The contribution takes organizational space to the analytical fore and analyzes the spatial mediation of the translation of patient-centered care. By bridging theories on innovations' translation and the literature on organizational space, the chapter explores how the redesign of healthcare spaces is used to materialize ideas of patient-centredness and what happens when consolidated clinical practices resist and change these spatial translations of an innovation. Specifically the work focuses on a) how patient-centredness translates into the spatial arrangement of the hospital and b) how, in turn, clinical practitioners work with or around the new spatial setup by both taking up the patient-centredness discourse and working around the spatial arrangement.
