Stance Healthcare Launches Two New Cleanable Seating Designs in August

Strada sleeper sofa and Quantum stack seating collection are latest products from the award-winning furniture manufacturer known for comfort and durability

TORONTO, ON (August 21st, 2020) – Stance Healthcare, a furniture designer and manufacturer for healthcare and Behavioral Health facilities, announces the launch of two new highly cleanable seating selections available for purchase beginning this month. Quantum, a stack seating collection was officially launched this week. Strada, the company’s first-ever mechanism-free sleeper sofa will launch next week.

Known for intuitive furniture designs that anticipate the unique needs of different healthcare settings, Stance Healthcare prioritized cleanability and comfort in the making of their latest products, which launch as North American hospitals continue working to control Coronavirus outbreaks. Easy-to-clean solid surface arm caps are an available feature for the Strada sleeper sofa, and the durable Quantum chair was designed to limit bacteria traps.

“Just like everyone in the healthcare industry, we are working hard to continue creating solutions that meet sustained needs in the COVID-19 era,” said Carl Kennedy, Stance Healthcare’s president. “Our new Quantum seating and Strada sleeper sofa offer the trademark features we’re known for – durability, comfort, and sleek, updated design – while most importantly building on our commitment to bringing highly cleanable furniture products to medical facilities facing unprecedented demand.”

In addition to the new products’ cleanability aspects, Strada and Quantum also offer innovative design components. Showcasing a first-ever design option for the company, Strada features the first suspension solution made out of glass-fiber reinforced plastic slats that support the entire body. The contemporary-style sleeper sofa also has a smaller footprint, making it ideal for patient rooms of all sizes. The new Quantum stack seating collection evolves from the company’s popular Accent seating collection and features braze-welded frames for seamless joinery.

Stance Healthcare has been recognized in recent years for their furniture designs, which emphasize comfort and durability with a contemporary, modern aesthetic. The company’s collections are also known to offer features that anticipate and subtly address the needs of end-users, including the ways they can be cleaned.

Stance Healthcare Launches Huxley, Expands Frontier Collection

The Stance Healthcare team is proud to share not one, but two new product announcements this month. On February 13, we welcomed Huxley, a new lounge seating collection, and expanded our acclaimed Frontier case goods collection for Behavioral Health. Here’s a look at what makes each of these new offerings special:

  • Huxley Lounge Seating: Huxley is an evolution of our popular Cassia and Carson lounge collections, which offer durable, easy-to-clean seating options for myriad uses and healthcare settings. Updated chair legs, as well as bench and table selections offered in multiple sizes, are features unique to the Huxley collection. View the brochure here and press release here.
  • Frontier Case Goods for Behavioral Health – New Desk and Shelving: A desk and two shelving options join the award-winning bed and flip-style bedside table in our Frontier collection. The new products continue the line’s signature emphasis on durability with a comforting aesthetic and were developed to prioritize safety. View the updated brochure here and press release here.

We’re looking forward to supporting more healthcare and Behavioral Health environments through these new product offerings. And with several more initiatives up our sleeve, we’re just getting started on an exciting year ahead. Stay tuned for what’s coming next from our innovative, hard-working Stance Healthcare team this spring and the remainder of 2020!

Stance Healthcare Launches Huxley Lounge Seating Collection

Designed for modern healthcare settings, collection offers seating, benches, tables

TORONTO, ON (February 18, 2020) – Stance Healthcare, a furniture designer and manufacturer for healthcare and Behavioral Health facilities, has announced the launch of Huxley, a lounge seating collection featuring seating, benches and a wide selection of coordinating occasional tables. The new products showcase Stance Healthcare’s signature comfort-meets-function design philosophy while offering a contemporary aesthetic suited for modern healthcare environments.

Huxley is an evolution of Stance Healthcare’s successful Cassia and Carson lounge collections, which include durable, easy-to-clean seating options for myriad uses and healthcare settings. Updated chair legs, as well as bench and table selections, are features unique to the Huxley collection.

“Our furniture merges comfort and function, anticipating the unique needs of the patients, visitors, and caregivers using every room – from the waiting area to inpatient treatment rooms,” said Carl Kennedy, Stance Healthcare’s president. “With its contemporary styling and enhanced structural integrity, Huxley is the latest example of how Stance Healthcare is replacing yesterday’s ‘doctor’s office furniture’ with innovative products that are designed to endure, but still offer a residential feel.”

Huxley seating includes single lounge, two-seat lounge, and three-seat lounge options, which all feature invisible fasteners and concealed clean-out space between the seat and back. Heavy-duty glides are also non-marring to protect floors from damage. The collection’s benches are offered in two-seat and three-seat sizes, with coordinating Huxley tables available in five freestanding table shapes and sizes.

The collection features a Limited Lifetime Warranty and is LEVEL® certified as environmentally-preferable and socially responsible office furniture. Huxley seating, benches, and tables are available to purchase by calling Stance Healthcare customer service at 1-877-395-2623.

