PHILADELPHIA, Sept. 9, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- EIR Healthcare, the modular innovation firm bringing efficient industrial practices to healthcare, real estate and hospitality, is excited to announce that it is a winner in the Health category of this year's Fast Company's 2019 Innovation by Design Awards. EIR Healthcare is also receiving an Honorable Mention in the General Excellence category.
EIR Healthcare's winning product, MedModular, is a factory-made "hospital room in a box," prefabricated and delivered on-site to the healthcare facility. EIR is the first company linking industrial engineering, construction, technology and patient care to garner a solution to the traditionally considered "fixed cost" of hospital development.
"Integrated Design is part of the core DNA at EIR Healthcare, it's what makes us unique and empowers us to build a better future, to build it faster, at higher quality while staying cost efficient," said EIR Healthcare CEO, Grant Geiger. "We're honored that Fast Company and their panel of judges have recognized this mindset – it is a huge validation to our solution as we work to bring the 'hospital of the future' to life."
The awards, which can be found in the October 2019 issue of Fast Company, recognize people, teams, and companies solving problems through design. Fast Company is recognizing an influential and diverse group of 483 leaders in fashion, architecture, graphic design, data visualization, social good, user experience, mobility, and more.
"For decades, designers have facilitated overconsumption," says Stephanie Mehta, editor-in-chief of Fast Company. "Now, the most ambitious in the field are addressing the grave problems consumption has wrought."
Winners, finalists, and honorable mentions are featured online and in the October issue of Fast Company magazine, on newsstands September 17. Winners will also be recognized at a special celebration at Fast Company's Innovation Festival in November. Fast Company editors and writers spend a year researching and reviewing applicants for the awards. This year's applicant pool was the most competitive ever, with more than 4,300 entries.
