Transforming Healthcare Spaces with Award-Winning Collections

Amidst the lively atmosphere, Stance Healthcare, a leading furniture manufacturer designed for healing environments, stood out with a triumphant showing, receiving three prestigious awards.
Stance’s accolades came in the form of the Nightingale Awards, a prestigious recognition in the healthcare design industry, presented by Healthcare Design Magazine in collaboration with the Center for Health Design and the HCD Conference. These awards celebrate product design and innovation that contributes to the healing and well-being of patients in healthcare environments.
This year’s Nightingale Awards program was especially competitive, with a record 55 products under scrutiny. A distinguished panel of healthcare interior designers and facilities executives assessed the entries, making Stance’s victories all the more impressive.
The Triumph of the Lotus Case Goods Collection
Stance’s Lotus Case Goods collection emerged as a standout, clinching the Gold Award in the Furniture Collections category, and an Innovation Award.

It brings warmth to behavioral health spaces with its wood-grained appearance, setting a calming ambiance for patients.
Safety is paramount in healthcare environments, especially in behavioral health settings, and the Lotus Case Goods collection addresses this concern with ligature-resistant features. Furthermore, its open design minimizes the risk of concealment, ensuring the well-being of patients.
