“We still get compliments two
years after we’ve opened…
of how much the design has
‘helped my child feel better.’”
Kermilia Moorer-Whitehead,
RN, Director of 10 Harbert
Children’s Hospital of Alabama completed a new 760,000-square-foot addition two years
ago. At the time, the hospital selected noraplan environcare™ and noraplan® sentica to address its
top priorities — ease of maintenance, acoustics and durability. Since the floor’s installation, the staff
has realized additional benefits.
“Nurses can work up to 16 hours, and everybody wants to do their job to the highest level and
be comfortable. With nora, we don’t have to worry about slipping, falling, aching feet or hurting
backs. I haven’t heard any of those complaints since we moved into our new space,” says
Kermilia Moorer-Whitehead, RN, director of 10 Harbert.
