Today's Shift in Healthcare Design

The future of healthcare design

Today’s most successful healing facilities are innovative, modern and focus on both the patient and the caregivers.

These spaces no longer capture that sterile, unappealing feel and have shifted toward a more hospitality design aesthetic featuring invigorating colors, modern furniture and luxurious comfort. Let's take a look at how Kimball is transforming ordinary spaces into extraordinary healing environments.

Attractive Exam Stools

A simple design with a chic edge, the Lusso family of seating has a solution for a variety of environments. Multiple base options, shell and seat pad colors make Lusso the perfect customizable option for meeting spaces, guest seating and even exam stools.

Sophisticated Sleepover Solutions

The Villa Health Sleep Sofa is the perfect sleepover solution for family and guests. A spring seat delivers superior comfort while a folding back cushion provides an antimicrobial sleep surface. The optional drawer front allows ample storage for overnight stays. Add the Bloom Pull-Up table and you are set.

Re-Invent Nursing Stations

Variety is a key feature of the concept— the balance between collective and individual needs, collaborative and solitary work, the dictates of the morning and those of the evening in a fast-paced hospital environment. Canopy seamlessly combines utility with unexpected materials–exposed plywood edges, colorful work tools, wood truss accents, natural wool felt and a unique bungee display system–to create spaces that not only function, but inspire.

A Softer Touch on Guest Seating

With its rounded back and generous sitting area, Nash is ideal f

or a variety of spaces—including relaxation rooms, patient rooms, private offices and lounge areas. Mix materials to create a statement. Nestle chairs around a conference table or place stools at cafe-height tables or bars. Whatever the case, Nash is bound to impress.

The Full Circle

As healthcare continues to advance, the needs and expectations of patients and caregivers are changing, altering the course of traditional healthcare environments. These changes are what has driven the development of Alterna, designed to support this evolving landscape with seamless and durable solutions for the entire facility – from public zones, to clinical areas, to workspaces and more.

The high quality construction of Alterna means it’s dependable throughout the life of the product, and the broad offering of finishes and materials make it easy to specify for new construction or renovations to existing facilities. Alterna is caseworks built to support the full facility, bringing its design and function to a full circle.
