Leading Chinese Children’s Hospital Partners with HealthWay to Provide Healthier Indoor Air Quality

Hebei is one of the most air-polluted provinces in China. According to the Ministry of Environmental Protection (MEP) for the severe fog-haze month of January 2013, seven of the top ten most polluted cities in China are located in the Hebei Province. Experts say The Children’s Hospital of Hebei Province has been overwhelmed with a significant increase in patients suffering from respiratory illnesses.

Leadership at the hospital did exhaustive research looking into how to address indoor Air pollution inside the hospital. Over the past few months The Children’s Hospital of Hebei Province partnered with HealthWay, the global leading Air cleaner manufacturer to address the horrendous air quality situation.

Installation of medical grade air cleaning units designed by HealthWay have been proven to capture 99.99% of all particles as small as .007 micron in size which is overwhelmingly more efficient than that of popular HEPA air cleaners. Air cleaners have been installed in the respiratory department, outpatient area, nurse stations, doctors’ offices, wards, and the injection and transfusion rooms.

The outcome at The Children’s Hospital of Hebei Province has been significant: Patients have reported a tremendous improvement in symptoms and employees have witnessed a better sense of wellbeing and a reduced transmission of illnesses.

Vinny Lobdell President of Central New York based HealthWay stated, “When it matters most companies and institutions choose HealthWay. This is due to our relentless determination to provide a real solution to any partner’s problem. Whether it’s ultrafine particle filtration, heavy gas and odor control or general air cleaning, our products and our team of engineers can tackle any critical air environment.”

HealthWay’s air cleaning solutions have revolutionized the air cleaning industry again. DFS technology has been independently proven to provide better than HEPA efficiency with half the pressure drop of a similar sized HEPA. The end result is more effective long term cleaning with a lower energy and maintenance cost. Air quality problems come in all shapes and sizes and so do HealthWay’s customized air cleaning solutions.

HealthWay’s air cleaners can be found at some of the world’s most prestigious locations. Companies like Hyatt, Hilton, Marriott, BMW, Volkswagen and The Cleveland Clinic all rely on HealthWay to provide a healthier and cleaner indoor environment.
