Cedars-Sinai Medical Center

Altro Suprema chosen for strictest healthcare application at Cedars-Sinai

Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, California is a 958 bed hospital with over 2,000 physicians and 10,000 employees. It is one of the leading medical centers in the United States and the world. With a Community Benefit contribution of over $640 million in 2012, Cedars-Sinai is committed to providing access to the greatest health information, screenings, and care.

For the medical staff to offer the highest quality of care, Cedars-Sinai needed a brand new sterilization room that would ensure the equipment was up to the strictest hygienic standards.

The sterilization room must be the most sanitary location so as not to cross contaminate medical devices and compromise the safety of patients. The American Institute of Architects reported to the CDC that the flooring in sterilization rooms must be capable of withstanding harsh chemical agents for rigorous cleaning and disinfecting.

Haynes and Oakley, architects out of Sierra Madre, CA specified Altro Suprema for the sterilization room due to the product’s superior stain and chemical resistant properties. Rouse Company, installers from Rancho Dominquez, CA installed 426 square yards of Altro Suprema Wolf, ensuring a hygienic finish for the new sterilization room.

Altro Suprema stands up against the vast majority of harsh cleaning agents used in sterilization rooms, while its seamless, watertight profile helps protect against bacterial growth and contamination. The hygienic properties of Altro Suprema are ideal for even the strictest healthcare applications, allowing Cedars-Sinai Medical Center to provide the highest quality patient care.
