Tarkett in Partnerships with Healthcare Groups
Chagrin Falls, OH, March 28, 2014 -- Tarkett said it has formed collaborative partnerships with four leading healthcare organizations: NXT Health, Planetree, Practice Greenhealth, and The Center for Health Design.
The partnerships are integral elements of the Tarkett North America Healthcare Program, the company said.
Tarkett said the partners were chosen to provide a well-rounded methodology to the topics and trends that are shaping the healthcare industry.
A primary goal of the North America Healthcare Program, Tarkett said, is to establish flooring as an active part of the healing environment, through safety, quiet, comfort and other contributing factors.
The mission of NXT Health is to sponsor collaborative design innovation in order to enhance the healthcare experience and improve the delivery of care.
Planetree, a leader advancing patient-centered care solutions, has been partnering with health care organizations for nearly 40 years.
Practice Greenhealth is a nonprofit membership organization founded on the principles of positive environmental stewardship and best practices by organizations in the healthcare community. Tarkett is the first and only flooring manufacturer to become a member of Practice Greenhealth.
The Center for Health Design is a nonprofit organization that engages and supports professionals and organizations in the healthcare and design industry to improve the quality of healthcare facilities and create new environments for healthy aging.
Throughout 2014, Tarkett will be working with CHD’s research collaborative, known as “The Pebble Project” on best practices and applications in healthcare flooring.
