Medelita™, Maker Of Breakthrough Lab Coats And Medical Scrubs For Female Clinicians, Announced Today That Its Logo Has Received A Davey Award

Innovative medical apparel designer’s logo represents the classic scrub pant drawstring and symbolizes the flexibility, strength and commitment of women in healthcare

The Medelita logo was designed by John Strain, graphic designer at Caliber Media Group, and was awarded a Silver Davey in the category of logo design and creation.

The Annual International Davey Award is a prestigious competition that celebrates the “Davids” of creativity. Borrowing from the story of David and the giant Goliath, this award is the first competition created specifically for smaller firms. David defeated the giant with “a big idea and a little rock.” The same strategy used by small firms whose strength comes from big ideas, not “stratospheric budgets.”

“We are thrilled that the Medelita logo has received a Davey Award. As a growing business, we can attest to the power of big ideas, which have been a cornerstone to our success,” said Medelita Founder Lara Manchik. Our logo’s design was inspired by the classic drawstrings of the traditional scrub pant. Although our scrubs and lab coats are designed with modern innovations and a feminine line, some time-honored features still exist. The drawstring representation symbolizes the flexibility, strength, and commitment of all women working in medicine.”

The philosophy behind the development of Medelita was, and continues to be, a desire to create a uniform that reflects the enormous strides that female clinicians have made in their profession, and the high standards to which they hold themselves. As an emergency room physician assistant, Manchik’s own experiences convinced her that the frumpy unisex garb of past failed to convey clinical competence and professionalism. She left healthcare and created Medelita as a departure from the boxy doctor’s lab coats and clinical scrubs – made for the male figure and representative of a time when men dominated all clinical fields of medicine.

With darting in the right places, Medelita scrubs and lab coats are designed to flatter the feminine figure, while still maintaining some of the classic professional details of traditional medical uniforms. Medelita uses high performance fabrics that repel fluids, resist stains and retard wrinkles. Requiring fewer cleanings than ordinary medical apparel, the Medelita fabric releases deeper stains during a typical laundering cycle and does not require the expense of commercial cleaning services. Owners of Medelita spend less time cleaning, reduce the use of environmental resources, and save money as they are not frequently replacing permanently stained uniforms.

Made from high-denier, 100-percent brushed cotton, the Medelita lab coat is designed specifically for women with a focus on fit and function. The tailored lab coat has a feminine shape with a rounded collar, hidden inside pocket, traditional side slits, and French finish inside seams. The fluid-resistant Medelita lab coat is available in sizes 0 to 20, with optional custom embroidery.

Medelita nursing scrubs and medical scrubs feature Dri-release® fabric that moves moisture away from the skin while FreshGuard® virtually eliminates odors in our medical uniforms. The luxuriously soft fabric prevents pilling, fading and shrinkage. The scrub tops’ darting at the bust increases comfort and shapeliness as does a contoured, modern waist that is higher in back, lower in front. With no-roll side panel pockets and a hidden money pocket, the Medelita scrub pants feature a slimming, up-to-date boot cut leg shape. Women’s sizes range from 0 – 14 (petite, tall and plus sizes coming soon).

Sophisticated, femininely tailored healthcare lab coats get stain-fighting and wrinkle-resistant features from smart fabric technologies

For the first time ever, healthcare industry lab coats get sophisticated, stain-fighting and wrinkle-resistant properties with the combination of DuPont Dual Action Teflon® fabric protector and HIGH IQ® Easycare fabric finish. Designed especially for a woman’s physique, Medelita’s all-cotton women’s lab coats repel and fight stains, while its machine washable fabric maintains a wrinkle-free, professional finish.

“Female healthcare practitioners have worked hard to get where they are in the medical industry, with women now constituting a majority in certain medical specialties,” says Medelita Founder Lara Manchik. “We believe that they deserve a woman’s lab coat that works just as hard as they do, and are extremely proud to be the first to design a flattering women’s lab coat that is also functional. You can’t see it or feel it, but the technology keeps our coats stain-free and sharp, right out of the dryer.

“In the medical field, image is as important as aptitude.”

As a female emergency room Physician Assistant, Manchik’s own experiences convinced her that the frumpy unisex garb of past failed to convey clinical competence and professionalism. To outfit her female colleagues with attire befitting their tireless efforts, clinician-turned-entrepreneur, Manchik created Medelita as a departure from the boxy doctor’s lab coats – made for the male figure and representative of a time when men dominated all clinical fields of medicine.

The Medelita lab coat is designed to repel fluids, which bead up and can be brushed off when spilled on the fabric, and require fewer cleanings than ordinary lab coats. Thanks to the Advanced Dual Action Teflon® fabric protector, the fabric releases deeper stains during a typical laundering cycle and does not require the expense of commercial cleaning services. Owners of the Medelita lab coat spend less time cleaning, reduce the use of environmental resources, and save money as they are not frequently replacing permanently stained coats.

