Surface Medical Inc. and Sealed Air Corporation announce that they have entered into a strategic partnership to exclusively distribute the CleanPatch® branded product line in the United States through Sealed Air’s Diversey Care division.
As part of the multi-year agreement, Diversey Care will lead the sales, marketing and distribution activities of CleanPatch products designed for the safe and effective repair of hospital bed mattresses, operating room tables and stretchers. The focus of this partnership will be in the U.S. healthcare market, including acute care hospitals, long-term care facilities and ambulatory surgery centers.
"CleanPatch can help healthcare facilities with patient safety, cost and compliance. Sealed Air Diversey Care sees this innovative solution as a great complement to our infection prevention offering which helps our customers create a safer and more satisfying environment of care,” says Carolyn Cooke, vice president of healthcare, North America at Diversey Care.
CleanPatch is a first-in-class Food and Drug Administration (FDA)-registered medical surface repair technology that restores damaged hospital mattresses to an intact and hygienic state. Studies have demonstrated that damaged surfaces in healthcare facilities are common and cannot be properly disinfected, leading to the risk of potential cross-contamination.
