Surgically Clean Air Takes Infection Control to New Heights in a New York City Hospital
Founded in 1863, Hospital for Special Surgery is the oldest orthopedic hospital in the United States. More than 32,000 surgical procedures are performed annually. HSS performs more hip surgeries and more knee replacements than any other hospital in the US. It is ranked the #1 hospital in the United States for Orthopedics. They operate in New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, and Florida.
HSS knows that an infection can be a devastating outcome for an orthopedic patient. That is why HSS takes infection control extremely seriously and has one of the lowest infection rates in the country. As Covid-19 hit New York, HSS knew that they needed to take this infection control to the next and ensure that they had the cleanest air possible.
In October 2020, the Hospital for Special Surgery NYC’s Engineer received an order of 70 Surgically Clean Air Jades.
After installing Surgically Clean Air purifiers throughout critical areas of the hospital, like waiting rooms, offices and more, the 32,000 annual patients and the staff now have confidence knowing the air outside the surgical rooms are cleaner and healthier with their Surgically Clean Air Purifiers in place.
