OSF- Center for Health

OSF HealthCare, owned and operated by The Sisters of the Third Order of St. Francis in Peoria, Illinois, includes the OSF Healthcare System consisting of eight hospitals and medical centers, one long-term care facility, and two colleges of nursing.  The OSF Center for Health – Route 91 was the first outpatient care center of its kind in the Peoria area.

Built in 2001, the craftsman style ambulatory care facility building has an abundance of wood trim detail with views outside to the prairie style landscaping and garden.  The current finishes were well coordinated and detailed to create a warm, natural healing environment.  After serving the patients of OSF Healthcare for almost 12 years, the original carpeting was showing signs of wear and needed to be replaced

“The new Invision carpet installation is a very complimentary addition to the warm, healing healthcare environment.  Trust and respect for the J+J Flooring Group products have kept OSF Healthcare a longstanding customer for 18 years.”

OSF TNThe Challenge

The design group’s challenge was to maintain the original design intent of the building. This required the selected carpet tying in with the existing colors/patterns of wall coverings, fabrics, etc. – without it looking like it was not part of the original project.

The Solution

A combination of Romanesque, Maché, and Palladian modular carpet offered a fresh solution that worked well with the existing broadloom carpeting.  TheRomanesque pattern beautifully tied in with the natural theme of the building while the color Embellish accented the warm feeling of the environment.  Machéand Palladian were good coordinates to break up some of the open spaces where definition was needed.  Overall, everyone was very pleased with the end results of the carpet replacement.  The installation went very smoothly with little disruption to business.
