CASE STUDY: Children's Mercy Hospital
Children's Mercy Hospital
The dental clinic cabinetry at Children's Mercy Hospital, in Kansas City, was experiencing aggressive wear and tear due to high traffic in a wet environment. Peeling laminate, damaged bases and discoloration from heavy usage of the sanitation equipment precipitated a need for a renovation. According to the Children's Mercy staff, "rooms like this require constant maintenance due to high traffic and a wet environment."
Made exclusively with LG Hausys' HI-MACS, 100-percent solid surface Shield Casework provides a durable and hygienic material solution for healthcare applications. Shield Casework' nonporous, microbial-resistant and low-maintenance benefits were ideal for the high traffic area in Children's Mercy Hospital. With its new casework in both its dental clinic and cafeteria, Children's Mercy Hospital no longer has to worry about repair or safety concerns.
At NeoCon 2012, Shield Casework showcased its casework designs made with solid surface. "Everyone who saw the casework immediately understood the benefits," says Stephen Hopkins, director of innovations for Shield Casework.
Thanks to its thermo-formability, LG Hausys' HI-MACS solid surface is able to offer healthcare architects and designers unlimited design potential. It is ideal for everything from the most modern, architectural designs to classic styles. Its versatility is endless.
From the 40-foot tall abstract sculpture in front of the hospital to the microbial-resistant cabinet solution that is Shield Casework, HI-MACS surface can be used to bring any healthcare designer's inspiration to life while providing the utmost protection against infections and wear and tear.
