37 Years of Dedication and Leadership
August, 2017, Madisonville - MMLI has developed capabilities to support healthcare facilities to meet the mandate for Legionella testing within their water management plan. In June of 2017, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) announced a mandate requiring all certified Medicare and Medicaid facilities to begin testing their potable water and have a water management plan that meets the requirements of the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating & Air Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) industry standards. These standards are designed to reduce the risk of Legionella. Any facility that does not comply with the mandate will risk citation for non-compliance and would be in violation of the CMS Conditions of Participation.
Legionella pneumophila is the most common Legionella species in building water. It's name was the foundation of the Legionnaires' disease. This disease is a severe, often lethal, form of pneumonia. Each year it is estimated that 10,000 to 18,000 people are infected in the United States and is caused by the bacterium Legionella pneumophila.
Madisonville, January, 2016 - MMLI was proud to co-sponsor the Kentucky Association of Manufacturer's Day at the Capital. This time is set aside for key leaders of manufacturing to get "front and center" with policy makers within state government. Time was spent with not only legislators, but with the Governor as well. Discussions revolved around, logistics, tax reform, the budget, and of course workforce development. All were healthy discussions that Kentucky's manufacturing sector must continue to be involved in.
