Altro provides support every step of the way at Magee Rehabilitation Hospital

Altro Whiterock™, Altro Aquarius™

Providing physical and cognitive rehabilitation services to Philadelphia and its surrounding areas for over 50 years, Magee Rehabilitation Hospital wanted to create a welcoming environment that balanced durability with aesthetic charm. Altro Whiterock and Altro Aquarius stood tall above the competition, capable of enduring heavy foot and wheeled equipment traffic while making Magee’s patients feel right at home.

With Charles Matsinger Associates specifying, and the combined installation efforts of Seamless Flooring Systems and American Floors, Altro products revitalized the facility’s patient bathroom and shower areas. This installation is the first in a series of three updates to fulfill the hospital’s safety and hygienic requirements.

“The Altro Whiterock is superior in many ways in regards to other typical bathroom finishes,” said John Ardente, Director of Facilities Operations at Magee Rehabilitation Hospital.

“Typically, you see tile on the wall and possibly floors. In healthcare over time, these tiles become damaged from heavy equipment use. The grout becomes dirty and provides a harboring area for bacteria, which can cause infections in an HC environment. The Altro line of products works well in these settings when you are trying to reduce maintenance costs for repairs. It also reduces cleaning times, as there is no grout to be scrubbed or areas that can harbor bacteria.”

Altro Whiterock offers an extremely hygienic surface that can withstand the physicality associated with any healthcare environment; Altro Aquarius provides necessary slip resistance in bathroom and shower areas.

“The Altro line met all of these goals, and the feedback I have received from staff and patients has been positive,” Ardente said.
