The results showed that the Maternal and Child Hospital (RSIA) is not only a health carefacility for mothers and children, but also offers comfort and aesthetics in the design of the physical environment. Theapplication of the concept of healing environment in the Mother and Child Hospital combines natural, sensory andpsychological aspects that aim to support adaptation to the environment and the physical condition of the patient in therecovery process.
