LifeAire Systems, LLC, has been named a finalist in the Emerging Business of the Year category in the Lehigh Valley Business, Business of the Year awards program. The Business of the Year awards program celebrates the region’s most dynamic businesses and business leaders who share a commitment to professional excellence, business growth and the community. Finalists and winners were chosen by an independent panel of judges.
LifeAire Systems has developed and patented a proprietary in-duct air purification system for environments in which air quality is critical. Recent research indicates that 1.7 million patients in the U.S. acquire a Hospital Acquired Infection each year with an associated cost burden of $30-45B annually. These infections create avoidable complications, and contribute to increased readmission rates, morbidity, mortality, and significant additional costs borne by the hospital. LifeAire’s technology has been installed in and is protecting the highly sensitive clinical setting of In Vitro Fertilization, and has resulted in a significant improvement in clinical pregnancy rates in multiple installations throughout the U.S. There is also considerable international interest in the system. The company is planning to expand into infection control for critical hospital applications such as operating rooms, intensive care units, burn centers, and long-term care facilities.
The Business of the Year award finalists will be recognized and the winner in each category will be announced during a formal awards dinner on December 9, 2014 at ArtsQuest in Bethlehem, PA.
