IOA Healthcare Furniture took home the Best of Competition honor for its CAMA Bed Chair.
Named in honor of Florence Nightingale, and initiated by Contract magazine’s editors and The Center for Health Design’s founders in 1990, the Nightingale Awards recognize products that are juried by seasoned healthcare design professionals and healthcare facility managers. The jury makes selections based on the product’s contribution to a healing environment, functionality, quality and durability, aesthetics and style, pricing, and innovation. To evaluate the entries, jurors visit the exhibitors’ booths before the show floor opens at the Healthcare Design Expo & Conference to examine the products in person and ask questions of the manufacturers as well.
The 2016 winners were announced at the Healthcare Design Expo & Conference in November.
