"Community-based hospitals are the backbone of the U.S. healthcare infrastructure," states Cynthia Moore-Hardy, president and chief executive officer of Lake Hospital System. "The World Health Organization states that with over two billion passengers flying each year an outbreak in any part of the world is only a few hours from becoming an imminent threat somewhere else. That could be our community and we want to be prepared. At Lake Hospital System, infectious disease prevention is one of most important things we can do to safeguard the health of our patients, employees and community. The ability to sterilize all of the exposed surfaces in rooms where vulnerable patients receive care is a significant step forward in the ongoing battle against infections at their source."

The ER One Institute and Washington Hospital Center

"The ER One Institute trialed the VaproSure Room Sterilizer within days of STERIS expanding the registration for Vaprox and the VaproSure Room Sterilizer enabling the first use of the technology in healthcare settings," said Dr. Mark Smith, chairman of Emergency Medicine at Washington Hospital Center and professor of Emergency Medicine at Georgetown University School of Medicine. "We were so impressed with its ability to sterilize all of the exposed surfaces within a hospital room, that we designed our new Emergency Room expansion with integrated VaproSure Room Sterilizer capabilities. The expanded ER will be operational by year's end and will include the ability to sterilize individual ER rooms with the VaproSure Room Sterilizer.
