We believe Creating Places to Belong is critically important to health. Creating a place where patients, families, and caregivers feel like they belong is about connecting to a greater purpose and supporting individual needs. By balancing hybrid environments, prioritizing flexibility, focusing on inclusion and belonging, and supporting overall health and well-being within healthcare environments, we can improve the sense of belonging for all.
At the 2023 Healthcare Design Expo we shared how we are bringing furniture solutions to health environments that provide choice, comfort, and connection to help deliver better experiences to patients, families, and caregivers.
Our Kolo Pods received the Innovation Award and Silver Nightingale Awards at the Healthcare Design Conference + Expo (HCD), based on their contribution to a healing environment, functionality, quality, durability, aesthetics, pricing, and innovation.

Supporting Health and Well-being
Offering areas where caregivers can relax and recharge leads to greater job satisfaction, reduced stress, and more responsive patient services. To mitigate burnout, create spaces where teamwork thrives, and overall wellness is a priority.
