Al-Adwani hospital purchased twenty-five medical grade air cleaners with patented DFS technology, which has been proven to be 40x more efficient than a similar size HEPA air cleaner. Clinical testing of HealthWay air cleaners in hospital settings have shown greater than 90% reduction in airborne ultrafine particles. It is these ultrafine particles that are most dangerous to humans as they penetrate deep into the human bloodstream and wreak havoc on even the healthiest person’s immune system. DFS technology not only provides a higher efficiency for ultrafine particle capture than its competitors but also a lower pressure drop which results in a higher airflow per decibel level of noise and a much higher cleaning effectiveness rate.

Vinny Lobdell, President of Pulaski based HealthWay stated, “We are delighted that our products and solutions were chosen by Al-Adwani General Hospital to help provide the next level of safety and comfort for patients and employees alike. “

Al-Adwani is one of many hospitals throughout the Middle East to partner with HealthWay the fight against MERS. Although scientists are not certain how the disease spreads, most known cases have come from close contact with others who have the virus in a hospital setting.

HealthWay will be participating and exhibiting their full line of air cleaning solutions at the Middle East’s largest infrastructure and hospital build show from June 7-10th in Dubai. When it matters most industry leaders like Hyatt, Hilton, Marriott, BMW and the Cleveland Clinic rely on HealthWay’s patented DFS technology to provide the safest air quality.
