Home Press Release J+J Flooring Group partners with CHD Research Coalition

 Dalton — J+J Flooring Group announced it has joined The Center for Health Design’s Research Coalition as the exclusive industry partner. The CHD Research Coalition studies evidence-based design as it relates to the built environment—providing therapeutic, safe, efficient and effective healthcare settings.

Comprised of research professionals, design practitioners and healthcare administrators, the Research Coalition steers funding for healthcare design research, helps guide these projects to success, and develops information and tools for implementing evidence-based design in existing and new facilities. Members of the Research Coalition include individuals representing organizations such as HDR, SmithGroup, MedStar Health, Adelante Healthcare, Texas Tech University, Cornell University, Mercury Healthcare Consulting, and Gresham, Smith and Partners.

J+J Flooring Group has extensively promoted the principals of evidence-based design through the creation of focused continuing education units, technical documents and product research.

“We believe the emergence of evidence-based design is transforming the way buildings are being designed and operated, improving outcomes, and having a very positive impact on the quality of life for patients,” said David Daughtrey, J+J Flooring director of business development for healthcare markets.  “To that extent, we recognize the need for more research and the importance of the Research Coalition’s work, and we’re pleased to support it.”

“We are happy to welcome J&J Flooring Group as the sole partner of CHD’s Research Coalition. J&J Flooring Group has a strong understanding of the importance of research and a commitment to implementing evidence-based design into existing and new facilities, making them an ideal sponsor,” said Mark Goodman, vice president, business development, The Center for Health Design.  “Collaboration is an important element of our mission and with this partnership, the Research Coalition will continue to steer funding for healthcare design research, guide projects to success and develop information and tools for implementing evidence-based design into facilities.”
