STAAT Mod wins Healthcare Environment Award

October 26, 2020

The Center for Health Design recognizes STAAT Mod, an acute-care modular, prefabricated kit of parts, with a 2020 Healthcare Environment Award.


The initial “temporary” solution of STAAT Mod was designed, fabricated, and installed in less than two months.


STAAT Mod won a Healthcare Environment Award in the COVID-Response, Acute Care category. The award encompasses STAAT Mod’s high quality, quick ship, temporary modular response to the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as an evolved design iteration that provides a higher level of flexibility, integrated systems, code compliance and durability for longer term solutions for additional applications. The evolved design has a useful life of 20 years and allows hospitals to add ICU inpatient capacity, as well as acuity-adaptable solutions for other challenges, such as swing space for facility renovations.


The award was given to HGA and The Boldt Company, who are partners on the design and fabrication of STAAT Mod. Debra Levin, Hon. FASID, EDAC, President and CEO of The Center for Health Design shared, “This year’s winners were truly remarkable in both the quality of the project but also in the depth of thought given to how design can optimize the patient experience and improve other outcomes.”


The initial “temporary” solution of STAAT Mod is providing ICU capacity in Maryland.


The evolved design provides higher level of flexibility in the kit of parts with acuity-adaptable inpatient rooms.
