Clearwater, FL, March 23, 2022 – Mercury Medical responds to the plea from the Ukrainian Medical Association of North America Foundation, UMANA, for donations to help the people of Ukraine.

Mercury Medical, a medical device company located in Clearwater, Florida heard there is a Chicago based branch of a non-profit organization, UMANA Foundation, in dire need of donations to help Ukraine during this war crisis.

From the UMANA website: “Ukraine is in the midst of a major humanitarian and medical crisis since the Russian invasion on February 24th, 2022. Numerous civilians including children have been killed and hundreds of thousands of Ukrainians have fled home seeking safety. The infrastructure to deliver food and medicine has been destroyed, and there is a serious shortage of medical supplies in many hospitals and health facilities, including access to trauma care.”

Mercury Medical’s leadership team and employees went to work. Together with the UMANA organizers, they donated thousands of dollars of medical necessities including hemostatic gauze, tourniquets and bandages in their effort to assist the people of Ukraine during this horrific war crisis.

Mercury Medical is a leading provider of cutting-edge medical device technology in the acute care and emergency markets both in the United States and globally.

John Gargaro MD, President and CEO states: “When we heard the atrocities being carried out against the Ukrainian people, we had to act. Our mission is dedicated to delivering clinically differentiated critical care technology that saves lives throughout the world… As such, Mercury Medical believes that this donation to the UMANA Foundation will serve to help save Ukrainian lives during this time of desperate need.”

In addition to the donation, Dr. Gargaro announced in early March to all employees that the company ceased to engage in all business activity with Russia.

From Maria Hrycelak, MD, UMANA Foundation President in response to Mercury’s medical supply donation, “Thank you for your generous contribution for the people of Ukraine in this crisis.”
