Frontier Wins Gold Nightingale Award

Product Innovation that Contributes to the Healing Process

Gold Nightengale Award - Frontier

Ontario, Canada – Stance Healthcare’s Frontier Collection won the Gold Nightingale Award at the Healthcare Design Expo & Conference 2019 in the category of furniture collections. Frontier is a rotationally-molded collection for Behavioral Health consisting of a bed and bedside cabinet.

Designed in partnership with Suzanne Fawley, Stance Healthcare’s Behavioral Health Interior Designer, Frontier is constructed with high-impact polyethylene, continuously molded for maximum durability. Frontier is easy to clean and features rounded corners and edges, providing a safe environment for patients. The bed also features an innovative system that supports fluid removal.

Unique is the flip-style bedside cabinet for preferred configuration, providing designers with increased flexibility and highly usable space for patients to keep their personal belongings. The Frontier bed and bedside cabinet have more residential appeal than other rotationally-molded products on the market. Specifically, the floor-mount system for the bed was developed to have minimal impact on the overall aesthetics of the product, helping the patient feel at ease in their environment.

“We created this collection in response to the growing demand for behavioral health products with residential appeal,” says President, Carl Kennedy. “We are overjoyed that our design efforts to improve the quality of life for patients while maintaining the design specifications required for intensive use environments, was recognized by the healthcare design industry with the Gold Nightingale Award.”

Additional rotationally-molded pieces of the collection, including a desk and wall-mount shelf, will be available in early 2020.
