Why Family Care Medical Group Added Air Purification to all Clinics
Discovering solutions to IAQ challenges within the world of healthcare.
Family Care Medical Group provides medical services and specialties to families across Central New York. Some services include diabetic education, ultrasound offices, and many other essential applications. Over the past 20 years, this company has expanded to 28 locations, and now has physicians that are associated with major hospitals around Central New York.
As Family Care Medical Group has many patients with pre-existing conditions, they have continued to adapt to meet patient needs, especially during the pandemic. To protect their doctors, nurses, and thousands of patients, Family Care Medical Group has invested in HealthWay® air purification solutions. By adding HealthWay® portable units to their lobbies, exam rooms, and cafeterias, FCMG reduces the spread of airborne diseases and other ultrafine contaminants. HealthWay® uses a patented Disinfecting Filtration System, or DFS, technology that can remove particles as small as 0.007µ from the air at a 99.99% efficiency.
Cease the spread and commence better, safer healthcare.
In June 2020, the world-renown Infection Control expert and advisor to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the World Health Organization, Dr. Syed A. Sattar performed an assessment of a HealthWay® 950P air purifier with a proxy COVID-19 sized particle. This was the first-ever enveloped and non-enveloped study of a proxy virus for SARS-CoV-2 in a certified lab. Dr. Sattar found that in just 10 minutes, there was a 99.987% removal of the proxy virus, in 1 hour, there was 100% removal, and then 24 hours later, remained 100% removal of the proxy virus.
When a patient tests positive for COVID-19 within a Family Care Medical Group facility, healthcare officials take every step directed by the CDC, and then close the room off with a HealthWay® unit running at full capacity for over an hour, or until the room is free from airborne particles. This ensures that anyone within the facility is safe from breathing in the contaminated COVID-19 particles and spreading them to others.
Most of the facilities (18) feature Compact and Ultrafine 468 units with a focus on the improvement of indoor air quality and the safety of medical staff and patients in all common areas. Over 124 units have been purchased by Family Care Medical Group for the safety of their staff and patients.
No air quality issues are alike. HealthWay® has an air purification solution for almost every size space and air quality issue. Without IAQ controls like these, there would be more particles such as bacteria, mold, smoke, and airborne viruses in the air – affecting patients and outcomes. Family Care Medical Group truly puts their patients and staff first by providing them with peace of mind with the most innovative air solutions on the market.
Reduce up to 99.97% of airborne pathogens affecting patients and medical staff.
