Coinciding with World Health Day yesterday, Messer Americas took a moment to recognise and thank the nurses and healthcare providers who are helping to battle the coronavirus pandemic.

The US industrial gas company has said that it remains committed to doing its part to support the healthcare industry during the global health emergency.

“Messer teams continue working to ensure reliable delivery of our life-saving medical gases, including oxygen for hospitals and helium for MRIs, supporting critically ill patients and the healthcare systems,” the company said on a recent social post.

“Thank you to our nurses, drivers and dedicated employees on the front lines of delivering our essential products and services to hospitals and patients throughout the region.”

“Health and safety remain our top priorities – and we’re all in this together.”

As an essential supplier of oxygen to medical facilities across the nation, Messer is taking proactive steps to enable a safe and reliable supply of medical oxygen and related services to hospitals and medical care facilities during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Teams at Messer are proactively working with hospitals to understand their current and projected oxygen supply needs and are vigilantly monitoring their usage rates to prioritise shipments and identify capacity constraints at hospitals with rising demand for critical medical USP oxygen.
