Henry Schein Medical, the U.S. Medical business of Henry Schein, Inc, announced the availability of Ansell Healthcare Product’s AlphaTec Model 214 gowns to practitioners in North America. 

The availability of these gowns enables Henry Schein to help deliver greater access to Ansell’s non-surgical isolation gowns, which feature durable DuPont Tyvek 1222A fabric, and advanced chemical protection, helping to enhance the safety of front-line healthcare workers amid COVID-19. 

By distributing AlphaTec Model 214 gowns, Henry Schein is fulfilling its commitment of procuring personal protective equipment (PPE) to help ensure its customers – physician offices, hospitals, and other healthcare institutions – have the supplies they need to focus on delivering patient care, as outlined in the company’s “Rebuilding Together” initiative. Similarly, the company is helping to fulfill the mission of Ansell’s recently launched #NetworkofHeroes program, which offers support to non-PPE manufacturers, as well as DuPont’s program, #TyvekTogether, which partners with companies, such as Ansell, to help increase the supply of Tyvek garments to the marketplace. 

“Henry Schein and Ansell share a commitment to help enhance the accessibility of reliable and durable gowns as well as the safety of front-line healthcare professionals,” said Brad Connett, President, U.S. Medical Group, Henry Schein, Inc. 

The long-sleeved, water-resistant non-surgical gowns feature rear-fastening closures that tie at the neck and waist; concealed, non-latex elasticated cuffs; and bound seams. Available in two sizes – M/L, XL/2XL – the gowns also feature advanced barrier protection with DuPont Tyvek® 1222A fabric, which is intended for protective apparel, such as coveralls, hoods, sleeves, and non-surgical isolation gowns. 

“We are thrilled to partner with Henry Schein, whose extensive physician customer base can help us ensure greater reach, and ultimately improved safety,” said Paul Bryce, Vice President & General Manager, Ansell Chemical Solutions SBU. “Together, we are committed to helping ensure the safety of our front-line heroes.”
