Denver, Colo. (Nov. 8, 2016) – Aerocom Healthcare (, representing the global leader in hospital pneumatic tube systems in North America, will be demonstrating its Pass-Thru design capabilities in booth 1635 at the Healthcare Design Expo + Conference (HCD) next week in Houston, Texas.

Pass-Thru design allows pneumatic tube stations to receive carriers from above or below, and allows carriers to pass through a station to its destination. Conventional systems are designed with end-stations that send and receive carriers only from above. Pass-Thru design offers many advantages to hospital operators and their design and construction partners including simplified design and coordination, reduced installation costs, space savings, market-leading reliability and lower total cost of ownership.

“Pass-Thru technology is not only common outside of North America, it is a best practice,” says Harry Pliskin, president of Atreo Group, the umbrella company for Aerocom Healthcare. “We’re excited to bring this technology to the North American market, and to help project teams and owners meet their project and patient care goals.”

Booth visitors will also have an opportunity to learn about the automated waste, recycling and soiled linen collection and transport solution provided by TransVac Solutions (, the market leader of these systems in hospitals.  The TransVac system helps create a cleaner, safer and more efficient hospital environment for patients and staff by eliminating manual transport and storage of soiled materials throughout hospitals.
