It’s probably no surprise that healthcare facilities require very specific furniture to keep their doctors, patients and visitors comfortable and safe. Due to the nature of hospitals and other healthcare facilities, furniture that resists the growth of bacteria and the spread of germs must be used. In addition, bariatric chairs and very specific types of exam room furniture must be offered in order to keep any and all patients as safe as possible during their stay. The things to consider when outfitting a healthcare facility with the appropriate furniture are seemingly endless, so it’s easy to become overwhelmed in the attempt to cover all the bases. Take a look at some of the services and capabilities that the furniture experts at National Business Furniture offer to make your healthcare furniture shopping experience as easy as possible.

In-House Healthcare Design and Space Planning Services

At NBF, we know that creating the right environment in a healthcare setting is critical in promoting healing, improving morale and attracting patients to your facility. Our professional in-house healthcare design staff work closely with architects, facility managers and internal staff to deliver a finished project that meets or exceeds the individual location objectives. The best part? Our in-house design services are completely free when you order your healthcare furnishings from NBF.

In-Field Healthcare Sales Representatives

In addition to our talented designers, we also have in-field healthcare sales representatives in 25 major markets, and our healthcare-focused professionals can provide on-site consultations and custom project solutions at no cost to you. Our dedicated healthcare team even provides project management services for large furniture installations at no charge.

Exclusive GPO Pricing

We offer our enormous selection, excellent value and caring customer service with group purchasing organization (GPO) pricing. GPOs save the healthcare industry billions of dollars per year, which effectively counters ever-rising medical costs. That’s why you can shop confidently at NBF, knowing that you’ll receive the very best price on your new furnishings.

Furniture that Works

A critical component of creating a positive patient experience is providing a welcoming atmosphere for all visitors, regardless of size or disability. NBF has products to accommodate all patients safely and comfortably, including bariatric, geriatric and pediatric visitors. We even offer products for specialized healthcare environments, including orthopedic spaces, infusion centers, behavioral health facilities and high traffic emergency rooms. Because we recognize the importance of family support in the healing process, we also offer products that integrate visitors into lobbies and patient rooms comfortably. To provide an easy way to create a calming, serene atmosphere, we have an extensive offering of artwork, textiles and accessories that facilitate warm, welcoming, patient-centered healing experience. Our healthcare furniture experts work directly with each healthcare facility to create a customized solution that meets their individual aesthetic, function and budgetary needs. We work with more than 150 suppliers that carry over 6000 items to offer an unmatched breadth of products that can meet any budget without sacrificing quality, durability or safety.

Our highly-trained specialists take a great deal of pride in helping customers find the right furniture to fit their needs, be it for a healthcare facility or otherwise.

“My experience with Jane Spotts and National Business Furniture was very professional from the start. Jane was very interested in our organization’s exact needs and preferences, down to the intricate furniture details, and won our business during our RFP process. She prepared a flexible product offerings list for our clients, all while staying within our budgetary constraints. On a day-to-day basis, Jane is very responsive to our needs as a sales representative. I can count on her to ensure that all orders are placed on time, and all physicians’ preferences are addressed. Lastly, when small issues have arisen, Jane is quick to rectify the situation!”

Jane and the team were very efficient, as they professionally and conveniently worked around associates and visitors. The overall process was smooth from start to finish and I will definitely contact Jane and National Business Furniture for any future needs.”
