Mosaic Life Care, located in St. Joseph, MO, has unveiled a state-of-the-art cancer center, offering comprehensive treatment services in a single, 25,000-square-foot facility. This eliminates the need for patients to travel between multiple buildings for care. The center features a spacious chemotherapy infusion room with panoramic floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the lake, a healing garden, and the walking trail system leading to the Ribbon Walk Pavilion. Designed to be warm and inviting, diverging from a traditional hospital setting, the center boasts a $22 million design inspired by Mayo Clinic facilities. It serves as a premier world-class destination for cancer care in the region, fostering a healing environment. Patients have convenient access to various services within a mere short walk, including Medical Oncology, Radiation Oncology, Labs, Social Services, spiritual care, massage care, acupuncture care, the pharmacy, the chemotherapy infusion room, and a special boutique and salon for patients experiencing hair loss – all in one place.
To bring their vision to life, Mosaic Life Center contracted Lehr Construction as the main contractor and Creal Clark & Seifert was chosen as the designer for the project. They selected Bomanite Licensee Musselman and Hall Contractors, LLC to install the decorative concrete in the Ribbon Walk Pavilion. This portion of the project consisted of approximately 700 SF of Bomanite Revealed system, part of the Bomanite Exposed Aggregate Systems, in two shades of a custom “lavender” integral color. Bomanite developed the design control samples for the project. Total project duration from design development through completion of construction took nearly one year. Color #1 is a white base Bomanite Revealed with a #1 purple glass. Color #2 is a white base Bomanite Revealed with a #1 crystal clear glass.
The lavender color ribbon is the universal symbol that represents “all types of cancer”. Musselman and Hall also installed the seat wall and pavers surrounding the Ribbon Walk Pavilion. The lavender Ribbon Walk is dedicated to patients who have courageously fought cancer and is a reminder that we can give hope to conquering this disease through support and advocacy. This lavender Ribbon Walk stands as a tribute to the valiant individuals who have battled cancer, embodying a symbol of hope and a commitment to defeating this illness through continued support and advocacy. Positioned on the walking trail adjacent to the Cancer Center, on the northwest corner of the Mosaic Life Care at St. Joseph, Medical Center campus, the Cancer Ribbon Walk is a place of remembrance and honor. Here, individual pavers are laid, each one representing a heartfelt tribute to someone who has been affected by cancer, either as a commemoration of their brave fight or in memory of those dearly missed.
Bomanite Revealed Raises Result Standard
Bomanite Revealed is an architectural exposed concrete with varying exposure depths using decorative aggregates that are bound in a unique binder and applied to primed concrete. The Bomanite Revealed System utilizes preblended binders, light fast pigments, specialized admixtures, topical treatments, and advanced application procedures to produce a finished product that showcases the seeded aggregate. Unlike most surface seeded installations, Bomanite Revealed provides 100% exposure of the decorative aggregate with no native sands detracting from the finished appearance.
The final product is unique alternate to other decorative concrete finishes while producing a monolithic concrete slab with a low life cycle cost due to the pre-aged nature of the surface. Bomanite Revealed is suited for exterior applications—anywhere that improved wear resistance for light to moderate-duty vehicular or foot traffic combined with an architectural finish is necessary. Due to the use of the Bomanite Revealed binder, these highly durable surfaces are available in a multitude of standard and custom options, including cost effective light-reflective formulations that will not require the use of white cement to reduce heat island effect. Bomanite Revealed is intended for both new construction and major renovation projects. Topically applied products such as Bomanite Con-Color and Bomanite Chemical Stain are compatible with Bomanite Revealed.
