Asphalt Services for Healthcare Facilities
Facilities and Hospitals Asphalt Services
It’s easy to underestimate the impact and importance of a well-paved asphalt when there are much more pressing priorities to running a facility. Hospitals, emergency centers, nursing homes, and medical centers provide excellent care for their patients but to do so they need quality facilities.
Southern Asphalt Engineering can care for your asphalt so you can continue to provide the best care possible for your patients. It may seem like a trivial aspect to maintaining patient care, but neglected asphalt can cause unforeseen accidents that you don’t want to be left vulnerable to.
Why Healthcare Facilities Need Asphalt Services
Facilities and Hospitals typically use asphalt not only in parking lots and walkways but also in areas where patients are transported such as loading and unloading zones and wheelchair ramps. It is important to keep these areas smooth so healthcare workers can continue to do their job without any disturbances caused by poor facility maintenance. Healthcare facilities receive constant foot and car traffic from emergency rooms to urgent care centers. It is important to have asphalt maintenance that is quick and will last the heavy influx of patients until it is time for the next repairs.
Healthcare facilities also need to make sure to be ADA compliant to cater to all patients while avoiding costly fines, lawsuits, and negative press. Southern Asphalt Engineering knows the importance of accommodating everyone so we are committed to making sure every project we are a part of has the proper accessibility parking, wheelchair/disabled ramps, accessibility striping, signage, and curb ramps.
Dangers of Poor Pavement Maintenance
Cracked sidewalks, potholes, and uneven pavement are all a recipe for disaster when treating patients who are in pain or living with disabilities. When patients need immediate care it’s important to be able to transport patients as quickly as possible without causing additional pain or injuries. Healthcare workers have to worry about their patients’ treatments not avoiding potholes in the road or cracks in ramps. Not just patients, but healthcare workers and visitors to your facilities can suffer accidents that can cost you in legal fees or workers’ compensation. It is important for your workers, patients, and reputation to not only keep your healthcare facility in good shape but also to maintain your asphalt to ensure quality care.

Parking Lot Sealcoating
Healthcare facilities are a busy hub for traffic handling emergencies and regular patient intake. One less thing to worry about is maintaining your parking lot through years of wear and tear. A way to ensure your asphalt is protected and maintains its appearance is with sealcoating. This acts as a barrier against oxidizing elements that can damage your asphalt. However, by applying high quality sealcoating your surface is more resistant to traffic without cracking and ensures it’s protected for longer.
Parking Lot Roadway Striping
It is important for healthcare facilities to think of every way their patient’s experience at their facilities can be impacted. From the moment they drive into the parking lot they should have a pleasant experience. Not only should the pavement be smooth but also the parking lot lines should be visible. Exposure to harsh weather and constant traffic wears away at the paint. Most parking lots need a face-lift every two years to keep them looking their professional best. Faded lines can only lead to improper parking which can minimize the space in handicapped spots and other inconveniences. This may seem like a small matter but it’s important to follow ADA guidelines by clearly marking accessibility parking spaces and applying defined roadway striping. Southern Asphalt Engineering can revive faded lines and signals with a fresh coat of high-quality paint.
