The relationship between the architectural features of the healthcare facilities and the person’s well-being has been extensively investigated in the recent decades, in order to identify criteria for their humanization, according to the contemporary idea of health and the centrality of the individual. While in the past centuries the typological evolution of hospitals, reflected the evolution in the theoretical issues and the contemporary needs, today that correspondence rarely occurs. For this reason it is necessary, on the one hand, to refer to the good practices implemented internationally, and on the other hand, to continue to dwell on issues such as accessibility, livability and safety, aiming at the development of practical solutions, with particular attention to the large amount of existing healthcare facilities, and introducing an essential variable -"nearly ignored to date -"which is the gender of the individual.
Keywords: Health; Gender; Hospital humanization; Perceived environmental quality; Evidence- based Design; architecture
