The incorporation of biomorphic design patterns in healthcare designs forms the basis of this research paper. This paper seeks to establish the application of Monstera leaf designs, shapes and forms to create a therapeutic and aesthetic space in the healthcare environments so as to catalyze the healing process. This will involve a clear examination on the ability of nature based designs towards creating therapeutic spaces in the healthcare environments.it will discuss the feasibility of employing locally available materials in creating sustainable healthcare spaces as well. The healthcare system has over the years experienced very long hospital stays due to lack of therapeutic ambiences. This has had these environments encounter congestions in many countries and therefore the design sector has been working towards solving these major problems through the integration of nature and nature based designs in them.
