“As the global pandemic evolves, there is unprecedented demand for medical equipment, including ventilators. We continue to explore all options to support this increased need. Direct actions we are taking include:

  • Adding manufacturing lines to ventilator production and increasing the number of shifts to produce around the clock.
  • Hiring additional manufacturing employees and shifting current employees to support increased demand immediately.
  • Managing our supply chain by working with suppliers to mitigate shortages and minimize impact on our customers globally.
  • Partnering with global regulators and using our clinical and technical expertise to urgently address questions from customers on how to meet patient needs.
  • Monitoring the health of our field service engineers and providing personal protective equipment for them when servicing devices – as well as increasing remote diagnostic and repair capabilities.

“As we continue to support our customers and partners, the health and safety of our employees remains our top priority. I am deeply proud of the work the GE Healthcare team is doing to tackle this global challenge.”
