With the VA’s fiscal year start in October and budget allocation underway, being included in ECAT’s online catalog of the latest technology and medical equipment from the preferred purchasing sources of the Department of Defense (DoD) and the Veterans Affairs (VA) healthcare system will allow Veteran hospitals and clinics immediate access to Surfacide’s Helios System consisting of a trio of hospital-grade UV ‘Robots,” providing safer environments with lifesaving UV light technology.

To maximize performance and ensure a stress-free experience, Surfacide customers will also have access to SURFCare, Surfacide’s equipment protection plan.
