Cobalt Medical Development set out to create a state-of-the-art physical rehabilitation center, a place for patients to heal after a major surgery or catastrophic illness. To support a residential aesthetic and offer home-like comfort, the Cobalt team in Surprise, Arizona, approached KI for a variety of upscale and elegant yet practical furnishings for this healthcare facility.

KI was able to produce alternatives at every scale of the budget; from economical to high-end.
As the main furnishings for the lobby and family gathering areas, the Cobalt team selected KI’s sophisticated Soltice® Metal Collection, upholstered with carefully curated Pallas® Textiles. The collection quickly became a favorite among staff for its ease of cleaning and adaptable design throughout various seating spaces.
With the patient always top of mind, the Cobalt team sought counsel from KI for space planning that would help patients feel at home, which is thought to help patients heal more quickly.
“KI was able to direct and educate us on space planning within our facility. We appreciated the tailored furniture specifications, especially the tablet arms that could be used by either right- or left-handed individuals,” said Jay Quintana, COO of Cobalt Medical Development.
Staff and patients alike commented on the contemporary feel of the furniture throughout the facility. Hub® Lounge Seating, along with Grazie® Stack Chairs, accented the cafeteria and transformed a place to eat into a more social, dynamic area for patients and families to engage and share a meal.
Patient rooms continued the sophisticated, elegant aesthetic with Soltice® Recliners and Dante® bedside cabinets. Staff office areas were supported by practical yet beautiful furnishings, including Aristotle® Casegoods and Sift® Task Chairs.
KI’s flexibility and budget-sense was important to the Cobalt team. “KI was able to produce alternatives at every scale of the budget; from economical to high-end,” said Mr. Quintana.
Based on the striking appeal of the sophisticated furnishings at the Surprise medical facility, the Cobalt team decided to engage KI space planning and furniture at each new facility. Each location will be regionally customized to the individual needs of the community it serves.
