Mohawk Group’s Cynthia Hubbell, VP of Healthcare & Senior Living, talks about sustainability in Healthcare Facilities today.
Serving all those who live, heal and work in healthcare facilities is the primary goal for the design of healthcare communities today, and sustainability plays an ever-increasing role in support of that goal.
In recent years, sustainability within the built environment has moved far beyond the basic preservation of natural resources, and flooring design is evolving rapidly to meet the new challenges. We’re excited to be at the forefront of this advancement.
Almost exactly five years ago I learned a leadership lesson I never wanted to learn. But as I look back on this anniversary and one that makes Valentine’s Day bittersweet, I appreciate that I grew personally and professionally in a way I might never have otherwise.
My husband died in January 2013. Steve had been diagnosed with Stage 4 pancreatic cancer only eight months before. The news came as a shock to me, my then 24-year-old daughter, my stepchildren and our larger community of family and friends.
Have you ever considered a WELL precondition and wondered where to begin? Not to fret! We’ve launched a Navigating preconditions series to help project teams get started incorporating a number of preconditions from different WELL concepts into their project’s design and policies.
Considering that 90% of a company’s operating costs are spent on personnel, it’s no surprise that some of the earliest adopters of WELL have been commercial office spaces. It hasn’t taken long for human resources professionals and executives across the globe to realize that prioritizing people results in substantial return on investment. For companies in the building design, operations or construction industries, WELL is about more than creating a healthier workplace.
I wouldn’t call myself a HUGE Bon Jovi fan, but when thinking about February, a.k.a. heart health month, and public opinion, all that comes to mind is “You give FATS a bad name!” I am a child from the 1980’s and love some good Rock n’ Roll. I also grew up on the idea that fat in food was bad. The food industry used this trend to start producing many low fat or fat free products and replaced the fat with sugar or carbohydrates. Unfortunately, I think this perception continues to invade the minds of those outside health-related or nutrition fields.

In February of 2016, we committed $3 million over three years to SeriousFun Children’s Network. Our support will enable nearly 1,000 children, many with rare diseases, to attend SeriousFun’s transformative camps and programs free of charge. This is a look at our partnership in year two!
Our volunteers had this to say (and more) in the video above:
"What I experienced at camp was beyond my expectations."
"Every camper was made to feel that FUN was the most important goal (of the day)."
"The campers attitudes and strength were absolutely contagious."
