The Beaumont Health 2 South Surgery Center Waiting Area is designed to be a calming and comforting environment for the patient's families and visitors.
Organic, nature inspired flooring design is utilized to create a healing environment. As the primary waiting room for a busy surgical center, this space creates the very important first impression for patients and visitors alike. Luxury vinyl flooring in a wood-look pattern, combined with intricate metallic floor patterns, provide visual interest and flow throughout the space.
Beaumont Health is #2 nationally ranked and Michigan's largest health care system. Beaumont Royal Oak hospital is an 1,100 bed facility and is operational 24 hours a day. The challenge was to install the LVT from 8:00pm-4:30am and to be completed in three weeks, while still maintaining the space for staff, families and visitors. The installation was completed at night, with the waiting room clean and ready each morning for visitors. LVT was suggested as the preferred flooring option due to its durability, ease of maintenance and visual aesthetic. Proper containment and maintaining a healthy environment at all times was also an installation challenge that was met. The overall result of the flooring design and installation provides Beaumont's patients and visitors a healthy and healing environment while allowing for proper maintenance and required performance.
