Scanias University Hospital
With nearly 1,800 beds, and 12,500 employees, the Malmö University Hospital is the third largest hospital in Sweden. A new radiotherapy suite features a Varian Medical Systems linear accelerator for treatment of cancer tumors, and a Sky Factory Luminous SkyCeiling as a biophilic element to make patients more comfortable.
Realistic nature murals have been shown to reduce stress and calm patients in healthcare environments. Sky Factory’s superior illusions of nature can trigger the same relaxation responses that one has while appreciating a pleasant sunny sky. The hospital staff and patients are very positive about the virtual skylights.
