Key Performance Drivers
Flooring is not a single element or design feature – it is an asset in health, safety, and patient outcomes. It is the foundation of care, so simple, yet so complex, the floor justifies why aesthetics and performance characteristics are foundational to health, wellness, and safety, for those who heal, work and visit there.
Right Product. Right Space.
Design drivers are flexibility, resilience, sustainability, and target value to design to sustain the ever-changing needs of our healthcare partners.
Selection, specification, and installation can positively impact patient experience, safety, and caregiver fatigue. With an actionable impact on operational optimization and clinical efficiency, ease of maintenance reduces the total cost of ownership.

Responsible use of PVC
Our sustainability initiatives are centered on our commitment to creating healthier environments indoors and out. In healthcare, the performance characteristics of the floor are a key decision driver. Selecting a product that lasts and can be recycled almost ad infinitum, helps process, people, and the planet.
That said, responsible use of PVC in flooring is key. As committed followers of the Cradle to Cradle® methodology and a circular economy, we apply the same sustainable thinking to all our PVC products. Contributing to healthier spaces and good indoor air quality.
Patient Experience & HCAHPS
