Healthcare facilities require a variety of piping products to support their day-to-day operations. The list includes potable water systems that meet the environment’s strict sanitary requirements, natural gas pipelines that fuel surgical equipment as well as procedures and snow-melting systems that protect outside traffic from potentially dangerous slips and falls.

Rather than turning to multiple vendors for these needs, Viega can support them all. Our comprehensive range of products coordinate with one another to provide complete solutions for our customers, even as the demands on technology become more complex.

Here’s one example of our product versatility in the healthcare space:

One Manufacturer for Different Piping Applications

The University Hospital (UH) Ahuja Medical Center in Beachwood, Ohio, is a 370,000-square-foot facility that sits on 53 acres. With the goal of delivering high-quality patient and family-centered care, it was clear that the new construction had to leverage state-of-the-art piping solutions.

Based on past experiences using Viega systems, MCAA mechanical contractors Smith & Oby and the Coleman Spohn Corporation knew Viega was the best fit for the job.

For the drinking water installation, Viega ProPress® in sizes ½" to 1" were used throughout the medical center. Meanwhile, a Viega ProRadiant® snow-melting system was used to ensure safety in hospital parking lots, building entrances, on sidewalks and on helicopter pads.

The reliability of these initial installations helped ease the concern of future installations. Adding on to the Viega ProPress system is easier than it would be with a solder-type system, while the need for a hot work permit is also avoided.
