Entries for the 2018 Nightingale Awards are now open! Product categories and the submission portal can be found here.
The Nightingale Awards honor new products that are exhibited at the Healthcare Design Expo & Conference in November. Presented by Healthcare Design and Contract in partnership with the Center for Health Design, the Nightingale Awards recognize contribution to the healthcare built environment through product design and innovation that contributes to healing.
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.
Below, view the 2017 winners of the Nightingale Awards.
