Patient-Centered Design: Empowering Individuals in Their Healing Journey



In the ever-evolving world of healthcare, the importance of creating healing environments is becoming increasingly recognized. Patients’ well-being, comfort, and recovery are influenced by the design of healthcare facilities and the furniture within them. In this blog, we will explore the latest trends and innovations in the healthcare furniture industry that prioritize patient comfort, well-being, and the overall functionality of clinical spaces.


1. Hospitalized Patient Sleep Quality:

Sleep quality is a crucial aspect of patient recovery. Studies show hospitalized patients often report poor sleep due to lights, noise, and discomfort. Healthcare facilities strive to create “healing environments” that address these issues. Investing in comfortable beds, ensuring privacy, and providing acoustic comfort contribute to improved patient sleep quality. Single rooms are also preferred over multioccupancy rooms as they have been statistically shown to promote longer and better sleep.

2. Designing for Well-Being:

Patients desire comforting and joyful environments that enable autonomy and control. Supportive healthcare design incorporates a sense of control, social support, and positive distractions. Access to nature is recognized as a stress-reducing and comforting factor, leading to an emphasis on incorporating nature-related design elements in healing spaces. Creating a sense of familiarity in an otherwise foreign environment helps patients feel more at ease.


3. Designing Pediatric Rooms:

Pediatric patients require specialized care and attention to their unique needs. Designing pediatric rooms involves:

  • Providing a sense of control to young patients.
  • Supporting privacy.
  • Implementing pain-reduction and distraction methods.

Attention to sensory elements, such as soothing colors and interactive furniture, is crucial in creating a child-friendly environment.


4. Transforming Clinical Spaces:

Healthcare facilities are shifting their focus from purely clinical spaces to healing environments. This involves incorporating more natural light, using softer lighting, and creating zen spaces and gardens. Comfortable furniture, soft color palettes, and quality acoustics are introduced to promote relaxation and reduce patient stress.


Trends, Problems, and Needs in Healthcare Furniture:


1. Agile Hospitals:
The experience with the pandemic has emphasized the need for agile hospitals. Flexibility in design allows spaces to be transformed quickly and effectively to adapt to changing circumstances. Multi-use environments serving various purposes are becoming a top priority for healthcare facilities.


2. Empowering Patients:
Modern healthcare design recognizes the importance of patient empowerment. Giving patients control over certain aspects of their environment, such as lighting, sound, and seat selection, fosters a sense of ownership and comfort during their stay.


3. Personalized Design:
The era of the “one-size-fits-all” approach is fading away. Hospitals now understand that different patient demographics, such as pediatric or elderly patients, require tailored setups to cater to their specific needs and preferences.


4. Material Innovations:
In a healthcare environment, surface areas like table tops and arm caps are a critical design aspect of a given space — they can affect everything from an area’s safety and cleanability, to its aesthetics and comfort. Increasingly in the post-COVID era, surface finish selections are a top consideration for designers and facility planners when specifying products for healthcare.

  • Solid, non-porous surfaces, for one, are easy to clean and extremely durable.
  • Made from natural ingredients, Marmoleum’s benefits are threefold: it’s a completely sustainable material, it contributes to healthy indoor air quality, and it is available in a wide variety of colors.

5. Staff Comfort and Efficiency:
Efficient healthcare environment design not only benefits patients but also supports the well-being of hospital staff. Comfortable and functional furniture reduces physical strain on staff, increasing retention rates and fostering a happier work environment.

The healthcare furniture industry is witnessing significant advancements in creating healing environments prioritizing patient well-being and comfort. Trends such as incorporating nature-related elements, personalizing spaces, and ensuring staff efficiency are shaping the future of healthcare environment design. By staying updated with the latest innovations, healthcare facilities can continue providing the best possible care and support for their patients and staff.

NEW Solid Surface Options

The look of wood with extreme durability

In a healthcare environment, surface areas like table tops and arm caps are a critical design aspect of a given space – they can affect everything from an area’s safety and cleanability, to its aesthetics and comfort. Increasingly in the post-COVID era, surface finish selections are a top consideration for designers and facility planners when specifying products for healthcare.
At Stance, we are excited to announce two new Corian® Solid Surface finish options - Bleached Nuwood and Provence Nuwood. These new finishes provide a wood aesthetic while also providing the durability and cleanability expected of healthcare finishes. The contrasting woodgrain of Bleached Nuwood provides a contemplative design inspired by light and water. While the woodgrain design Provence Nuwood conjures a sense of nature in traditional or contemporary spaces.

