Worldwide Business with kathy ireland® Explores Advanced Medical Solutions with Mölnlycke®

Norcross, GA – April 26, 2018 — Worldwide Business with kathy ireland® is pleased to announce an exclusive interview with Mölnlycke’s Vice President of Marketing – US Surgical Division Al Concemi to discuss medical solutions and supplies for enhanced healthcare.

As one of the world’s leading medical solutions companies, Mölnlycke® designs and supplies medical solutions to enhance performance at every point of care - from the hospital to the home. Founded in 1849 in Sweden, their mission is to advance performance in healthcare around the world.

Today, customers use their solutions in almost 100 countries and they own operations in more than 40 of those. Hibiclens®, one of their main products, is an antiseptic skin cleanser. It works up to 24 hours[1], is gentle enough for the most sensitive skin and can be used daily[2]. Along with the HIBI® Universal Bathing System, Hibiclens can help provide the daily antiseptic bath that is a cornerstone of many infection prevention protocols[3]. The role of Hibiclens within the total Mölnlycke solution was the primary focus of the interview and was supported by insight from healthcare providers.

“Healthcare systems are under pressure to deliver better care to more people with a better value. Right now, healthcare is focused on outcomes. By focusing on prevention issues, you are able to help reduce some costs to the healthcare systems. Our solutions are designed to help reduce the risk of infection, hospital readmissions, and hospital acquired conditions. These are things that can lead to much higher costs, much higher patient suffering, and longer length of stay,” says Concemi. He adds, “ And Hibiclens isn’t just for the hospital – it also works in the home. That is why we continue to expand our retail availability to make it easier for consumers to buy Hibiclens. Because it bonds to your skin[4] and has 24-hour protection, you’re able to resist the multitude of germs you come across in your daily lives”.

“Mölnlycke is doing things right,’ says J.L. Haber, Vice President of Programming for Worldwide Business. “Healthcare should always come first.”

Alongside discussion on the Hibiclens brand and state of the industry , Concemi also shared Mölnlycke’s commitment to corporate social responsibility. Mölnlycke donates Biogel® surgical gloves to Operation Smile for cleft palate surgeries and makes significant contributions to the dEBra organization for EB (Epidermolysis Bullosa) awareness and wound care.
