Lighting in healthcare facilities can have an effect on the overall healing environment. Whether healthcare lighting is focused on task-oriented lighting or calming mood lighting; patients, staff, and visitors should be considered to ensure their psychological, emotional, and physical health and well-being are benefiting.

Long-lasting and dimmable tunable lights should be used to accommodate 24/7 operation and the patents need for sleep as well as the staffs need to be alert.
