Dear PDM Members, Trading Partners & Friends,
Community has always been the central point of our business philosophy, and now more than ever, we want to remain an open channel of communication and resource to our business and healthcare communities during this unprecedented time of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The wellness of our industry, community, and friends is of upmost importance to PDM Healthcare. As a virtual/digital company, we remain a valuable ally to you. We will continue to be your source for real time information on product availability, pricing, industry changes, and the up to the minute health and legislative news.
The health and safety of our global community is our most important priority, and we encourage you to reach out to PDM Healthcare for your supply chain, purchasing management and plans, product sourcing, and industry guidelines and regulations. This is a rapidly evolving situation with every day bringing a new challenge that our industry, individual states, and country have never faced in our lifetime. Our operations continue to run strongly and at full capacity to support our business partners and the healthcare community.
As we monitor this rapidly evolving situation, please stay informed via guidance from local and federal authorities, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention https://www.cdc.gov and the World Health Organization https://www.who.int/emergencies/diseases/novel-coronavirus-2019, and for current case status https://gisanddata.maps.arcgis.com/apps/opsdashboard/index.html#/bda7594740fd40299423467b48e9ecf6.
PDM Healthcare will continue to support you. Since our founding in 1991, healthcare facilities and manufacturers have looked to PDM Healthcare as a forum for operational efficiency, savings on budget expenditures, brand building, and overall market share growth. We work hard, every day, to keep our operations running smoothly to ensure that we will be there for you every day for every need.
Like many in the healthcare industry, we are accustomed to personal meetings, trade shows, and visits. The world has turned upside down for all of us in the past week. Human connection is essential to our lives and businesses, and while for now we are postponing personal meetings, we are creating virtual resources and meetings to maintain and foster the connection between our member facilities, contracted vendors, and the community at large. Additional details about our virtual programs will be communicated in the weeks and months ahead.
In the meantime, we wish you to all remain resilient and strong, and most importantly in good health.
Ash Chawla, MS, RPh
Chairman & CEO
