Nightingale is Nurture's second major industry award for 2008

WASHINGTON, Nov. 12 /PRNewswire/ -- Nurture(R) by Steelcase, a leading manufacturer of furniture for healthcare environments, today announced that it has earned its second consecutive prestigious Nightingale Award at the annual Healthcare Design 08 Conference in Washington, D.C. for its new caregiver workspace solution, SYNC(TM).

SYNC addresses the emerging needs of caregivers and clinical environments by seamlessly supporting people to technology and people to people work processes. Whether in a centralized or decentralized, new construction or retro-fit environment, SYNC work stations offer highly flexible and customizable ergonomic solutions that easily accommodate ever increasing technology demands. SYNC is a modular solution, it can be moved and re-used or reconfigured as needs change.

SYNC was designed in collaboration with HDR Architecture, Inc., a renowned leader and innovator in healthcare design.

Nurture designer and Director of Product Development Alan Rheault said, "We're particularly proud that this product was singled out for recognition. SYNC is so critical to the caregiver and partners-in-care experience. We feel SYNC brings significant design innovation and functionality to the healthcare environment."

SYNC addresses the new needs of what used to be called centralized and decentralized nurses stations. These needs were identified via the combination of the extensive experience of HDR Architecture and Nurture's thorough research.

Steve LaHood, Vice President and Director of Product Development of HDR Architecture, Inc. said, "We were excited to collaborate with Nurture on a fresh approach to the typical nurses stations, one we knew would solve the emerging needs of caregivers. It was immensely rewarding to work with a manufacturer who could help transform our vision for a line of flexible systems furniture into a beautiful reality."

The Nightingale Awards honor new healthcare products introduced to the U.S. market since November 2007. They are awarded based on the product's contribution to the quality of healthcare, functionality, quality, aesthetics, environmental sustainability and pricing, and are judged by interior designers and architects that specialize in healthcare design. The Nightingale Awards product design competition is sponsored by Contract magazine in association with The Center for Health Design and The Healthcare Design Conference.

"Earning a Nightingale Award is a tremendous honor for Nurture. It reinforces our commitment to research-based solutions and our effort to continuously strive to offer the highest quality products," said Michael Love, president of Nurture. "It's gratifying that key industry leaders recognize our contribution to the healthcare industry."

This is the second consecutive Nightingale Award for Nurture, as the company's Opus(TM) Overbed Table won the award last year.

In addition to back-to-back Nightingale Awards, Nurture products have been honored with three consecutive "Gold" awards in the healthcare furniture category at the 2006, 2007 and 2008 "Best of NeoCon" competitions.

Nurture officially launched as a company in 2006, but the company is not new to healthcare. Years of research and partnerships with leading healthcare providers and organizations such as HDR, allow the company to tailor a wide variety of environmental solutions to specific settings.

The Nurture by Steelcase family of companies provides a comprehensive product portfolio that supports a wide variety of healthcare environments.
