HOW WE ARE CONTINUING TO SERVE OUR CLIENTS
At TRIMEDX, the health and well-being of our associates, their families, and our clients & their patients are our top priority. As the provider of clinical engineering essential functions, we remain steadfast in delivering on our commitment to our health care providers by ensuring that medical equipment is properly maintained, cleaned and ready for use at a moment’s notice. Our goal is to minimize disruptions related to medical equipment readiness so that clinicians can maximize their time at the patient bedside.
With the heightened flu season and influx of novel coronavirus, our thoughts are with everyone around the world who are impacted, and especially with health care providers who are on the front lines of patient care. As we continue to navigate this unprecedented situation, we will evaluate new information and provide the support needed as we continue to work together.

What is TRIMEDX doing to continue supporting our clients?

All non-essential travel has been temporarily suspended.
