WE BELIEVE THAT CHANGE CAN COME FROM TRULY ENRICHING THE MOMENTS THAT MATTER MOST.

Healthcare is experiencing rapid change that can often feel overwhelming. At OpenSquare and Steelcase Health, we look for the changes that are possible.

Changes that are meaningful.
Changes that are personal.
Changes that can be pivotal for the people involved.

We study the places that support health and then deliver insights, applications and solutions designed to create moments that can lead to change. Moments that enhance the wellbeing, empathy and connection of clinicians, patients and families.

We believe in the power of place.

SUPPORTING THE SAFETY + WELLBEING OF NURSES AND CLINICIANS
As the way of change shifts our healthcare system from diagnosis and treatment to prevention and wellness, clinicians and nurses play a key role in shaping the healthcare environment and the patient experience.

Clinicians and nurses are highly susceptible to workplace injuries. While we look to advance our healthcare model, experience and environment, it’s important to also consider the professional caregiver.

Steelcase Health conducted a survey of U.S. and Canadian clinicians to understand the challenges clinicians and nurses face while at work and to quantify and evaluate perceptions of potential risks to both their and their patients’ wellbeing.
