Zero Patient Infections Reported as D.I.S.C. Spine and Sports Center Sets New Standard for Specialty Hospitals
Date:3/25/2008

MARINA DEL REY, Calif., March 25 /PRNewswire/ -- D.I.S.C. Spine and Sports Center, proudly announces its medical center is "infection free" after an initial 18 months of operation where over 1,200 procedures have been performed, according to Dr. Robert S. Bray Jr., founding director and CEO. The outpatient specialty hospital is a fully-integrated medical group providing next generation diagnostics, conservative care, sports medicine and rehabilitation along with state-of-the-art digital ORs that offer minimally invasive spine procedures and advanced arthroscopic surgeries.

With the explicit goal of minimizing the risk of infection in the 7,200-square foot surgery center, Dr. Bray made a strategic decision to install a $750,000 environmental air conditioning system throughout the center. Special attention was given to the three ultra clean operating rooms installing individual true 99.71% efficient HEPA filters to further eliminate any comingling of bacteria. With 30 air exchanges/per hour this filter exceeds the industry standard.

As an added level of protection, D.I.S.C. recently installed UVC Emitters (ultraviolet) to all critical area air moving units to destroy incoming airborne germs, bacteria and microorganisms including the highly-lethal anthrax. This level of protection is unprecedented in a medical facility and is the same type of system used by the CDC.

"This is a highly-significant accomplishment and we are extremely proud of our achievement," Dr. Bray said. "Our goal has been to redefine patient care and we have succeeded. By design, we implemented extraordinary measures to ensure the safety of our patients. In over 18 months of operation, we have clearly demonstrated that the procedures, protocols and technologies we have employed can make a dramatic impact in saving lives. We have proven the ability to reduce the risk of infection, which is reaching epidemic proportions today in the hospital environment."
