Hansgrohe, Partnership - Continues Support of CHOA Atlanta
submitted by Alexandra Zwicky, Novita Communications
Whether it’s sponsoring local fundraising events or giving to local charities, Hansgrohe, the highly regarded kitchen and bath manufacturer with German roots and U.S. headquarters in Alpharetta, is proud to support its community. When the company heard that Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta (CHOA) was building a brand new campus in Forsyth County, the company was quick to lend a hand, grateful to have the world-class pediatric care available in its backyard. To date, Hansgrohe has made significant contributions, enhancing CHOA’s interior, as well as helping with its external operations by providing funds for a critical-care transport unit.
Hansgrohe outfitted the space in style, supplying faucets for the 47 exam rooms, 11 restrooms, staff breakroom and several other multi-use areas of the new facility. Axor Montreux faucets from Hansgrohe’s designer brand Axor and Hansgrohe’s Talis S faucets were chosen for their superior features. They can withstand many years of heavy use, offer 30% water savings and boast a classic look. A profile and images on the project can be found here http://www.hansgrohe-usa.com/11668.htm.Additionally, a fun and interactive online Water Savings Calculator tool can be found here http://www.hansgrohe-usa.com/1870.htm. It provides personal water use statistics and visually displays how much water and money can be saved by opting to use low-flow products, such as those specified in CHOA.
Additionally, it was determined that a transport ambulance was urgently needed at CHOA-Forsyth, as expanding and expediting access to the facility requires a unique transportation system which addresses the highly-specialized needs of pediatric patients. Russ Wheeler, President of Hansgrohe North America, presented a check to the hospital for the special ambulance. From one prestigious organization to another, Hansgrohe’s state-of-the-art fixtures and latest donation are being put to exceedingly good use in the nationally recognized hospital.
