Acelity’s corporate social responsibility (CSR) commitment reflects our ongoing dedication to our vision to restore people’s lives. Our vision not only promotes a culture based on patient focus, but a culture of giving back and supporting the local communities in which employees live and work. That is why our more than 5,800 global employees receive 16 hours of paid time to volunteer in service of helping others.
Community Outreach & Support
In our hometown of San Antonio where Acelity is headquartered, we support organizations like Communities In Schools and The Children’s Hospital of San Antonio. Nationally, we are focused on making a greater impact in the lives of families facing serious health issues, the military and their families, and those impacted by natural disaster and crisis. We also provide our V.A.C.® Therapy free of charge to more than 8,000 uninsured, low income patients each year as part of the Acelity CHARITY CARE LOANER™ Program.
Our CSR Pillars
Families Facing Serious Health Issues
We support various diabetes organizations and nonprofits who provide free accommodations in service of patients and families navigating serious health challenges.
Military and Their Families
Through our partnership with MVPvets, we help make the transition from military to civilian life a little easier for service members who are looking for meaningful employment after courageously serving our country.
Disaster and Crisis Support
Over the last year, because of our strong relationships across the continuum of care and our relationships with local, on-the-ground organizations, Acelity quickly responded with product donations and customer support to help restore the lives of people impacted by global tragic disasters. Each year we donate millions of dollars and products to help people who faced disasters and crises in areas like Boston, San Bernardino, Japan, Paris, Ecuador, Brussels and Orlando.
Through our active role in Washington with the medical device trade association, AdvaMed, we have regularly advocated on important issues. We recently supported the 21st Century Cures Act, which creates an expedited pathway for breakthrough technology, bringing new hope to patients in critical need.
We will continue to act in a manner that minimizes the environmental impact of our business operations, actively encourages support of charitable and educational activities in the community, and maintains the highest standards of integrity, leadership and behavior in all that we do. In doing this, we demonstrate our company’s shared values of being United, Authentic, Purposeful and Courageous.
