This research aims to examine the suitability of classical thermal comfort approaches for hospital patients. For that purpose, the data was gathered in three phases in May, June, and July 2017 at the International Medical Centre (IMC) in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, which was selected as an example of a best-practice hospital. Environmental monitoring for a week of each month in the summer season was undertaken to assess thermal environmental parameters. This was supported by simultaneous comfort surveys of the sample patients.
