Healthcare Engineering: Our Vision

Healthcare Facilities are frequently changing to meet industry trends, new technology, and changing demographics. M/E Engineering has built long-term relationships with many hospitals and healthcare systems as part of their team in keeping up with these changes and demanding infrastructure requirements providing; long-term planning, feasibility studies, energy studies, construction documents, construction administration, design-build, and fast track construction.

Our staff has been certified by the American Society of Heating Refrigerating and Air Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE), in Health Care Facility Design and are national members of The American Society for Health Care Engineering of the American Hospital Association (ASHE). We are dedicated to optimizing the physical environment including clean room design, hospital HVAC installation, and healthcare engineering. 

It is through this varied experience, we are able to provide designs that are uniquely matched to the users’ needs. Additionally we also possess the capability to further analyze project needs through Computational Fluid Dynamic (CFD) Modeling. This helps to insure our designs are efficient, cost effective and perform for the patient and healthcare provider.

Insight & Added Value

The use of CFD Modeling not only has allowed our staff to analyze specific issues, but it has also provided insight and added value to our design process anticipating and reacting to the complex environment, allowing us to engineer successful project results. We are actively involved in research to help develop design tools that will aid in not only the initial layout of the facility but will aid in the operation of these spaces both from an energy modeling standpoint and an infection control standpoint.

COVID-19 Response

In order to meet the Department of Health and Human Services, Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) requirement for Emergency Preparedness, including “emerging infectious diseases”, M/E Engineering believes it will be very important for Healthcare Facilities to document the tremendous efforts they have made with respect to the operation and maintenance of their mechanical systems in light of the current global pandemic. In addition, proactive planning for the future, including lessons learned, should be included to enhance each facility’s unique requirements for “Pandemic Emergency Preparedness Planning”.

Planning should include ongoing efforts in managing the spread of SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19 disease in the months ahead, as well as future epidemics that could have a real possibility of transmission through the air by various pathogens that may have higher aerosol potential than COVID-19. Pathogens with higher aerosol potential would create a greater impact on HVAC systems that protect patients, residents and healthcare providers.
