HAMPTON, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--ivWatch announces that Gary Warren, President and CEO of ivWatch, LLC, has recently been added to the World Pediatric Project (WPP) Executive Board of Directors. Mr. Warren brings extensive executive experience in developing and managing high-growth technology and venture-backed private companies to the Executive Board.
Mr. Warren and the other members of the WPP Executive Board share a passion for bringing advanced technology to underserved areas. Access to the latest medical devices and technology, combined with the talent and commitment of the WPP volunteer doctors, surgeons, and nurses, allows WPP to help thousands of children each year. As a part of the newly structured executive board, Mr. Warren will help oversee operations and financials of WPP.
“It is an honor to be a part of this well-established organization,” says Gary Warren. “My goal is to expand recognition for WPP beyond its current base of supporters. The countries and families served by WPP need access to the type of healthcare and surgery we expect and see as ‘basic’ here in the United States. This access could not be more immediate in many areas WPP serves due to the recent destruction caused by hurricanes and flooding.”
ivWatch supported a surgical mission to St. Vincent and the Grenadines in 2016. The company was able to send a number of its medical devices to be used during and after surgery. The ivWatch Model 400 is a continuous monitoring system that allows clinicians to better manage the risk of IVs by providing early detection of infiltration and extravasation, when fluid leaks outside of the vein.
“We are thrilled to have Gary join our Executive Board of Directors,” says Susan Rickman, CEO of World Pediatric Project. “It’s an exciting time for our organization as we launch and begin to roll out our most recent strategic initiative, Transformation2023. Gary’s experience and insight will help us achieve our goal of healing more children, sooner.”
World Pediatric Project’s Transformation2023 includes:
- Accelerating WPP’s effective outreach twice as fast with 3,000 or more children helped 7 years sooner
- Cumulatively reaching 13,000 children benefiting from 36,000 procedures within 7 years
- Financial contributions of $45 million delivering $206 million in pediatric specialist care
