The largest non-governmental hospital fleet in the world, Mercy Ships travels to developing nations to provide sorely needed, quality healthcare for underserved patients. Each year, the organization sends out hospital ships filled with volunteer medical professionals to provide life-changing procedures free of charge to people who often have little or no access to medical care.

“Omnicell’s continued support enables our volunteer hospital crew to provide high quality care to our patients by ensuring access to Omnicell’s latest medication management technology,” said Jonathan Dyson, Director of IT Strategy and Governance. “This partnership will forever impact the lives and communities of those we serve."

Omnicell has supported the mission of Mercy Ships through technology donations and technical support since 2017. With the recent donation of XTExtend, the Company will provide a comprehensive console swap for previously implemented XT automated dispensing systems to enhance security and improve the user experience.

“Omnicell and Mercy Ships were both founded on the idea of finding a better way,” said Kathleen Nemeth, senior vice president of Investor Relations and liaison to Mercy Ships for Omnicell. “We’re proud to support their mission to deliver care to those most in need, to help provide equitable access to innovative pharmacy care solutions for all patients worldwide, strengthening the global healthcare infrastructure.”

The Mercy Ships donation is part of Omnicell’s broader commitment to positively transforming healthcare and improving the communities where we operate and serve through programs like Omnicell Cares, our charitable efforts program, and the Company’s Environmental, Social, and Governance initiatives.
