Coral Springs, FL – October 25, 2021 – Healthcare Design magazine today in partnership with the Center for Health Design and The Healthcare Design Expo + Conference announced the winners of The Nightingale Awards 2021. Privacy Glass Solutions won the Innovation Award in Window Shading & Treatments with our new product, VISTA-Vision.
“Innovation is the key to growth for any company. To have won this award for our ongoing efforts in product innovation speaks volumes for our strategic vision,” said Kevin Roth, CEO, and founder of Privacy Glass Solutions. “We developed VISTA-Vision in direct response to our existing customers’ feedback. We added proven features from another of our product lines and the combination has proven to be successful.”
The Nightingale Awards, the industry’s leading program to recognize products related to the healthcare built environment, are named for Florence Nightingale, a tireless advocate for the improvement of care and conditions in military and civilian hospitals in the 1800s. The judging criteria for the awards are the product’s contribution to a healing environment along with aesthetics and innovation; contribution or solution for clinical or operational outcomes; durability, functionality, and quality; environmental sustainability; industry certifications and standards; and list price. To evaluate the entries, jurors visited exhibitors’ booths before the Healthcare Design Expo opened to examine the products, hear the story of their design and development, and ask questions.
“Innovation has been a trending buzzword for many years. We take that initiative seriously and it has become part of our daily work ethic”, said Jamie Clingan, Chief Marketing Officer, Privacy Glass Solutions.