“Just as athletes wear functional fabrics to enhance their performance during competition, the long days that our clients work are a true test of endurance,” says Manchik. “Moving freely and feeling comfortable all day in a lab coat, while maintaining a fresh, confident appearance, is very important to the conscientious modern female clinician.”

The Medelita lab coat relies on HIGH IQ® Easycare Plus high-tech fabric finish to maintain a clean and professional look, day after day. The high performance, low maintenance fabric emerges from the dryer without wrinkles and resists the destructive effects of cleaning cycles and everyday wear. In addition, the lab coat maintains its original shape, without sacrificing a soft and smooth-to-the-touch finish.

Made from high-denier, 100-percent brushed cotton, Medelita lab coats are designed specifically for women with a focus on fit and function. The tailored lab coat has a feminine shape with a rounded collar, hidden inside pocket, traditional side slits, and French finish inside seams. The fluid-resistant Medelita lab coat is available in sizes 0 to 20, with optional custom embroidery.

In addition to high quality lab coats, Medelita provides a line of performance women’s healthcare apparel, including clinician scrubs and nursing scrubs, which are available for purchase at www.medelita.com.

Honoring National Nurse Practitioner Week!

You’ve been there before. Sitting in a doctor’s examining room, holding together a wafer-thin way-too-revealing gown, paper crinkling under you as you shift uncomfortably and wait for what you assume will be a 10-minute exam (max) with a doctor juggling too many patients and too little time.

Then in she walks, wearing clinician scrubs, a lab coat, and a warm smile. She proceeds to do something you least expect: sit down and talk to you. More specifically, ask you — not just about your symptoms, but about your concerns, your goals, your job, your hobbies, your family, your life. Even more amazing: she actually listens! And not just with a stethoscope, but with her undivided attention.

Who is this competent, highly professional and genuinely concerned woman? You’re looking at a typical example of one of the approximately 120,000 Nurse Practitioners (NPs) practicing their unique approach to whole-person care in healthcare environments across the U.S. Increasing numbers of patients are choosing to receive their primary as well as specialty care from NPs, and for very good reason.

NPs are licensed advanced practice nurses who provide a wide scope of healthcare services similar to those provided by a doctor, in an equally wide range of clinical settings. And they’ve definitely earned the lab coats they wear. With advanced, clinical training and graduate education, on top of their training and often extensive real-world experience as registered nurses, NPs are exceptionally well qualified to diagnose and treat a spectrum of health conditions. They are also well respected as leaders in their medical fields, and as innovators in high-quality, cost-effective patient care.

But don’t expect to find them resting on their laurels. NPs are busy practicing wherever doctors do — and don’t — including hospitals, clinics, private practice, emergency rooms, urgent care, schools, nursing homes, to name a few. Many NPs hold master’s degrees and doctorates, as well as extensive training in areas of specialization such as cardiovascular, oncology, neurology, neonatal, pediatric, and an array of sub-specialties.

While equipped with the skills, knowledge and experience to diagnose and treat, NPs place equal emphasis on care and cure. This extends not just to ordering the tests, developing the treatment plan, and writing the prescriptions, but also to managing patients’ overall well-being. NPs collaborate with their patients in their own health and wellness, through disease prevention, health education and counseling. By treating the person as well as the patient, NPs become a valuable source of information and guidance in making healthy life choices.

This unique whole-person approach to medical care has defined and distinguished NPs dating back to 1965, the year the first NP program launched at the University of Colorado. Forty-three years later, this core philosophy remains intact even while the role of NPs has continued to evolve with the changing needs of patients. Today, around 6,000 new NPs join the nation’s healthcare delivery system every year — the vast majority of them women who have already been practicing as nurses.

As NPs continue to improve the quality of care, they’re also lowering costs for the patients who come to rely on NPs as partners in health. In fact, patients who see NPs for their primary care often have fewer ER visits, shorter hospital stays and lower medication costs.

In honor of their vital contributions to patient care and health, the medical community recognizes November 9 – 15 as National Nurse Practitioner Week. Medelitatm, makers of premium hand-sewn lab coats and scrubs tailored for female clinicians, is pleased to draw special attention to this extraordinary group of professionals largely comprised of women.

“Nurse Practitioners epitomize the competence and confidence of the women who inspire our lab coats and scrubs,” says Medelita founder Lara Manchik, a Physician Assistant who has had the pleasure of working alongside many NPs. “They deserve to be recognized and rewarded for their exceptional level of personalized care. We strive to do this by offering NPs a better alternative in female clinician apparel and lab coats — one that reflects the careful attention to detail they offer their own patients.”

Adds Manchik, “NPs go out of their way to make people feel comfortable and confident with the care they’re receiving. We’re more than happy to return the favor.” To Nurse Practitioners caring for patients with equal parts compassion and knowledge, Medelita honors you. And thanks you.
