HIGH POINT, N.C., Dec. 2, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Graphik Dimensions (GD), an industry-leading custom fine art printing, framing and wall décor company based in North Carolina, has partnered with the Texas Organization of Rural and Community Hospitals (TORCH) to donate acrylic intubation boxes, which aid in the treatment of patients with infectious respiratory diseases including COVID-19. The boxes are critical barriers that help protect doctors and nurses from exposure to airborne droplets when they are intubating patients.
After looking for ways to be part of the fight against the novel coronavirus, the company was able to leverage their skills in customizing materials like acrylic, by conducting rapid prototyping in collaboration with regional Anesthesiologists, Pulmonologists & ER Doctors. As part of this effort, GD recently manufactured and donated 28 of the medical devices to 14 TORCH affiliated hospitals.
“We’re so proud of this collaboration with TORCH, and of our extended Team’s ability to rapidly innovate in ways that can potentially save lives,” said Geo Krieg, President of Graphik Dimensions, parent company to internationally recognized brands Graphik Printworks and pictureframes.com. “Our organization is always living the question of what it means to embody conscious business, and we’re honored to carry that spirit onward to help these rural and community hospitals that typically receive far fewer resources than hospitals in larger communities.” GD’s ongoing commitment to communities has included donations to ethical, sustainable organizations, arts education, breast cancer awareness, universities, and other non-profit groups. The company recently donated custom acrylic safety barriers to local homeless shelters and hospitals in a further effort to help prevent the spread of COVID-19.
“The intubation boxes will certainly be beneficial in adding to the safety of the Care Providers in our Emergency Room,” said Steve Deatrick, Hospital Administrator of Riceland Medical Center in Winnie, Texas. It’s a service that GD has been dedicated to providing for organizations and communities in need, since the beginning of the COVID-19 crisis, when the company expanded production of essential products such as acrylic safety barriers, social distancing floor decals, and custom health signage. In keeping with the company’s ethos, the intubation boxes can be outfitted with a variety of optional features and are available in both adult and children’s sizes. It is evidence of the company’s core strengths, which VP of Business Operations Rodney Suggs described as “nimbleness in customization, innovation and product development.”
