it is a seamless, easy-to-clean surface material ideally suited for healthcare environments," said Dr. Mark Smith, chairman of Emergency Medicine at Washington Hospital Center. "There is solid evidence that contaminated surfaces contribute to the spread of infections. Eliminating grout lines and crevices through the use of Corian(R) remove a potential source of microbial contamination from the patient care unit."

DuPont(TM) Corian(R) donated a total of 193 sheets and 17 sinks made of the solid surface material to this phase of the ER One project. Corian(R) was utilized for selected areas of the emergency department, including patient room wall-cladding, nurses' stations surfacing, lobby chair rails, bathroom shower stalls and integrated sinks/vanities.

In conjunction with the Centers for Health Design, Washington Hospital Center will conduct evidence-based research over a two-year period, allowing staffers to test and adjust key elements for the full ER One, which is expected to open in six to 10 years.

Washington Hospital Center is a not-for-profit 926-bed acute care teaching and research hospital based in Northwest Washington. It is the largest private medical center in the nation's capital and among the 25 largest hospitals in the Mid-Atlantic region. The Hospital Center consistently ranks among the nation's top hospitals in the research and treatment of cardiovascular and kidney disease and provides cutting-edge therapies to treat cancer, stroke and acute neurological injury and disease. Washington Hospital Center also is home to MedSTAR Trauma and Transport and is the region's adult burn facility.

DuPont(TM) Corian(R) is a nonporous, high-performing, easy-to-maintain solid surface material that, when properly used or cleaned, does not support the growth of mold or mildew. Non-toxic and non-allergenic to humans, Corian(R) has received NSF/ANSI 51 Certification for food contact and Class 1 (A) fire rating. The American Institute of Ar
