OZG Hospital

Enhancing Acoustic Comfort for Patients

A project to replace two hospitals with a new, sustainable facility in the northern village of Scheemda, the aim for the Ommelander Ziekenhuis Groningen was to create space to aid healing: natural daylight, a balance between privacy and openness, and – crucially – addressing the World Health Organization’s recommendations for lower sound levels.

In enhancing acoustic comfort for patients and personnel alike, the team turned to a combination of MINERAL Sonic Element, MINERAL Baffle Element, PERLA OP 0.95* and MEDIGUARD Acoustic* ceiling systems throughout the hospital. This acoustic solution worked to mute the hustle and bustle of the busy hospital, ensuring occupants could work, rest, heal and recover in peace.
