As specialists in pediatric care, Children's Hospital & Medical Center has been recognized as a Best Children's Hospital by U.S. News & World Report in cardiology and heart surgery as well as orthopedics. Located in Omaha, the 145-bed, non-profit hospital houses the only dedicated pediatric emergency department and in-house services by pediatric critical care specialists in the state.

Recently the center underwent a design renovation. Powerbond has been the go-to flooring for Omaha's Children's Hospital & Medical Center for many years for its compelling floor inlays as well as durability, according to Robert Holm, senior professional associate for HDR, Omaha. "The HDR design team and Children's clients are so pleased with Powerbond that no other floorcovering is considered. The hospital has used broadloom and modular in the past but they just didn't perform in the high traffic areas," says Holm. The extreme durability of Powerbond and the simple and effective maintenance procedures help make it the most fiscally responsible option available to building owners.

Powerbond is a unique hybrid resilient floorcovering. Its closed-cell construction allows Powerbond to be a medium for innovative design with the easy installation of inlays and borders that can be molecularly bonded to maintain moisture impermeability. Holm's inlay design for the Specialty Pediatric Center relies heavily on Powerbond flooring for theme creation and way finding. The unique and repetitive images were then manufactured at Tarkett and shipped to the job-site to be inset into Powerbond with chemically welded seams.

In addition to Powerbond's money-saving and design attributes, it also supports a healthier indoor environment by improving building acoustics, providing comfort underfoot for staff and visitors and contributing to better indoor air quality. The proven durability and the product's 100% recyclability also make Powerbond an environmentally responsible flooring choice. The qualities of Powerbond have been proven for more than four decades and make it ideal for any healthcare environment.
