Unicel Wins FacilityCare Magazine’s Top Products Award for Nebraska Hospital Project

Unicel Architectural today announced that it has been recognized with a FacilityCare Magazine “Top Products” award for its Vision Control® project as part of a patient wing in the Community Hospital in McCook, Nebraska.

The Community Hospital provides advanced care to the residents of southwest Nebraska and northwest Kansas.More than 30 Vision Control® hermetically-sealed glass units with integrated cord-free louvers were employed to ensure adjustable privacy in patient rooms and nursing stations.

“FacilityCare Magazine focuses on healthcare facilities managers with information to help them overcome challenges and operate at the highest standards,” said Jean-François Couturier, CEO of Unicel Architectural. “Having our louvered glazing solution recognized as a top product is high praise indeed. Hundreds of hospitals around the world rely on Vision Control® for unprecedented control of vision, daylight, heat and sound. We are proud to have contributed to the Community Hospital’s high standards for patient care.”

At the Community Hospital, Vision Control® integrated louvers in interior windows allow for partial or complete privacy, and darkening as required. The integrated louvers also help attenuate noise for more tranquil recovery environments. Supporting a decentralized nursing model, a built-in desk and computer outside every two patient rooms allow nurses to view the patients in two rooms at once through monitoring windows without disturbing the patients. Vision Control® units permit nurses to angle louvers for discreet observation, or to close them for complete privacy. Additionally, their opaque interlocking louver blades block off 99 percent of light, ensuring that patients obtain a good night’s rest.
