Nightingale Awards 2024 Open For Entries

The Nightingale Awards program is accepting product entries for 2024. The annual awards honor new healthcare and contract (non-residential) products that are exhibited at the 2024 Healthcare Design Conference + Expo, held Oct. 5-8, at the Indiana Convention Center in Indianapolis.

Presented by Healthcare Design magazine in partnership with the HCD Conference + Expo, the Nightingale Awards recognize contributions to the healthcare built environment through product design and innovation that contribute to healing. 

Nightingale competition guidelines

The product competition is open only to companies that are exhibitors during the 2024 HCD Conference. Products introduced to the U.S. market after Nov. 1, 2023, and not judged in previous Nightingale Awards are eligible for submission.

There are 18 product categories. Each manufacturer/brand may enter as many products into the competition as they wish, and products may be entered into one or more categories as the product fits.

A jury of healthcare design professionals and facility managers will review entries digitally prior to visiting the exhibitors’ booths (before the expo hall opens to attendees) to examine the products in person and ask questions of the manufacturers.
