Steelcase's Health Care Products Get Approval
GRAND RAPIDS — Nurture by Steelcase, a manufacturer of furniture for health care environments, has received pre-approval from the California Office of Statewide Health and Planning Development for two more of its products: Montage, a modular nursing and reception station; and ShareLink 8 by Details, a wall-mounted, ergonomic computer station.
According to a news release, Montage and ShareLink 8 join four other Nurture products that have received pre-approval from OSHPD: Opus, Lab Bench, Universal Storage Bins and Answer.
OSHPD’s objective is to promote health care accessibility through leadership in analyzing California’s health care infrastructure and assuring the safety of buildings used in providing health care, which includes making sure buildings and their furnishings can withstand seismic activity. To that end, utilizing pre-approved products for construction and furnishing of new health care facilities is faster and more cost effective.
“Nurture is extremely pleased to receive this certification from OSHPD. We’ve been working hard to pioneer this effort with modular products. To receive this pre-approval is an important step in providing health care solutions that meet the needs of many organizations in California and reflects the hard work of our people here,” said Michael Love, president of Nurture by Steelcase.
Montage is a stackable frame and tile system used in designing modular nurse and reception stations. The unique adaptability of Montage makes it an excellent solution to effectively meet the needs of a variety of users throughout a health care facility. Montage’s modular design allows the user to create the right fit and also allows for changes over time. Montage is Cradle-to-Cradle certified and SCS Indoor Advantage Indoor Air Quality certified.
The ShareLink 8 wall-mounted computer station is designed to help staff capture, access and share information technology in examination rooms, patient rooms, nurses' stations, surgical facilities and research labs — wherever precise and secure data is required and recorded. It features a 24-inch keyboard height adjustment range and one-hand height adjustment activation. A steel CPU cover safeguards hardware from the bumps of mobile equipment. A perforated CPU access door disperses heat to ensure uninterrupted and secure work.
