The annual Healthcare Design (HCD) Expo + Conference is known as the industry’s premier design show, highlighting best practices and top healthcare products across the country. Earlier this month, more than 3,200 industry professionals and 250 exhibitors gathered at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center in New Orleans, Louisiana, taking the opportunity to earn continuing education credits, sit in on keynotes and panel discussions, network with peers and discuss the direction of the industry. Hundreds of providers showcased their newest products and services that are enhancing the design of hospital and clinic environments.

Kimball Health at HCD 2019
The healthcare industry is undergoing a major evolution right before our eyes and furniture within the built environment must be able to keep pace in order to foster true well-being. Kimball Health is leading the way for a brighter and better healing experience through its wide range of solution-based, thoughtfully-designed offering of healthcare products. Featured collections at this year’s HCD Expo + Conference created environments that are efficient for clinicians, yet meaningful for patients with seamless and durable solutions for both public zones and clinical spaces.
Shown Above: Kimball Embra™
Newly introduced Embra™ is a thoughtfully equipped lounge and sleep sofa collection where guests can feel welcome, connected and comfortable. The simple design quickly converts from sitting space to a generous sleeping surface. Optional design features, such as lighting, personal storage and technology support, adapt to the needs of guests in community and private spaces. First featured at this year’s NeoCon shows, Work|Able™ was designed to maximize wall space and facilitate collaboration. It creates an engaging application with acoustic softness and a personal level of materiality when integrated within healthcare spaces.
