Dover’s do - over

Altro Wood 

Prime Healthcare Network doesn’t treat patients – only other hospitals.

The Ontario, California-based healthcare company purchases and transforms downtrodden hospitals and hospital groups into the beacons of healing they should be.

They now own 45 hospitals in 14 states. Since 2005, their equipment and capital investments have surpassed a billion dollars, and they’ve secured many last-second rescues for hospitals at risk of closing their doors.

After purchasing the Saint Clare’s Health Network of New Jersey in early 2015, they worked with Posen Architects to improve hospital appearances and upgraded pharmacies to meet USP 797 and 800 regulations.

For Saint Clare’s Dover Hospital, Posen Architects selected Altro Wood sheet vinyl flooring in colour Autumn Maple for use in the CTscan, Fluoroscopy and X-ray suites.

Other Prime Healthcare owned hospitals, along the west coast, have used Altro products, and their success influenced the use of more Altro in Prime’s eastward voyage into New Jersey.

Altro Wood, an attractive 2 mm wood-look flooring, is available in a range of designs and plank sizes to suit a design’s needs, capable of creating a homey and warm atmosphere. Designed to cope with medium to heavy traffic, Altro Wood not only provided Dover Hospital an attractive solution, but the performance needed for the everyday use from patients, nurses and doctors.

Patients are nervous even for routine checkups – needing to use a CTscan, Fluoroscopy or X-ray room only serves to heighten anxiety, and typical white walls and tiles don’t help matters.

A warm and inviting atmosphere, like Altro Wood, can help alleviate the trepidations of hospital visits.
