Saint Paul Hospital, Vietnam

Altro Whiterock provides hygienic solution for new high tech hospital centre

Altro Whiterock White, Altro Whiterock Satins

Saint Paul Hospital is a large multi-field medical complex situated in the central part of Hanoi – the capital of Vietnam. Established at the beginning of 20th Century, the Hospital is currently undergoing a through and systematic renovation and refurbishment. As part of this programme, one wing was converted to form the Hanoi High Tech and Digestive Center. With the support of international experts and state of the art equipment, the Center is designed to provide early cancer detection and effective minimally invasive surgical treatment.

To meet the high finishing standards required, 1400m² Altro Whiterock White and 300m² Altro Whiterock Satins were chosen for their hygienic properties, helping reduce the spread of infection to protect those undergoing examination and treatment.

Nick Robinson from VK Architects & Engineers said: “One of the key purposes of this project was the provision of a facility for skills transfer from international expert surgeons, so the client wanted to achieve European aesthetic and hygiene compliance standards. We were confident that Altro products could meet the required standards, the contractor handled the materials well, and the client was very pleased with the end result.”

Altro Whiterock is the hygienic alternative to tiles that’s impervious, grout-free with a stain-resistant, wipe-clean surface that leaves nowhere for bacteria to hide. Altro Whiterock Satins is a versatile and sophisticated wall cladding available in a range of solid, decorative, satin shades – from soothing and healing through to bright and energetic. Both Altro Whiterock White and Altro Whiterock Satins meet all current European Union (EU) Directives on health and hygiene.
