STARC Systems, a manufacturer of temporary modular wall containment solutions used for occupied renovations and instant isolation, is accelerating its manufacturing process to accommodate healthcare facilities of any size looking to apply CARES Act funds to their order before the Act expires on Dec. 31.

Recently, large healthcare networks such as PruittHealth, and several others, have made system-wide investments to include the company’s modular walls in their emergency response plans. STARC walls will allow healthcare networks to rapidly deploy them, as needed, to increase negative pressure isolation capacity within a room, an entire wing or open spaces to help prevent the spread of coronavirus to staff, patients, residents and visitors. STARC Systems’ temporary walls meet the highest healthcare standards of infection control. They exceed the ICRA Class IV and ASTM E-84 requirements and surfaces of the walls are easily disinfected.
In September, the Treasury Department issued a clarification for hospital and healthcare recipients of $22 billion in pandemic response funds from the CARES Act. The clarification states reimbursements are available even if goods are received after year end. Meaning, healthcare facilities that request a shipment by Dec. 30, but experience delays in delivery due to supply chain disruptions, are still eligible for reimbursement for shipments received after Dec. 30.
