FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Contact: Logan Tucker, 202-225-6155

 

RENO, Nev. – Congressman Mark Amodei (NV-02) today released the following statement in response to the Administration’s recent announcement to facilitate the production or acquisition of 100,000 ventilators over the next 100 days for the Strategic National Stockpile through federal contracts awarded by the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to private manufacturers and suppliers:

 

“I want to thank HHS for its swift action in awarding these contracts to several manufacturers across the country. My thank you extends two-fold, as one of the recipients of an HHS contract is Hamilton Medical Corp of Reno. Hamilton is a Swiss-based ventilator production company with existing offices in Reno, who has, as a result of the HHS contract, established its first U.S. factory here in Reno. Nobody should be saying mission accomplished while we’re still living in the midst of this challenge. However, this is an important piece in making sure our healthcare professionals have access to some of the most essential lifesaving tools needed in this fight. It is my understanding that production at the new Reno factory will begin before the end of the month.”

 

Background:

The Division of Strategic National Stockpile (DSNS), of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Office of the Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response (ASPR), awarded a contract to Hamilton Medical Corp. for various HamiltonVentilators. This is a Firm Fixed Price contract for a period of five months, with an effective date of March 31, 2020. The total contract amount is $551,606,879.59.
