Behavioral Healthcare Furniture Featured Installation: Northcoast Behavioral Healthcare
An Ohio behavioral healthcare facility that this year completed a $68 million renovation of its facilities that began in July 2013, recently installed multiple Norix Furniture products in common areas and patient rooms. Northcoast Behavioral Healthcare, located in Northfield, OH, finished construction that made improvements to existing facilities and expanded the hospital by more than 100,000 square feet, including the addition of patient units and recreational, clinical and dietary areas, according to its website.
As part of the renovation, the facility purchased behavioral healthcare furniture from Norix that humanizes facilities that often have been institutional in nature. The furniture, which comes in the colors of nature, is more residential than typical BHC products and helps in the healing process by normalizing facilities, calming the equilibrium and reducing stress, among other benefits.
Products that the facility purchased include:
Hondo Nuevo® Series – A contemporary line of unique furniture that combines superior durability, comfort and style and that includes chair, bench and wedge options that allow for flexible, modular seating arrangements. Attenda Series – The Attenda collection is designed to provide the strength, safety and cleanability required for the daily rigors of constant use living — in a sleek, contemporary look. The series includes beds, nightstands, wardrobes, chests, shelves and more.
Ultra-Max® Guest Chairs – The versatile Ultra-Max arm and armless chairs are ideally suited for desk or table seating in day rooms, group space and sleeping quarters.
Comfort Shield® Remedy Sealed Seam Mattress – These mattresses feature 100 percent sealed seams that are radio frequency welded and guaranteed not to break – for enhanced hygiene, security and durability.
X-Base Tables – These tables feature high quality laminate surfaces with an edge that is pressure fused to the core with a specially formulated, highly durable molded urethane material. The permanently affixed edge has a radius profile for safety and comfort making it exceptional for food service applications.
Oasis Cafeteria Tables – Oasis’ innovative swivel seats allow easy access and provide the comfort of full lumbar support. The molded polyethylene seat shells are durable and easy to clean. Seats attach securely to reinforced, heavy-duty swivel plates with all-steel, tamper-resistant connections.
