Aerogen Win 2020 Zenith Award for Respiratory Care Excellence

22nd September 2020

In a year which will be heralded as one of the toughest that healthcare has had to endure, with the COVID-19 pandemic pulling on all hospital and clinician resources, the role of companies supporting these healthcare workers and their patients has become critical. Aerogen, the global leader in aerosol drug delivery, has been selected by over 47,000 respiratory clinicians to receive the prestigious 2020 Zenith Award from the American Association of Respiratory Care. This year marks the seventh time that Aerogen has been selected as a recipient of the Zenith Award.

The award, which is in its 32nd year, represents a means for respiratory care professionals to recognize excellence from companies and service suppliers to the hospital. The award spans a wide range of criteria including equipment and supplies, the accessibility and helpfulness of their sales personnel, responsiveness, service record, truth in advertising, and their support of the respiratory care profession. “Aerogen exemplifies the qualities represented in the criteria and, because of this; we salute [Aerogen] and [its] employees”, said Thomas J. Kallstrom, MBA, RRT, FAARC, Executive Director/CEO.

Adding to this sentiment John Power, CEO of Aerogen said, “We are honored to be recognized by the respiratory therapy community in this way. As a seventh time recipient, we are proud to retain the confidence and trust of respiratory care professionals especially during this difficult year. Our purpose has always been to make a meaningful difference to those most critically in need of care and we do everything we can to ensure this is achieved daily.”

Aerogen will receive this award at AARC’s 66th International Respiratory Congress this November during a virtual ceremony.
