Bothell, WA – November 26, 2019 - Townhouse Center for Rehabilitation and Nursing and Cold Spring Hills Center for Nursing and Rehabilitation, both part of the Philosophy Care Centers network, have committed to transitioning traditional ventilator equipment to VOCSN Multi-Function ventilators in order to provide best-in-class respiratory care for all ventilator users. VOCSN is the first and only device that combines five pieces of respiratory equipment - Ventilator, Oxygen Concentrator, Cough, Suction, Nebulizer - into a single, portable device to deliver integrated respiratory care.
VOCSN will enable the 40-bed Townhouse and 39-bed Cold Spring Hills to provide caregivers and patients portability, cost-savings, and the clinical benefits of integrated respiratory care while also bridging the technology divide between hospital and home. Townhouse completed the transition to VOCSN this month, and Cold Spring Hills will transition in January 2020. The facilities are the first of several planned upgrades for Philosophy Care Centers as part of a multimillion-dollar capital improvement to improve patient care and aesthetics.
TwinMed, one of the largest full-line medical supplies distributors in the U.S., selected VOCSN for Philosophy Care Centers and expects to install nearly 200 VOCSN Multi-Function Ventilators over the coming months as part of their continued commitment to provide the latest medical technology to align with the high-quality patient care provided at the rehabilitation centers.
“By selecting VOCSN, we are able to offer patients with Townhouse and Cold Springs Hills best-in-class respiratory care treatment. Installing VOCSN is just the first in capital upgrades to both facilities and represents our ongoing commitment to improvements in care and aesthetics across all Philosophy Care Centers,” says Ari Landau, Sales Ambassador for TwinMed.
“We’ve seen firsthand how improved ventilator technology can enhance the quality of life for patients and change the caregiver experience for providers and families,” says Daniel Schaffer, EVP of Philosophy Care Centers. “Healthcare providers must learn multiple devices and spend valuable time switching circuits to deliver multiple therapies. Patients' families are overwhelmed by traditional respiratory equipment that clutters the rooms and annoyed by the constant noise and alarms from multiple machines. VOCSN creates a more home-like atmosphere in each patient room and the reduced noise creates a calming atmosphere that we have never experienced for patients on a ventilator. Now patients are more mobile and we have more time to care for patients instead of managing multiple machines.”
“The ability to offer patients ventilation equipment that’s not only simple and intuitive for their physicians, respiratory therapists, and caregivers, but also customizable to the patient’s individual needs, is redefining respiratory care. The benefits of integrated respiratory care delivery are just beginning to be realized and the potential for patients at these facilities is very exciting,” says Dr. Irving Gomolin MD, Medical Director of Townhouse and Chief, Division of Geriatric Medicine at NYU Winthrop Hospital.
“Philosophy Care Centers is raising the standard of care and improving lives for ventilator users, their families and their caregivers,” said Chris Kiple, CEO, Ventec Life Systems. “We are excited to partner with TwinMed and Philosophy to give their patients and caregivers access to the benefits of VOCSN.”
