Winners were announced during a celebratory gala banquet June 13 in Chicago, with categories varying from management and sales to communications and media from a field of more than 3,300 entrants.

Span-Americas creative promotional video dubbed the Encore Bed Waltz won a first place, gold award at the event. The video introduces Span-Americas Encore(TM) advanced technology bed for long term care and can be viewed on YouTube at or the companys website.

The imaginative video highlights the ENCOREs state-of-the-art features, showing how solutions to some of todays most critical challenges in resident care have been integrated into the beds design.

Span-America Medical Systems has a more than 30 year history in the design and engineering of specialized healthcare products, such as its technologically advanced PressureGuard(R) powered mattresses for long term care. Following its 2012 acquisition of beds and furniture manufacturer, MC Healthcare Products, Inc. of Beamsville Ontario, the company entered the resident care beds market. The acquisition significantly expanded Span-Americas product lines and marketing footprint in the industry.

Span-America was also honored for the initiatives by their marketing team. The team won an ABA Stevie Silver Award for the coordinated Encore bed marketing campaign which, in addition to the gold award-winning video and a 12-page musically themed brochure, includes the digital interactive 3D Virtual Bed and Bed Configurator app.    

The marketing team developed these online tools to provide the Span-America reps across America, and their customers who include clinicians and corporate healthcare buyers a virtual showroom environment in which to experience company products. Using the 3D virtual tool, clinicians can simulate the operation of the beds motors which put the bed through its various therapeutic positions and then using the Configurator select the most suitable bed model and options.

Span-America wishes to acknowledge the creative contributions to the award-winning initiatives made by their service providers. The Encore Bed Waltz video was developed and animated to music for Span-America by the Greenville area creative house OSA Marketing DigiTeam, who also animated the 3D Virtual Bed and partnered with GrippeCreative and Digital Elixir Studios in development of the themed brochure and Bed Configurator respectively.

Awards in additional categories will be announced during a gala event in San Francisco on September 12 where Span-Americas Configurator app is a finalist for another prestigious award.
