In today’s healthcare environment, providers must improve patient satisfaction as well as attract and retain caregivers, all while delivering quality care and reducing costs. Many providers understand the role that design can play in achieving these goals: it can impact patients’ perceptions of their brand and the care they receive, and it can affect staff performance, productivity and comfort on the job.
Knoll works with clients to create enduring, well-designed spaces that can help meet strategic goals, have a solid return on initial investment and save money over the long run.
Reception and Patient Registration
Reception and registration are the first touch points patients and their families have with a facility. The most successful spaces showcase the facility’s brand, provide displays for clear communication, help with wayfinding and offer comforts and conveniences like access to power for personal technology.
The optimal design of nurse and caregiver work areas supports work flow processes, staff circulation and task sequencing. Knoll offers a variety of furnishings that can help physicians, nurses and therapists work efficiently and effectively so they can focus on what they do best—caring for patients.
Labs require high performance products that are easily cleaned, especially durable and adapt over time. Ergonomic task seating paired with standing-height or height-adjustable table solutions promote a healthful work environment for physicians, staff and students
Administration and Physicians’ Offices
Healthcare organizations demand a variety of enclosed and open plan options to support diverse individual work styles as well as provide multiple opportunities for staff collaboration and consultations between physicians and their patients. Knoll furniture solutions effectively support multiple work modes: individual, focused work; shared work centering on the exchange of ideas; and teamwork that calls for the collective wisdom of the group
