EIR Healthcare, the award winning modular innovation firm bringing efficient industrial practices to healthcare, laboratory, and life sciences, has unveiled its patent pending modular hospital product, MedModular. It’s the world’s first application of prefabrication and modular technology of hospital rooms to ensure faster delivery and build times, and minimized budgets.
“I started this company based on my father’s vision for a more efficiently operated hospital,” said Grant Geiger, Founder & CEO, EIR Healthcare. “With the completion of our first prototype, we’ve proven that a modular and smart hospital room is possible – and given its benefits to both the hospital management and patients it should be the only option worth considering when building new hospital construction from this point forward.”
MedModular rooms are delivered 90% complete, wired with smart technology, for easy “Lego-esque” integration into hospital infrastructure. This ensures attention and resources can be directed to where they are most impactful, such as staffing budgets, resources for advanced research and new equipment. Through the MedModular method, healthcare organizations will experience a competitive price per square foot compared to traditional construction with up to 40% faster completion time.
MedModular Value Proposition:
- Fall prevention: automatic sliding doors, frosted privacy glass for increased visibility, open shower plan, grab bars for safe travel around the room
- Hospital-associated infection prevention: sliding doors to minimize touchpoints, solid surface materials to prevent bacterial growth, continuous solid surface floor with floor-to-wall radius transition to minimize crevices, smart window eliminating need for shades
- Improved patient experience: daybed for patient and visitor comfort, smart window with controls from bed, Sky Factory Luminous SkyCeiling , integrated Crestron control system
The product is being manufactured by Admares, which brings its highly specialized, proprietary modular technology to build the custom-designed “smart patient room” with EIR Healthcare. Removable, prefabricated off-site, and designed to make maximum use of green technologies, the company’s developments have the minimum possible level of emissions, environmental footprint, and impact from construction.
