COVID-19 Facility Management Bulletin: Portable Wash Stations

Sandy Chapin

Marketing & Communications Director

26 March 2020


UMC fabricates, delivers and installs custom portable wash stations available to support any location.

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic and the need for more capacity of functional handwashing stations, UMC has designed and is currently fabricating portable handwash stations that maintain safe, 6-foot social distancing for four people at a time with a capacity of up to 240 washes per hour. These stations require a 1-1/2” connection to a waste line and a 3/4” connection for cold water and come complete with an electric hot water heater, collection sump, and sump pump. They require a dedicated 20 amp circuit.

"That sink is fantastic! I hope you don’t mind if I share it with our COO. While so much rightful attention is going toward our courageous front line clinicians and staff working to keep us all safe, I want to remind her about what our larger facilities community is doing in the background.”

--Kristie Logan, Seattle Cancer Care Alliance
