EVS And Infection Prevention Council

The EVS And Infection Prevention Council provides networking and learning opportunities for HIDA member companies that manufacture and distribute environmental services supplies and equipment into healthcare facilities across the healthcare continuum. Environmental services have always been an integral part of patient care, and the COVID-19 pandemic amplified their importance. This council facilitates open dialogue among distributors, manufacturers, providers, GPOs, and IDNs to advance the field. 

Environmental services contribute to improving patient care and saving lives every day. Having a safe, clean, clinical environment is important in each and every healthcare setting, ranging from homecare to hospitals, and everything in between.”
