High-performing ceiling solutions can offer acoustic, infection control and aesthetic benefits that impact the critically vital functionality, safety, comfort, and overall atmosphere of healthcare facilities. From ceiling systems with excellent acoustic performance to cut down on noise to energy-efficiencies related to lighting and cooling, there is arguably no specification that has greater importance to the health of a building and its occupants. More so, a properly specified (and installed) ceiling system can help prevent common healthcare setting problems such as mold and infections due to enhanced cleanability and ease of maintenance. Often made of recycled and recyclable materials, and with a virtually unlimited palette of colors and design options, ceiling systems can offer a real boost toward creating an appealing and comfortable environment.

Learning Objectives:
  • Describe ways in which specifying high-performing ceilings—including stone wool tiles, metal ceiling panels, wood ceilings and suspension grid systems—can affect sustainability, daylighting, and other energy-efficiency goals within a range of healthcare environments.
  • Describe the role of a ceiling's acoustic ratings and the impact on occupant privacy and comfort within medical settings.
  • Discuss how ceilings systems affect infection control and maintenance within hospital and other healthcare environments, and the potential effect this has on patient care.
  • Identify a number of healthcare design options for ceiling systems and how they can help create an inviting setting where patients, staff and visitors feel increased satisfaction and comfort.
