Membership FAQ


How is the Healthcare Surfaces Institute different from every other professional organization?

The Institute was not founded to duplicate anything that is already being done. HSI is a platform for collaboration with a focus on surfaces and a goal to mitigate the spread of microbes that can cause deadly infections. While the focus is on surfaces, the collaboration needed to be effective must include all areas of expertise along with manufacturers to achieve this goal.

Why join HSI?

The issue of surface-based infections has been largely overlooked in the fight against HAIs, which means much of what we are doing has never been done before. Members have an opportunity to be a part of this.

We empower professionals that hold responsibility and accountability for infection prevention and safety, and we are committed to providing accurate information and resources to our members as they navigate challenges.

The Institute is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) charitable organization and our ability to meet our goals is dependent on the funds being raised through our memberships and partnerships.

Who can become a member of HSI?

Anyone looking for research, education, and resources to mitigate the spread of microbes via surfaces and a desire to help the Institute to achieve those goals.

How much does membership cost?

HSI Membership is $200/year. Your membership is automatically renewed on the date (mm/dd) you originally joined. More details can be found in the terms and conditions.

How can members get involved at the institute?

Within the first 30 days of becoming a member, you will be contacted by a member of the Healthcare Surfaces Institute board of directors to understand your interests and needs and ensure that your experience as a member of the Institute brings value.

For those who express an interest in getting involved, we will meet to discuss your areas of interest and work with you to become involved in an Initiative Group research project or other workgroups.
