- They don’t just make furniture: they help people.The healthcare industry is complex with diverse groups of people, products, and equipment that keep operations moving and patients healing.

However, the products Wieland manufactures are essential in bringing comfort, functionality and rehabilitation to every patient served. They have observed physicians sitting on their sleep sofas while coaching family members and encouraging their patients. They’ve seen loved ones tote personal belongings to create a sense of home away from home. And, they’ve witnessed nurses empathize with patients while they recover from surgery in Wieland recliners. The products they build and the spaces they furnish provide lasting value and are fundamental to moving patient care forward.
- Wieland has created the Wieland Healthcare Nursing Scholarship to support the next generation of nurses who can make a difference in the healthcare field. High school seniors planning to go into nursing and college students currently pursuing a nursing degree are eligible to apply.
