The Customer

The Florida Department of Veterans’ Affairs (FDVA) is the premier point of entry for Florida veterans to access earned services, benefits and support. FDVA was founded on July 1, 1989, following the passing of a Constitutional Amendment in 1988 by Florida voters establishing a state agency responsible for advocating for Florida’s veterans, their families and survivors.

The Opportunity

FDVA were seeking a multi-layered approach to cleaning solutions they would consider for their mitigation efforts within their communities. The COVID-19 pandemic adversely affected many assisted living/skilled nursing facilities and the FDVA wanted to explore Healthe’s UVC products to see how they could be effectively integrated into their communities.

Our Solutions

  • Healthe AIR™ – a fixture that circulates room air through a HEPA-Carbon air filter and exposes it to UVA and UVC light
  • Healthe ENTRY™ – a free-standing walkthrough UVC 222nm cleaning archway. The ENTRY has been strategically installed at the community main entrance.



“We are pleased to be working with an innovative, Florida-based technology leader Healthe to add another layer to our mitigation strategy. Even while working expeditiously to offer COVID vaccines to our state’s veterans’ home residents, we cannot take our foot off the gas when thinking about plans and options moving forward.



By advocating for enhanced advanced solutions, we are continuing to ensure our communities are places for our residents and health care staff not only now, but well into the future.”
