Abstract The spatial analysis of indoor and outdoor spaces in medical and dental hospital is necessary for the development of healing environment and architectural planning of healthcare system and hospital architecture in Korea. The purpose of this study is to provide basic information about spatial configuration of healing environment such as rest area and outside view in Dankook university hospital, cancer center, and dental hospital. Literature review and investigation on current status of healing environment in Dankook healthcare facilities have been conducted. The relationship between healthcare facilities and factors of healing environment has been analyzed. The result of this study can be summarized as followed. The first one is that factors of healing environment are rest area and direct access to rest area, and outdoor natural view from inside of healthcare facilities. The second one is that rest areas are located inside and outside of facility and roof garden in Dankook healthcare facilities. The outside view from Dankook university hospital and cancer center is mountain green view and the one from dental hospital is lake water view in university campus. The third one is that characteristics of spatial configuration on outdoor rest area is low integration in access road and high integration inside rest area of medical hospital, and two different types(high and low integration) of rest area in dental hospital. The fourth one is that continuous and dynamic walking road of medical hospital can be a new factor of healing environment formation. This is the research of spatial configuration in healthcare system for the healing environment and to be expanded to other hospitals in Korea.
