We supported CH in Cholet with restructuring their emergency department, during the hospital strikes. By focusing our work on the "attention markers" scattered along the route, we were able to gradually design the ideal experience of patients, their relatives and carers.

Since the reform of the hospital services, the Cholet hospital centre has seen a considerable increase in the number of patients in its emergency department. To alleviate this overcrowding, the hospital management wanted to adopt an approach that went beyond the necessary paint job, by thinking of the future emergency layout in terms of the journey and experience of patients and their families. Against the backdrop of general strikes, the project - which was very specific - also aimed to unite the team of medical professionals.
