In the annual survey of architecture and design professionals, Nemschoff, was selected as the top choice in healthcare furniture and recognized as one of the most preferred vendors for that category. With a long-standing reputation for providing innovative, evidence-based healthcare solutions, the company celebrates this recognition alongside their recent Nightingale Award win for the Valor collection of waiting room solutions.
