Although Caroline and the parent company OFS officially sponsored the presentation at last year’s Healthcare Design Expo & Conference, we’ve been a strong supporter of the HCD since its inception,” said Stan Grey, Caroline’s Director of Healthcare. HCD strives to increase knowledge of how design directly affects the safety, efficiency, clinical outcomes and financial success of healthcare facilities, and brings together industry leaders in education and networking. As the main sponsor, Carolina will provide significant financial support to industry events during the exhibition, while providing an ideal platform to promote brand change. With this significant investment, Carolina sees the value of this program,” added Mark Lindh, director of the Emerald and Health Exhibitions partnership program.
