Gift Funds Safety Cabinet Used to Protect Lab Workers Conducting COVID-19 Rapid Testing
Ball Ground, GA (December 3, 2020) — In a step to improve the lives and safety of individuals working on the frontlines of the COVID-19 pandemic, CAIRE Inc. has made a donation of $11,300 to the Northside Hospital Cherokee fund. The gift has enabled the Canton medical campus to purchase a biological safety cabinet to protect lab employees from the aerosol generated from the extraction phase of the COVID-19 rapid in-house testing they perform.
Working through the benefits management firm, Chelko Consulting Group, CAIRE made the gift after learning of this critical need for equipment at Northside Hospital Cherokee which is in close proximity to the global manufacturing headquarters.
“This gift offers the ultimate way to show our appreciation and support for our local healthcare workers by providing a way for them to stay safe as they seek to support those individuals who have been affected by COVID-19,” said Nick Estes, CAIRE CFO. “Throughout the pandemic we have learned that time is absolutely critical in caring for an infected person and we are very proud to be a part of this special opportunity.”
Around the globe, CAIRE’s portfolio of solutions – portable, stationary, liquid and commercial oxygen systems have served individuals fighting the virus in medical facilities, and after hospital discharge as they transition back to home care.