Stance Healthcare Expands Award-Winning Behavioral Health Collection

Frontier collection adds desk, shelving to innovative line designed to support dignity, healing

TORONTO, ON (February 13, 2020) – Stance Healthcare, a furniture designer and manufacturer specializing in Behavioral Health spaces, has added two new products to their award-winning Frontier collection. The acclaimed product line now includes two shelving units and desk, in addition to the 2019 Nightingale Gold Award-winning bed and bedside table. The latest offerings are available for purchase Thursday, February 13.

These new products continue the Stance Healthcare collection’s signature emphasis on durability with a comforting aesthetic. As with the bed and flip-style, multi-use bedside table, the bookshelf and desk were developed with a goal of “realistic functionality” that prioritizes safety. The rotationally-molded products feature rounded corners and are manufactured with naturally pick-proof materials for patients experiencing Behavioral Health treatment.

“With a variety of care modules evolving for Behavioral Health, yesterday’s one-size-fits-all approach to interior design no longer works. The various areas of the facility must be treated independently,” said Suzanne Fawley, Stance Healthcare’s Behavioral Health interior designer who developed the Frontier line with the company. “The Frontier line supports each patient’s specific treatment experience, making the caretaking process easier, cleaner, and less interruptive – while offering a less clinical, more residential feel.”

In addition to the new desk, the line expansion offers both two-shelf and three-shelf wall mount unit options. The design style behind the shelving follows that of the award-winning Frontier collection: They accommodate patients’ specific needs, per treatment need and length of stay. The two-shelf option offers patients convenient storage for journaling or coloring book therapy, or alternately as clothing storage for a short-term stay. The three-shelf option can accommodate approved personal and expanded clothing items for a longer period of stay. Both options offer a pleasing aesthetic which eliminates visual clutter, thus supporting a quiet environment for Behavioral Health patients in treatment.

“As pioneers in Behavioral Health design, Stance Healthcare innovates award-winning products that prioritize dignity in the treatment process, improving the quality of healthcare experiences for patients, visitors, and caregivers,” said Carl Kennedy, Stance Healthcare’s president. “We are proud of the way our Frontier collection addresses these unique needs and are looking forward to offering even more furniture options with the shelving and desk additions.”

Stance Healthcare’s Behavioral Health products, including the Frontier collection, support the evolving demand for increased Mental & Behavioral Health treatment facilities across the U.S. The Frontier shelving and desks are available to purchase by calling Stance Healthcare customer service at 1-877-395-2623 beginning February 13.

New Healthcare Furniture Designs For Pediatric Spaces

Ontario, Canada – Stance Healthcare recently announced they would begin designing children’s healthcare furniture for use in pediatric spaces. To launch this new initiative, a “Junior” version of their popular Accent Chair, along with coordinating activity tables, will officially be released early October in advance of the Healthcare Design Expo + Conference taking place in November.

“Our Accent seating collection is very popular in the healthcare industry due to its versatility, durable and cleanability. We were receiving requests for that same quality in a children’s seating collection, as there are not many options available currently” says President, Carl Kennedy. “We have since been able to take the design of our current Accent chair and create a healthcare-grade chair suitable for pediatric spaces. Having the Accent available in both a standard and junior version allows designers to create a cohesive environment suitable for both adults and children.”

The Accent Junior has similar features and options as its parent design, but resized with a child’s comfort in mind:

 Upholstered or wood back available with custom cutouts
 Versatile and stackable
 14-gauge steel frame powder-coated in a range of finishes
 Exceeds BIFMA Seating Durability test to 500 lbs
 Coordinating activity tables available in a variety of shapes and sizes

To experience the NEW Accent Junior, visit Stance Healthcare (booth 1623) at Healthcare Design Expo + Conference from November 11-14 at The Gaylord Palms Resort & Convention Center in Florida. For show information, please visit

Our Top 3 Healthcare Design Links for January

Last month, Stance Healthcare participated in the #BellLetsTalk campaign (you can read more about our involvement here). Therefore, two of our most read articles in January weren’t related to healthcare design, but instead discussed behavioral health and mental illness.  Check them out below:

Duchess Kate Perfectly Nails Why People Don’t Seek Mental Health Help
Kate explains the challenge that so many people have is not knowing how to take that first step of reaching out to another person for help.  She also states that fear, or a sense of not wanting to burden another, means that people suffer in silence ― allowing the problem to grow larger and larger unchecked.

Top 5 Healthcare Design Ideas For 2017
One of the Top 5 Healthcare Design Ideas for 2017 includes facility upgrades to therapeutic environments that will balance regulatory concerns and safety. Securing furniture to walls and floors are one of the safety upgrades to be considered. Furniture specific for the behavioral healthcare environment include sled bases and bolt-to-floor brackets that will aid in safety for patients and caregivers.

Routine That Supports Good Mental Health
Routines make healthy choices easier and reduce stress. Routines that include some of these habits, can help support emotional health:

·       A healthy breakfast
·       Exercise
·       Prioritize your to-do list
·       Appreciate what’s good in your life
·       Build and enjoy your relationships
