St. Clair Installs Groundbreaking Nanowave Air™

As part of St. Clair’s relentless commitment to keep patients, their loved ones, and hospital employees safe, advanced air filtration devices have been installed.

“In studies at multiple National Institute of Health (NIH) National and Regional Biocontainment labs, Nanowave Air was proven effective at inactivating viruses and bacteria in fast-moving air. This is another proactive step in our never-ending process of doing everything we can to keep everyone safe,” said Charles V. DiBello, Vice President of Facilities and Construction at St. Clair Hospital.

The first unit was placed in the Emergency Room waiting area, with additional units planned for immediate installation at the Village Square and Peters Township Outpatient Center waiting rooms.

“At present, we have ten devices ready to go. Ultimately, we intend to expand the installations and provide this technology in other patient care areas,” DiBello added.

“When the pandemic started, we believed we could translate what we do with only one goal in mind: to help people. Our teams really like to do the hard stuff—and after we performed the first UV-C inactivation of COVID-19 in May, we knew we could deliver this device. With our fast-moving electronics, constant innovation, and serial testing, we are now able to inactivate virus and bacteria in fast-moving air,” Mullen said.
