Hillsboro Area Hospital and Health System NFP

Hillsboro, Illinois

Hillsboro Area Hospital and Health System NFP both selected Louer to provide furniture for their 23,300 square foot addition and renovation completed in May. The selection was through a competitive solicitation for products and services that was managed by the architects, Space LLC, in St. Louis. Criteria for dealer selection included competitive pricing as well as exceeding the standards for quality and performance established by the owner and the architect.

Working closely with Space, we were able to compliment their selections and assist in finding products that met the owner's requirement to use products from the Broadlane Group Purchasing Contract. Additionally, selections were made to support the LEED Gold standard being pursued by the project. Furniture manufacturers for the project included Haworth, Carolina Seating, KI and Humanscale. The contractor for the project was Alberici.

Hospital CEO, Rex Brown, said "Price and quality are always important and adding eco-friendly to the mix was exciting for us, but not our area of expertise. Finding a team with experience in healthcare and academic applications was very important, too. We had extensive questions related to aspects of our project and the staff at Louer took the time to listen and relate to us on a personal level before they shared what they could do for us with their expertise. Ultimately, they delivered the entire package and more. We are very satisfied."
