In a medical environment it is very important to have a consistent room temperature. It benefits the patient and medical staff with a healthy, efficient way to heat a medical facility.
The elderly in particular oftentimes find their home's central heating system to be insufficient or inadequate.

Hospital Burn Rooms, where patients cannot have air blowing on them, are a perfect example where radiant heating can have soothing effects.
