SCWorx Subsidiary Direct Worx Sources One Million Surgical Masks for Existing Large Hospital Customer to Help Maintain Safety for Healthcare Providers Treating Patients Affected By COVID-19 Pandemic
NEW YORK, March 27, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- With the COVID-19 pandemic escalating in the U.S., SCWorx Corp. (Nasdaq: WORX) announced today an agreement between its subsidiary Direct Worx and an existing large hospital customer to supply one million surgical masks, which were fulfilled and shipped yesterday. The initial agreement was for $390,000, with additional potential agreements to help hospitals source urgently needed Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) are anticipated.
“Hospitals are quickly running out of surgical masks and other PPE as the number of COVID-19-infected patients accelerates beyond hospitals’ ability to procure needed PPE to protect patients, doctors, nurses and other hospital personnel treating infected patients,” said Marc Schessel, CEO of SCWorx. “Our subsidiary, Direct Worx utilizes our extensive hospital networked access to supply chain resources to enable us to help hospitals successfully source the PPE they urgently need, positioning us for accelerated growth as a leader in this space. We are working diligently with our hospital customers to rapidly secure necessary PPE, especially during this demanding time, and we expect to announce similar agreements as the pandemic spreads.”
