Naples Trauma Room

The crucial hour: Altro brings safety, peace of mind

Altro Suprema, Altro Whiterock

For those suffering critical injury, survival is often placed in the hands of a trauma center. With usually less than an hour to act, everything, including the floors and walls, needs to be clean, safe and hygienic - for both patients and providers.

Naples Community Hospital (NCH), located in beautiful Naples, Florida, sought to construct a freestanding ED trauma center, an emergency department built off-site from the main hospital.

In trauma centers, patients are rushed in and can sometimes stay for a few days. Providers don’t want to be thinking about how the interior finishes are holding up while trying to administer aid, especially when treading life and death’s narrow line.

To prepare for these needs, be it in the first hour or on the fourth day, NCH chose to install the durable and safe Altro Suprema vinyl sheet flooring and the hygienic Altro Whiterock wall panels. 

Altro Suprema not only contributes a 2500 psi static load limit and excellent slip resistance - the Altro Easyclean Maxis PUR Technology, Altro’s premier cleaning technology included in the flooring, brings industry leading performance in cleanability and stain resistance.

Altro Whiterock was designed for environments with rigorous hygiene standards. When combined with Altro flooring, such as what NCH did with Altro Suprema, it creates a hygienic, watertight, durable and easy-to-clean environment.

The design was done by Studio Plus Architecture of Fort Myers, Florida.
