Pinders Healthcare Design Awards

The Awards

The Healthcare Design Awards seek to acknowledge the contribution made by designers, architects and the owners of care homes, hospitals and other care schemes to the well-being and quality of life for those in their care.

Whilst architectural standards and innovation are key factors, the overriding test for any project has to be the degree to which it has recognised the needs and desires of the residents and incorporated these into the final design.

The awards also recognise the important contribution made by the owners of all types of care facility – irrespective of size or category of care. The judges will be looking to reward quality of care, achieved through quality of design, rather than design alone.

The Categories

Entries are invited in respect of new build, extensions and redevelopment of

  • Care homes for the elderly
  • Care homes for those with mental illness or learning disabilities
  • Extra care / assisted living / care villages
  • Hospitals / clinics / secure units
  • Homes or houses for those with sensory impairment
  • Sheltered housing, close care projects and other types of care facility

The Prizes

The top three entrants nominated in each category will be invited to attend a gala presentation luncheon in London as the guests of the award sponsors.

The finalists in each category will receive a framed certificate to commemorate their achievement and £500 for their chosen charity. The winners of each category will also receive a specially commissioned award for display within the winning home.

As well as being featured in ‘Healthcare Business’ magazine, the nominated homes and those associated with them will undoubtedly enjoy other marketing opportunities arising from their success.