“Corian® Solid Surface is the gold standard for healthcare designers,” said Suzanne Fawley, Stance Healthcare’s Behavioral Health Interior Designer. “Its characteristics check every box for healthcare application: durable and able to withstand wear, highly cleanable, and extremely customizable – it’s a great investment for any healthcare environment.”
Corian® Solid Surface is:

  • Easy-to-clean and maintain.
  • When properly cleaned, Corian® is a hygienic surface and does not support the growth of mold and mildew.

  • Easily renewed and repaired.
  • Flexible.
  • GREENGUARD Certified® as a low VOC-emitting material
  • Stain resistant
  • Slip resistant
  • Extensive color choice available, others on demand

Stance Has The Finishes To Fit Any Space

How Stance Refreshed Its Finishes To Keep Its Products Current


Stance Healthcare and Stance Behavioral Health have spent the past year refining and refreshing the finishes they offer in order to stay current and provide customers with choices. By providing more variety and more relevance in terms of finishes, Stance is better suited to fit the needs of any type of healthcare space.


Some of the new finishes were selected with specific spaces in mind. For instance, the new Rainbow Collection of Marmoleum finishes is bright, lively, and inviting, making them perfect for pediatric spaces. In addition to the Marmoleum Rainbow Collection, Stance also updated its standard Marmoleum collection to include 8 distinct finishes – Silt Stone, Withered Prairie, Red Horse, Cliffs of Moher, Trace of Nature, Urban Silver, Desert Sand, and Welsh Moor. The Standard and Rainbow Marmoleum finishes are available on the Resilia and Pavilion tables, available for both Healthcare and Behavioral Health.



Stance also recently refreshed its offering of Corian® solid surface finishes. The company discontinued a couple of finishes but added  4 new ones to bring the number of Corian® solid surface finishes up to 8. They include  Glacier White, Camera White, Bisque, Linen, Pearl Gray, Silver Gray, Dove, and Canyon.



Stance’s commitment to updating its finishes extended into its wood, laminate, and thermofoil offerings as well. Earlier this year Stance added four new finish colors to its portfolio of wood, laminate, and thermofoil. The new finish colors – Aria, White Chocolate, Dolce Vita, and Palomino – add even more style and versatility to our robust collection of laminate finishes. Further, Stance’s new color options will match across all types of finishes – a unique offering in the healthcare furniture marketplace. (While other furniture makers may offer a variety of colors in each finish, they don’t always match across all finishes.)


Stance Healthcare knows that every detail of the design matters, including finishes. That’s why the company uses materials built to stand the test of time. That’s important from a budget standpoint – healthcare facilities want durable pieces that withstand wear and tear and are easy to maintain. Stance strives to strike a balance between comfort and durability with every product it manufactures, and the finishes it uses to play a significant role in how it achieves this.


Finishes and colors play a factor in our moods, and in commercial settings including healthcare, color selections must be intentional. For example, a fast-food restaurant might select colors that encourage busyness for quick eating, such as red; in a healthcare setting, we aim for the opposite: soothing tones, patterns, and hues that conjure a sense of calm and comfort in patients, care providers, and visitors. Finishes in Stance’s collection convey a neutral feel.


In addition to the wide variety of finishes it currently offers, Stance is open to quoting custom color finishes on a project-by-project basis. It’s proof of Stance’s dedication to remaining on the leading edge of hospital furniture design – and to improving lives by design. And, as a leader in the industry, Stance will continue to refresh and revamp the products it offers in order to better meet the constantly changing needs of the healthcare landscape.

The Kite Chair Offers Functional Versatility For Small Spaces.


When it comes to design, Stance Healthcare approaches every piece of furniture with purpose. Each product has unique benefits, applications and attributes that make it ideal for certain spaces. The Stance Kite Folding Chair is no different. This versatile, durable chair has a variety of functional and flexible features that make it perfect for environments where space is limited, like patient rooms and waiting rooms.  


