ChallengeRecently, NSUH relocated their employee entrance and wanted to incorporate a way to show their gratitude to their staff. The goal was to create a welcoming atmosphere that would promote positivity and a sense of unity in the hopes of emphasizing their sincere appreciation for their employees’ hard work and contributions. The hospital needed doors for their team entrance that were customizable and capable of withstanding high traffic abuse from the hundreds of people entering the building daily.
By teaming up with Northwell Health’s design team and project manager, Joe Unino, Construction Specialties (CS) was able to capture the hospital’s vision and turn it into a reality. Acrovyn Doors by Design’s endless customizable elements and durable, long-lasting capabilities transformed this entranceway into an inviting and uplifting space for staff to enjoy as they arrive at work. Northwell Health’s logo and signage design was imbedded behind durable PVC-free Acrovyn®, providing an engaging visual statement that unifies this highly trafficked area. NSUH employees were ecstatic about the doors to their new entrance. The stunning results prompted Northwell Health to incorporate more specialty doors into other areas of their hospitals and are currently in the process of designing their restroom doors.
