We’ve reached Friday, the end of the first full work week under the New York State on Pause executive order. While most MedTech members are engaged in essential manufacturing or providing essential healthcare services and therefore exempt from the workplace closure requirement, all businesses must implement social distancing practices.  We encourage all members to educate themselves on these state-imposed mandates. 

MedTech members have special access to expertise and assistance through our Membership Advantage program.  Our preferred professional partners are ready and able to help you through the current crisis and beyond.  These partners include:

  • Barclay Damon, whose attorneys team across offices and practices to provide customized, targeted solutions grounded in industry knowledge and a deep understanding of our clients' businesses. With nearly 300 attorneys, Barclay Damon is a leading law firm that operates from a strategic platform of offices located in the Northeastern United States and Toronto.
  • Gilroy Kernan & Gilroy, a full-service team of professionals who recognize that while risk changes over time, your exposure to it shouldn’t.  GKG offers insurance products and employee benefits packages designed to meet the special needs of New York’s bio/med industry.
  • Fisher Scientific, part of Thermo Fisher Scientific,  the world leader in serving science and the primary supplier of laboratory products.  MedTech members are able to take advantage of our partnership to receive leveraged buying power for laboratory and safety supplies, equipment, chemicals, reagents, and a host of services.

At MedTech, we’re working around the clock to connect our members to the resources, supplies and equipment they need to operate during this crisis. We’re working to create a platform to facilitate connections between those in need and those with available resources.  I invite – indeed, encourage – you to reach out to me with your ideas on how we can do this best.

At no time has MedTech’s mission to connect the bio/med industry been more important.  We exist to deliver value to our members and serve those who are on the front lines of healthcare advances.  We rely on our members to make that possible.  Please take a moment to join or renew your membership today.  Renewing members can lock in last year’s rate through 2021.  New members who join today will receive 3 free months on their membership year.  Don’t wait.  We need your support to continue the work we do.

As always, don’t hesitate to contact us with your specific questions and concerns. Regular updates can be found at our website, which is refreshed daily.
