Project Description

Proactive Indoor Air Quality

Project Summary
The U. S. Department of Veterans Affairs serves eight million Veterans through 153 hospitals throughout the United States. The Veterans Health Administration (VHA) is responsible for providing quality, efficient and accessible health care to veterans in the largest health care system in the United States. In addition to its medical care mission, VHA is the nation’s largest provider of graduate medical education and a major contributor to medical and scientific research. VHA also provides emergency medical preparedness and disaster response.

Healthy Buildings’ Role
Healthy Buildings supports hospitals and Medical Office Buildings (MOBs) with proactive indoor air quality inspection programs designed to support facility compliance with Joint Commission Environment of Care requirements. Healthy Buildings has completed comprehensive inspections of over 100 hospital buildings in the past decade. As the demands on the Environment of Care in Medical Office Buildings increase, Healthy Buildings supports MOBs with proactive indoor air quality monitoring in these building types.

Through our GSA Federal Supply Service Contract, Healthy Buildings has served over 7.2 million square feet of Veterans Administration hospital space in the past three years.

Program Highlights
The Jerry L. Pettis Memorial VA Medical Center located in Loma Linda, CA comprises one 750,000 square foot hospital building and several smaller buildings on and off campus. In 1997, Healthy Buildings conducted a detailed duct inspection of the building as part of a major overhaul of the mechanical system. Healthy Buildings has since conducted routine annual proactive indoor air quality inspections of the hospital and many of the satellite buildings.

We are so fortunate to have such a great partnership with Healthy Buildings, who is responsive to our needs!

Just wanted to express my sincere thanks for your time and assistance in attending the meeting. We met with a certified Industrial Hygienist and the Director of Environmental, Health and Safety. At the meeting, your staff distributed copies of the actual sampling data findings and explained each test and the results. The director asked a few questions and at the end of the meeting he seemed satisfied with the results and expressed his gratitude and stated that he felt that HBI had done a thorough job.
