The KORE Work Cart by Kimball is the recipient of a 2018 Nightingale Award for product innovation and excellence in the furniture, clinician support category. The Nightingale Awards honor new products that are exhibited at the Healthcare Design Expo & Conference in November. Presented by Healthcare Design and Contract in partnership with The Center for Health Design, the Nightingale Awards recognize contribution to the healthcare built environment through product design and innovation that contributes to healing. Products are evaluated by seasoned healthcare design professionals and healthcare facility managers. The jury makes selections based on the product’s contribution to a healing environment, functionality, quality and durability, aesthetics and style, pricing, and innovation.
The KORE Work Cart was on display at this year’s Healthcare Design and Conference as well as Kimball Health’s latest product releases that are designed to support the landscape of today’s healthcare facilities with seamless and durable solutions for both public zones and clinical spaces. Designed by Daniel Korb from Xchange design, the KORE Work Cart is a mobile workstation that provides privacy, efficiency and comfort. Clinical spaces require furniture that can be versatile enough to meet the needs of a continually changing environment and the KORE Work Cart meets those needs by providing flexibility and mobility, while maximizing space. A rechargeable battery enables technology integration without being constrained to a single location, while pneumatic height adjust transfers the work area from sitting to standing simply, and without any power requirement.
“Healthcare is undergoing the most extreme transformational shift in a century,” said Aneetha McLellan, Director of Kimball Health Sales, Innovation and Design. “We are meeting this shift by pushing the boundaries and embedding principles of adaptability, flexibility, and mobility in our products and are thrilled that the KORE Work Cart was recognized with a Nightingale Award, one of the most prestigious awards for innovation in the healthcare industry.
