Whitney Hendrickson, former Pediatric RN and current Healthcare Interior Designer at Perkins+Will shares her thoughts on what hospitals might look like in the year 2040. “I’m sure there will be smart footwalls, maybe an Alexa-style nurse call system, a way to take peoples’ weights through the floor and their blood pressure through the bed they are sitting in,” says Whitney. Tune into this and more on what it’s like to be a healthcare interior designer from the perspective of a former pediatric nurse on today’s episode of Healthcare Interior Design 2.0 - The Lightning Round.
