Springhill Medical Center – Mobile, Alabama

NATURAL CREATIONS® ENHANCES SPA-LIKE ATMOSPHERE IN HOSPITAL SETTING

At the core of its mission, Springhill Medical Center (SMC) values providing high quality health care in a comfortable setting. The emphasis on creating a soothing, spa-like atmosphere was central to the renovation of SMC’s Gastroenterology Department.

Designers selected NATURAL CREATIONS® Luxury Vinyl Tile because it met the hospital’s aesthetic and performance requirements in a cost-effective floor covering. To create a stylish yet comfortably familiar look, designers blended the beauty of natural hardwood in the ArborArt® line with the abstract, organic patterns in the Mystix® collection. The natural textures are perfectly balanced in a neutral palette, creating a soothing visual with a modern, slightly energetic vibe.

The extensive range of coordinated colors, patterns, and textures across all NATURAL CREATIONS lines provided designers greater flexibility in coordinating flooring designs throughout the entire project.

Project Highlights

  • Visual:  The rustic visuals of driftwood and silk scarf mixed with the linear look of aria to create a modern look and feel.
  • Life-Cycle Costing:  NATURAL CREATIONS is a high-performance, low-maintenance floor with exceptional durability and longevity with endless design possibilities.
  • Maintenance:  Armstrong’s UV-cured coating can eliminate the need for polishes and spray buffing, which saves time, costs, energy and resources.
  • Environmental:  NATURAL CREATIONS has low VOC emissions – California Section 01350 compliant, third-party FloorScore™ certification (meeting stringent indoor air quality standards) and LEED® eligibility.
  • Armstrong Floor Representative:  Stephanie Becnel
