Initiatives to improve the patient experience are apparent to visitors at hospitals and other healing environments. Dining areas serve restaurant-quality food, lounges are appointed with modern artwork and accent pieces and, patient rooms have been transformed to better serve the needs of patients and their families. Each initiative is redefining how patient care is delivered.

The furniture layouts that fill these spaces are also evolving to meet new expectations. Wieland’s efforts center on enhancing the patient experience through the functionality of its furnishings. Since its establishment in 1977, Wieland has been dedicated to optimizing furniture comfort, durability, renewability, and functionality.

Wieland’s sleepToo™ sleep sofa puts the patient and their family first by giving them a place to sleep, eat, work, relax, and play. It eliminates the need for additional furnishings by combining a height-adjustable table, storage compartments, seating, and a sleep surface into one complete piece. Storage units beneath the seats offer a place for patients to store their belongings. The sleep release button makes it easy to release the back and pull it down into a comfortable sleep surface. The table creates a convenient surface to eat, work, or play on.
