The AHA’s American Society for Health Care Engineering presented its 2018 Excellence in Health Care Facility Management Award to NewYork-Presbyterian for its water safety management program, which helps protect vulnerable patients from waterborne hazards. The program incorporates real-time data management and analytics tools, which allow the hospital to respond to information about its water systems that serve more than 4,069 licensed beds in 10 campuses over approximately 15 million square feet. The program involves members of multiple teams, including environment of care compliance, infection prevention and control, nursing, and water safety. ASHE is an AHA professional membership group for those who design, build, maintain, and operate hospitals and other health care facilities. The Excellence in Health Care Facility Management Award recognizes individuals or facility management departments that implement new or innovative programs or processes to optimize the physical environment and improve patient care.
