SLOAN Provides Touch-Free Fixtures for Temporary Field Hospitals in Fight Against COVID-19

May 26, 2020

With a surplus of patients in healthcare facilities across the country due to COVID-19, commercial facilities are opening their doors to become temporary field hospitals. Sloan has supplied its touch-free commercial restroom products to two of these field hospital facilities: Chicago’s McCormick Place Convention Center and Yale University’s Payne Whitney Gym.

At McCormick Place Convention Center there are 500 beds in makeshift rooms, with plumbing requirements calling for over 200 Sloan sensor faucets in handwashing stations.

Yale’s Payne Whitney Gym needed to retrofit its existing manual faucets and flushometers to provide more sanitary environment for the influx of patients. The facility removed its existing faucets and replaced them with Sloan sensor-operated faucets, while also installing new Sloan sensor flushometers to provide a touch-free experience. 

“At Sloan, we understand that the touch-free products we manufacture across the entire commercial restroom play an essential role in the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Graham Allen, Sloan co-president and CEO. “We are proud to support those in our backyard of Chicago, Yale University, and anyone in need across the country, and we will continue to do everything in our power to supply sensor-operated products.”
