Lighting that energizes staff and helps patients relax

    NatureConnect brings daylight into healthcare

    In hospitals, care centers, and clinics many rooms are windowless which has a negative impact on well-being. Patients are coming and going all day long to see nurses and doctors who spend long hours without access to daylight. Patients feel more relaxed, and staff is energized thanks to NatureConnect bringing the benefits of natural lighting indoors.


    Adding a view to the sky can play a key role in making your healthcare facility a more pleasant environment. ​


    Healthcare case studies

    Health care Meander medical
    Meander Medical Center, Amersfoort, the Netherlands
    Top clinical hospital Meander Medical Center in Amersfoort recently opened the renovated Eye Clinic. However, the new location is completely indoors, which meant there was a lack of direct daylight. The solution was found in NatureConnect, the lighting that mimics natural light all day long. NatureConnect gives energy and contributes to a feeling of well-being which is an important advantage, given the great pressure that healthcare workers face.

    Vredenbergh, Breda, the Netherlands


    Vredenbergh in Breda upgraded their nurse workstation with the help of NatureConnect lighting solutions. The lighting follows a 24-hour cycle that supports the nurses during the day, evening, and night shifts.
