Air Purification System at CHC
Enhancing the Patient Experience
A new air purification system has been installed in all Compassion Health Care, Inc. medical centers, taking indoor air quality to the next level to combat airborne viruses.
Both our Caswell Family Medical Center site in Yanceyville, NC, and our James Austin Health Center site in Eden, NC have been upgraded to reduce airborne transmission of COVID-19 and other viruses, as well as pollutants, dust, allergens, and mold.
“We take the health and safety of our staff, patients, and community very seriously. This (COVID) virus has devastated all of us, and while we cannot ensure that the recommended guidance to combat this virus is taken outside of our facilities, we do have the capacity to go above and beyond to make certain our facilities are as safe as possible indoors for everyone, which includes the quality of the air we breathe. Not only are we helping to reduce airborne particulates, but we’re doing our part to save on energy consumption and lower our carbon footprint at the same time.” – William Crumpton, Chief Executive Officer
Prior to the pandemic, both CHC sites made sure that policies were in place to prioritize the health and safety of everyone who entered the medical centers. The installation of the iWave self-cleaning Needle Point Bipolar Ionization or NPBI® technology will safely deliver indoor air that is clean without producing ozone or other harmful byproducts. With the NPBI® technology from Global Plasma Solutions (GPS), all Compassion Health Care, Inc. facilities’ pathogen rate of reduction for Human Coronavirus, SARS-CoV-2, Norovirus, MRSA, and many others will be 90% or more based on independent laboratory testing results.
