We proudly commemorate our 25th anniversary with a series of 25 events dedicated to giving back to the communities we serve. In a momentous milestone, event number TEN takes center stage, representing the receipt of our esteemed 10th Zenith Award.
The 10th Zenith Award, a prestigious accolade in the respiratory care profession, signifies a decade of unwavering commitment to excellence and innovation. Established in 1989, the Zenith Awards are recognized as a "people's choice" honor, with recipients chosen by respiratory therapists based on criteria such as equipment quality, accessibility, service record, and commitment to advancing respiratory care.
In addition to this illustrious recognition, we proudly announce further distinctions, including the coveted "Best Island Booth" title and a special sponsorship award for the AARC conference. These achievements underscore our dedication to setting industry standards and fostering innovation within the respiratory sector.
A poignant highlight of our recent activities is the sponsorship of the Sputum Bowl—an engaging event where teams from across the United States compete for the coveted prize and bragging rights. Our active involvement in this unique competition reflects our commitment to advancing respiratory care and supporting the broader respiratory community.
Our community came together for a successful event, contributing generously in cash and digital donations. As part of our commitment to respiratory health, we extended our philanthropic efforts to Respiratory Care Week (RC Week), making a substantial $10,000 contribution to the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America (AAFA). This generous donation is aimed at making a meaningful impact on the advancement of respiratory care initiatives. As part of our ongoing commitment to the respiratory care community, we extended three digital memberships to the American Association for Respiratory Care (AARC), emphasizing our dedication to supporting respiratory therapists and professionals.
"We express our sincere gratitude for the trust and support vested in us by the respiratory care community, and we eagerly anticipate many more years of sustained innovation, excellence, and community engagement," said Brant Nave, Vice President, Americas. "The receipt of our 10th Zenith Award is not just an acknowledgment of our achievements but, more significantly, a renewed pledge to the ongoing advancement of respiratory health."
Here's to the commencement of another decade marked by success, collaborative endeavors, and a positive impact on the landscape of respiratory care.
