Kolar Design recently participated in the always inspirational and educational 2017 Healthcare Design Conference. Three days to interact and discuss with designers from Architects to Interior Designers alongside Administrators, Researchers, and Nurses – all helping to craft the future of healthcare design. Discussing everything from reimagining the patient experience to global trends that are having a lasting impact in the industry.

Healthcare has been one of the vital market in Kolar’s history – not just in regards to the number of projects but the rich opportunity to connect people with place.

Attendees were able to interact with our team and it’s award-winning work in the healthcare market at our booth entitled – “Partnering For Your Brand Success.”

“Susan Ryckman from Golisano Children’s Hospital of Southwest Florida’s presentation left a lasting mark. Susan and her team introduced a new perspective on their facility through the hiring of an outside consultant focused on ‘theming’. It took a tremendous pediatric healthcare experience into a remarkable one.”
