The healthcare industry is constantly changing to respond to our society’s needs. Healthcare spaces must evolve as well to meet these challenges.

Within the healthcare industry, it’s important to maintain a space that reflects utmost cleanliness and professionalism. Our casework is custom tailored to specific spaces across healthcare and medical professions.
Utilizing The Right Materials For Medical Industry Casework
When referring to casework and millwork for healthcare we’re considering workstations, cabinets, shelves, and storage units. You’ll see these pieces used throughout facilities, including reception areas, check-up and operating rooms, and laboratories.
Healthcare casework is typically made from wood, laminate, metal, or stainless steel to withstand frequent use and to be easily cleaned and sterilized.
Stainless steel is non-porous, meaning bacteria and viruses cannot adhere. Routine cleaning will leave the surface sanitized, a must for healthcare industries. Stainless steel also boasts corrosion resistance and will not rust even after years of use and constant cleaning.
Laminate is particularly cost effective and perfect for storage needs and heavy load capacities. These surfaces are both professional and practical; easy to clean, durable, and offer bonus perks like soft-close doors and customizable hardware to seamlessly blend into existing casework.
The perfect atmosphere can be achieved regardless of the material used, across a range of spatial needs. Laminate is great for office desk and cabinets, as well as reception areas. Stainless steel can be used to attract a sleek, modern look in a laboratory or lobby. Wood is timeless and welcoming, and great for consultation offices.
Regardless of the space, we can accommodate and help select the best material for the environment based on aesthetic and practicality.
Healthcare Storage Systems Increase Productivity
Most facilities in healthcare are operating with limited space, both for daily operations and storage.
Employees don’t have time to rummage through disorganized storage systems to find the tools and equipment they need. Less time spent on locating files and tools means more time with patients. Better storage solutions utilize modern tech like RFID smart cabinets and casework that is designed for efficiency.
Whether a permanent solution is needed or temporary/modular applications, DH Schmidt’s expertise in healthcare storage systems can offer effective solves for the trickiest of situations. We can provide casework for existing space as well as new builds that need to be used in tandem with construction.
DH Schmidt is Committed to Quality Craftsmanship and Design
Casework for healthcare and other specialized medical fields requires thoughtful consideration. Materials need to be selected for their aesthetics, durability, and ability to withstand constant cleaning and sterilization.
With the constant need for evolution, many healthcare spaces are in seemingly constant construction. Whether expanding current space or building new, being able to utilize smart spatial options during a rebuild is crucial to those that depend on the care.
Nobody loves working out of multiple spaces at once, so providing the caregivers and employees with easy and efficient storage during these times saves many headaches, time, and ultimately money.
DH Schmidt can provide custom-built cabinetry for hospitals and medical offices at any scale. Our expertise in a wide variety of materials, including metal, composites, acrylics, solid surface, and even fabric, allows us to create solutions that help your facility shine.
