Herman Miller Healthcare Expands Presence with Nemschoff and Brandrud at Healthcare Design.09
October 26, 2009
Herman Miller Healthcare, together with subsidiaries Nemschoff and Brandrud, will bring more than 100 years of combined healthcare interiors knowledge, research and experience to Healthcare Design.09.
The fifth annual Healthcare Design conference provides educational opportunities and forums for those who design, build and renovate healthcare facilities. It will be held at the Gaylord Palms Resort and Convention Center in Orlando, October 31-November 3, 2009.
Herman Miller Healthcare's recent acquisition of Nemschoff extends its portfolio to a full range of product applications from the waiting room to administrative offices, and from the clinical lab and pharmacy to the patient room. The designs of each brand are complementary to the whole, providing multiple performance levels and price points in the healthcare interiors category.
The three companies will highlight their products and capabilities at the conference by demonstrating the importance of adaptive environments and Lean practices in healthcare facilities. Adaptive environments, which highlight the importance of Lean thinking, are intentionally designed to create flexibility within healthcare spaces, particularly caregiver work areas, waiting rooms and patient rooms.
Conference attendees will be able to experience an array of adaptive environments within the company's exhibit space, which will include a nurses' station and laboratory display and Nemschoff's and Brandrud's award-winning patient room solutions and waiting room seating products.
