French hospital set to open wine bar for the terminally ill

Hospitals’ primary concern should be to provide adequate healthcare to the local community, but they shouldn’t underestimate the smaller things that can improve the patient experience. In the past we’ve seen Henry Ford West Bloomfield Hospital in Michigan set up it’s own organic food garden to improve the quality of the meals patients receive, and now France’s Clermont-Ferrand University Hospital is planning to open a wine bar to help terminally ill patients better enjoy their long-term stays.
