Beyond the OR: Whole Facility Flooring with Floorazzo™ | terrazzo tile floors

Beyond the OR: Whole Facility Flooring with Floorazzo™Posted: May 2013 Posted by: Mats Inc.


With a mission to bring comprehensive cancer treatments close to home for those patients in the suburbs of Chicago, Illinois, the doctors and partners of SKAN LLC developed a plan to create a regional radiation oncology center in Sandwich, Illinois.  The building of what would soon be the John Wentworth Cancer Center was set for the summer of 2012.

Ms. Lori Shook, Office Manager of the John Wentworth Cancer Center, and the SKAN LLC partners actively participated in the design process to ensure they would be able to offer an optimal healing environment.  They sought out appealing and durable materials that would be quick and easy to clean and maintain in order to create a pleasant and germ-free setting for patients with compromised immune systems.   Central to the facility was the state-of-the-art equipment around which they would design the world-class radiation facility.  A hygienic flooring solution that would be able to withstand the heavy, technologically advanced machinery became an important consideration for the project.


After they had been presented with a variety of resilient, easy-to-clean flooring options including Debolon roll flooring and Floorazzo™ Terrazzo Tiles, the partners chose Floorazzo™ in Cape Cod Blue for its long-lasting durability, its ability to withstand the heavy weight of the radiation vaults and CT Scanner and to match the tranquil blue theme.  Floorazzo™ was installed throughout the entire Center, including the reception area, entryway, hallway, exam rooms, restrooms, radiation rooms and the CT scanner room.

Since its opening in January of 2013, Ms. Shook has found the Floorazzo™ to have exceeded her expectations in function and style.  The resilient terrazzo flooring requires minimal maintenance and downtime for cleaning after treatments and in common areas.

“When a first-time visitor enters our doors, they comment on how much they like our floors, especially the eye-catching blue and silver specks,” stated Ms. Lori Shook.  “The floor gives the illusion that our facility is bigger and grander than it is.”
