Ambius Enhances the Complete Healthcare Environment at Chicago's Healthcare Facilities Symposium & Expo

CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwire - September 13, 2010) -  Ambius,, showcases a broad range of products and services which enhance the complete healthcare environment including interior landscaping, ambient scenting and odor remediation, wall art décor and holiday décor at the Healthcare Facilities Symposium & Expo held September 14-16, 2010 at the Chicago Navy Pier. Ambius, which is dedicated to changing the landscape of healthcare interiors across North America one facility at a time, will be at Booth #314.

There is a growing body of research that demonstrates that access to a natural environment indoors may improve health and well-being, aid in the prevention of disease and help people recover from illness faster. "Patients in healthcare environments are clearly benefiting from environmental enhancements known as evidence-based design," says John Doyle, Director of National Sales for Ambius. "Evidence-based design (EBD) features a holistic review of a building's physical space including the total sensory environment of sight, sound, touch and smell. EBD is credited with having a healing impact on a patient's well-being, mood and safety and providing a restorative benefit for busy medical staffers. At Ambius, we see first-hand the healing benefits of employing EBD principles with plants, ambient scenting and art in healthcare environments."

"While our 'roots' are in beautifying work environments with plants, we strive to improve the quality of the total work environment with ambient scenting and odor remediation, wall art décor and holiday décor," adds Doyle. "To help offices create user friendly carbon reduction solutions and eliminate the environmental impact of plastic water bottles, our new HydroFresh pilot program -- now serving the Chicago, Fort Lauderdale and Dallas markets -- provides state-of-the-art water purification systems to the workplace."
