The importance of integrating nature in the design and planning of our healthcare buildings and of listening to and learning from those who use them is explored in A Deeper Shade of Green, an exhibition at University Hospital Galway.

Presenting global and Irish examples alongside patient and staff testimonies, the exhibition takes its title from a publication by patients of Merlin Park University Hospital. Built for the open-air treatment of tuberculosis, as the isolated units of the former sanatorium were once again repurposed in preparation for a pandemic, and as its grounds await a new elective hospital, the exhibition highlights how nature, design, and clinical standards can coexist to enhance the hospital experience for everyone
