    UV-C air disinfection for healthcare

    Air disinfection adds a layer of protection for your patients, employees and visitors 

    Keeping healthcare environments clean is critical. In busy 24/7 environments, it’s hard to keep up with the constant need for disinfection and infection control. Clean air enabled by constant air changes is vital for health and well-being, and to mitigate the spread of viruses and bacteria, especially in healthcare settings. Many healthcare facilities only have basic ventilation, which is not sufficient to change the air frequently enough. Opening windows can let fresh in, but it can also allow noise, pollutants, and drafts in, all of which affect comfort and well-being.


    The most effective way to deliver an additional layer of protection is to combine basic ventilation with UV-C air disinfection, which has been proven to reduce the spread of bacteria and viruses, by inactivating 99.99%* of harmful pathogens present in the air. This is why UV-C technology is already used by healthcare facilities around the world to help with infection control. 


    Philips UV-C disinfection lighting is a proven, effective and energy-efficient solution to achieve clean air. It can be used while people are present and is easy to operate and maintain. It runs quietly and discreetly in the background, improving the indoor air-quality for your patients, employees, and visitors.