The Kite Folding Chair’s defining feature is its highly durable frame that can be folded and neatly tucked away to create more room in the space. It also comes with a wall mount for quick and easy storage. This is great for small spaces like patient rooms or multi-use areas where additional space might be needed throughout the day.



Available in both metal and wood frames, the Kite Folding Chair gives healthcare providers options to fit the look and feel of their facility. The metal frame is available in 6 different finishes with a clean, modern aesthetic. The collection of Stance metal finishes consists of Smooth Black, Textured Black, Textured Nickel, Smooth Silver, Gunmetal and Metallic Beige. The metal frame is constructed from 14 and 16 gauge material, so it can withstand heavy use and continue providing flexible functionality time after time. The stylish and durable wood frame finishes are particularly popular and help provide a classic, distinguished look. With the addition of four new colors in 2022 — Aria, White Chocolate, Dolce Vita, and Palamino — there are 12 total wood finish options to choose from. Both the metal and wooden models are intentionally designed with a contoured back and waterfall seat to provide added comfort and help patients and visitors feel more at ease in the space.


There are a number of customization options available for the Kite Folding Chair to make it even more tailored to fit the specific needs of certain spaces. Those options vary from custom frame finishes and contrasting fabrics to give the space a more distinct look, to moisture barrier and protective bumper on the chair back for added safety and protection. Plus, there are two sizes to choose from with 16” and 18” seat width options.

The Carson Family of Products Is Expanding

Making the Healthcare Space More Accessible by Design


Stance Healthcare’s Carson family of products offers a range of flexible, inviting seating options, like the lounge chair and sleeper sofa. And now, Stance has added even more versatility to the line with the addition of a new Carson Recliner model with Patient Transfer Arm. With each product in the line offering its own unique benefits and uses, this durable, well-designed collection of furniture works together to offer a full range of applications and bring a better overall experience to the healthcare space.


The lounge chair offers style and comfort for waiting rooms and lounge areas, while the two- and three-seat sleeper sofas provide a versatile and inviting solution for visitors when they need it most. Every product in the Carson line offers flexible style and functionality, with a variety of options to suit the needs of any space. With customizable arm caps, legs, finishes and fabrics, along with a number of other functionality options, this truly is a collection designed with everyone in mind. But what really makes it so versatile is the addition of the Recliner With Patient Transfer Arm. It’s the only recliner with a transfer arm that Stance Healthcare currently offers.


The Carson Recliner With Patient Transfer Arm offers a wide range of patient benefits that regular seating options can’t. The arm allows the user to get in and out of the chair more safely and easily, while also making it easier for the healthcare provider to help transfer patients to a bed, wheelchair or other seating option. The side-folding transfer arm is activated by a flush pull mechanism on the chair, with an audible click to alert the user that the arm is locked in position, allowing for smooth and efficient transfer every time. The dependable design features stainless steel latches and hinges for increased durability and easy cleaning, helping healthcare professionals stay on schedule and provide the care and attention that each patient deserves.



The Carson Recliner With Patient Transfer Arm fits seamlessly into the Carson collection and offers the same flexible design and customizable options as the rest of the line. With a variety of colors and fabrics to choose from, along with wood and solid surface finishes, there’s something for every aesthetic with the Carson line. 

The new recliner also offers a variety of options to increase functionality, like a moisture barrier, slide-out tray, IV pole and holder, trendelenburg, accessory hook and central locking system.

More options for durability and versatility

In a healthcare environment, surface areas like table tops and arm caps are a critical design aspect of a given space – they can affect everything from an area’s safety and cleanability, to its aesthetics and comfort.

At Stance, we are proud to offer Corian® Solid Surface finish options across many of our product categories. This material is the original solid surface offering in the marketplace and remains the go-to solid surface selection for healthcare furniture, and for good reasons: Corian® Solid Surface is a virtually maintenance-free finish selection that is highly customizable, easy-to-clean and withstands the test of time.

We recognize the benefits of this material and recently refreshed our Corian® Solid Surface finish options to include three new colors: Cameo White, Pearl Gray and Silver Gray, for a total of 8 neutral color options ranging from pure white to a speckled gray.
