avoided.
After installing every piece neatly, Bernice has one finishing touch to add: nameplates next to the work of art.
