The purpose of this paper is to improve patient experience in an orthopedic hospital. We used service design methodologies to design better patient experiences. First we collected pain points from patients and workers in the hospital. Patients complained of long waiting time, and unpleasant experience during rehabilitation therapy session. The worker has operational issues for improving patients’ process. Three experience design prototypes were proposed based on the service design methods.
