KI Knows Healthcare
From sophisticated color palettes to new healthcare furniture, hospital environments have evolved from sterile, austere environments into healing environments. The new look and feel of healthcare facilities offers patients a sense of hospitality with spa-like surroundings. The combination of soft lighting, soothing colors and comfortable healthcare furniture makes patients and guests alike feel at ease, which should speed recovery. And, our healthcare furniture is designed to do just that – provide comfort and assist in the healing process.
KI is a leader in the healthcare furniture industry, featured often in Healthcare Spaces. From the introduction of the Warren® and Rose™ chairs that revolutionized patient-centered furniture nearly 30 years ago to today's Soltíce™ Collection, winner of the 2005 Nightingale Award, KI has always had a deep understanding of the nuances of healing environments.
KI's healthcare furniture portfolio also includes high-density storage from Spacesaver and healthcare upholsteries and cubicle curtains from Pallas Textiles. Together, the companies offer more than 1,500 furniture and textiles product lines for use in healthcare, business and educational environments.
Our healthcare furniture creates a visual signature from the reception area to the patient room and everywhere in between, including lobby, lounge and waiting rooms; break rooms and cafeterias; consultative offices, conference rooms and administrative areas; even training rooms and residence hall furnishings for on-call staff. KI products are unmatched for quality, innovation and design.
Tailored Healthcare Furniture Solutions
With advances in healthcare technology, equipment and an increasing expectation of level of care, hospitals are in a constant state of change. That's why KI addresses each healthcare customer as a "Market of One", creating optimum healthcare furniture solutions around individual requirements.
We carefully evaluate each customer’s unique situation to determine the best possible solution. A standard product might fit the requirements, but if needed, KI can easily modify a standard product or design a tailored product solutionoften for nearly the same cost.
How? It's simple. We've structured our manufacturing facilities in flexible cells. This approach makes it easy for our plants to handle special requests. KI can easily produce multiple or single items. Cellular manufacturing enables us to offer tailored product solutions in addition to standard offering.
Custom Orders Common at KI
The capability to customize options distinguishes KI from most other healthcare furniture manufacturers. In fact, developing tailored product solutions is common practice at KI. Custom requests make up more than 17 percent of our total business, compared to an average of less than 1 percent for competitors. The result: superior healthcare furniture tailored specifically to a customer's needs.
KI’s hospital furniture is designed to successfully meet the needs of medical facilities and the people they serve. Our furniture helps medical staff work more productively, patients heal more quickly and family members relax more easily. That’s the essence of creating a true healing environment.
