The gowns, with the clinic's logo printed on the fabric, features side ties that eliminate the embarrassing open-back look that got unwanted attention in the hospital corridor.

Fashionistas who check into the Cleveland Clinic are in for a sartorial treat: designer duds made by Diane von Furstenberg.

And while the new hospital gowns may not look like the iconic wrap dresses the designer became famous for, they’re certainly a sight for sick eyes: they feature a bold graphic print (along with the Cleveland Clinic logo) and side ties, which get rid of the open-back look, according to the Associated Press.

The fabric, which according to the Plain Dealer was picked to coddle patients who complain of being too warm in the hospital, is lightweight, yet hardy enough to withstand multiple washings and dryings – and having all manner of monitors and drains attached to it.

Patient feedback? Women seem to love the gowns, though some of the guys have protested that the outfit is overly feminine. Thus the design team may come up with an alternate print.

No word yet on whether other masculine touches are planned to cater to fashion-conscious male patients.
