"Within the past ten years there has been a remarkable change in the aesthetics of healthcare environments, however we have yet to see what are likely to be the extraordinary results of employing evidence-based design in tandem with a focus on organizational culture and attention to operational performance."
Note: The above statement was written in 2005.
The design of healing environments quickly became an industry buzzword after publication of her book Hospital Interior Architecture in 1992 which promoted the concept of research-based design. She has guided thousands to the idea of ”designing the patient experience” through her books, articles, lectures, courses, and seminars. As creative director, she led the firm she founded in 1970 toward performance excellence and innovation.

CLOSING OF THE FIRM
In 2013, after celebrating 40 years of excellence in healthcare design, Jain Malkin retired and closed the firm. This website of legacy projects is a tribute to the many talented designers who worked with Jain and to their clients who appreciated high quality design and understood the importance of a research-based structure to support it. Jain is no longer consulting but can occasionally be reached on Linked In or at firstname.lastname@example.org. She lives in La Jolla, California and is enjoying life as a painter.
