AARC honors Dräger with its prestigious Zenith Award

Nov. 12, 2019

The American Association for Respiratory Care (AARC) honored Dräger for the 10th time with its annual Zenith Award during the Association’s 65th International Respiratory Conference in New Orleans. Referred to as the “people’s choice award” of the respiratory profession, the Zenith Award is a unique opportunity for respiratory therapists to recognize companies for their quality solutions, customer service and support.

AARC members, which include 47,000 respiratory professionals across the U.S., were asked to vote on 300 manufacturers, service organizations and supply companies based on their quality of equipment, supplies or services; accessibility and helpfulness of sales personnel; responsiveness; service record; truth in advertising; and support of the respiratory care profession. Based on the voting, Dräger was selected as one of just six companies to receive the 2019 Zenith Award. This is the 10th time AARC members have bestowed the award on Dräger in the past 11 years.

“The past decade has been one of transformation in the healthcare field, and respiratory therapists like any other clinicians have been impacted by the multitude of changes,” said Lothar Thielen, Regional CEO North America and Managing Director USA, Dräger. “We have been there every step of the way, offering solutions and support to help improve the quality of respiratory care delivery. We are extremely proud and grateful for the AARC’s repeated recognition of our efforts, and pledge to sustain our support of the RT profession into the coming decade and beyond.”
