Answering the Call for Help from Healthcare Professionals

Our lives have changed dramatically over the past several months. I don’t think any of us fully realized the impact this pandemic would have on us both personally and professionally. Our hearts go out to the nurses, doctors, technologists and healthcare team members who have dedicated themselves to helping patients during these extraordinary times.

Earlier this year, when we began to grapple with just how serious the COVID-19 outbreak was going to be, hospitals faced a massive shortage of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE). Healthcare systems struggled to procure cloth masks, face shields and other equipment to ensure their team members were adequately protected.

As a healthcare organization, we believe it’s our duty to help hospitals strengthen community healthcare, and that is a sentiment everyone within our organization takes seriously. When COVID-19 hit, employees across our family of companies asked how they could assist our customers in ways that go well beyond business.

In the following video, you’ll learn about the many ways in which our team members took it upon themselves to aid healthcare professionals fighting the pandemic. Whether it was taking part in company-wide efforts to assemble face shields for healthcare workers, stitching cloth masks for rural hospitals in desperate need of protection or even just reaching out to our affected customers to ask what more we could do to assist, our team members stepped up.


Thank you to everyone at our organization who has given their time and effort in support of healthcare workers during this pandemic and thank you to the healthcare heroes who continue to make sacrifices day in and day out as they deal with COVID.

We will always be here for you. If there’s anything we can do to help, please let us know. We’re in this together, and I know I have an entire team who will back that up and do what’s right to help support you and to help you protect patients.
