Summerlin Hospital

Nature’s Best Medicine

Daylight impacts human health and performance by kick-starting the body’s circadian system, affecting mood and perception, and by enabling critical chemical reactions in the body. Patients in rooms with good daylight require up to 25% shorter stays and 25% less pain medication.

When renovating the pediatric floor at Summerlin Hospital in Nevada the glare-free daylight provided by the Dayliter Shade helped create a warm, hospitable environment encouraging speedy recovery. The product’s flexibility allowed for the lightshelf to be reduced in size to suit the relatively low window head without impacting the daylight and still meet code requirements.
