Reading Time: 2 minutes

Healthcare facilities, such as hospitals and GP practices, have an important duty to maintain excellent air quality. Their main goal is to help people get back to full health, a goal that is hindered if air pollution worsens existing health problems. Therefore, it’s increasingly crucial for these institutions to establish and use strong air monitoring systems.

The ultimate goal? To systematically transform into a ‘clean air hospital,’ ensuring an air-safe environment for all. This is where Persium can play a pivotal role. With its cutting-edge air quality monitoring system, Persium provides an innovative solution to help healthcare institutions achieve this vision.
