Saratoga Hospital First in NY State to Earn COVID-19-Related ‘Clean Facility’ Certificate

SARATOGA SPRINGS — Saratoga Hospital is among the nation’s first to earn a Clean Facility certificate, underscoring the healthcare organization’s commitment to hospital-grade cleaning and disinfection practices, including COVID-19-related protocols.

The certificate, from the Association for the Health Care Environment, attests that Saratoga Hospital has completed the Pathways to Clean program. Launched in response to the new coronavirus, the program includes education and training on infection prevention; cleaning, disinfection and sanitation; emerging pathogens; and preparedness for biological events.

“Our patients and staff deserve to know that we’re doing everything possible to keep their hospital hygienically clean and safe—and this certificate helps deliver that assurance,” said Jeffrey Casale, director of facilities operations at
Saratoga Hospital. 

 “We know a lot more about the new coronavirus than we did six months ago, but we still have much to learn,” he said. “Saratoga Hospital will continue to tap expert resources, stay on top of the latest information, and adopt best practices to protect patients, staff and our community.”

To date, individuals representing 11 organizations have completed the AHE Pathways to Clean certificate program. Saratoga Hospital is the first in New York state.
