Healthcare Design magazine in partnership with the Center for Health Design and The Healthcare Design Expo + Conference announce the winners of The Nightingale Awards 2021.
The Nightingale Awards, the industry’s leading program to recognize products related to the healthcare built environment, are named for Florence Nightingale, a tireless advocate for the improvement of care and conditions in military and civilian hospitals in the 1800s. The judging criteria for the awards is the product’s contribution to a healing environment along with aesthetics and innovation; contribution or solution for clinical or operational outcomes; durability, functionality, and quality; environmental sustainability; industry certifications and standards; and list price. To evaluate the entries, jurors visited exhibitors’ booths before the Healthcare Design Expo opened to examine the products, hear the story of their design and development, and ask questions.
Products were judged by: Shary Adams, Mental Health Behavior Practice Leader, CannonDesign; Dee Dee Bonds, Senior Interior Designer/Associate, HOK; Edward Cheshire, Architect, Senior Project Manager, Nationwide Children’s Hospital; Sarah Cypher, Director of Nursing, Froedtert Hospital; Cindy Flinchum, Project Manager Interiors, UW Health; Melanie Harris, Healing Practice Director, BSA Life Structures; Debbie Heitzman, Principal, SSR; Isaac Holman, Senior Interior Design Manager, ESa; Andrea V.
