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 air and surface sanitization options that could reduce the risk of pathogen spread and protect people who live at or are visiting one of their facilities.  It is well known that the Covid-19 pandemic has disproportionately affected assisted living/skilled nursing facilities.  FDVA wanted to explore our UVC sanitization products to see how they could protect the staff, residents and guests of 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 capable of eliminating 99.99% of airborne pathogens in seconds.
  • The Healthe ENTRY– a free-standing walkthrough arch that uses human-safe UVC-222 light to inactivate bacteria and viruses on skin, clothing and goods with a dosage requirement as low as 20 seconds. The ENTRY has been strategically installed in the buildings fitness center

“We’re pleased to be working with an innovative, Florida-based health technology leader in Healthe to strengthen protections for our veterans. Even while working expeditiously to offer COVID vaccines to our state’s veterans’ home residents, we cannot take our foot off the gas to combat this deadly disease.

 

By advocating for enhanced protection from current and future viruses and pathogens, we’re continuing to ensure our facilities are safe places for our residents and health care staff now and in the future.”
