J+J Flooring Group said it has become the exclusive industry partner for The Center for Health Design’s Research Coalition.
The center studies evidence-based design as it relates to providing therapeutic, safe, efficient and effective healthcare settings.
Comprised of research professionals, design practitioners and healthcare administrators, the center steers funding for healthcare design research, helps guide these projects to success, and develops information and tools for implementing evidence-based design in existing and new facilities.
Members include individuals representing organizations such as HDR, SmithGroup, MedStar Health, Adelante Healthcare, Texas Tech University, Cornell University, Mercury Healthcare Consulting, and Gresham, Smith and Partners.
“We believe the emergence of evidence-based design is transforming the way buildings are being designed and operated, improving outcomes, and having a very positive impact on the quality of life for patients,” said David Daughtrey, J+J flooring director of business development.
“To that extent, we recognize the need for more research and the importance of the Research Coalition’s work, and we’re pleased to support it.”
