Working together to help our communities get better faster

The COVID-19 crisis is placing unprecedented demands on healthcare organizations, driving a critical need to expand capacity for testing and patient care to address the global pandemic in local communities. 

Supporting local response to the healthcare crisis

We know healthcare organizations everywhere are racing to bring testing centers online, build field hospitals, convert available space and more. In this demanding time, expertise, responsiveness and capability are more important than ever.

Eaton is committed to meeting our healthcare customers’ critical needs during this crisis. We remain dedicated to ensuring always-on power for essential electrical systems and data services and supporting healthcare capacity needs with on-time project construction. In fact, we recently partnered with electrical contractors and distributors to build two new field hospitals in Wuhan, China.

At a time when what matters most is the ability of our healthcare system to respond to the crisis at hand, we can help. To that end, we are committed to partnering with the healthcare industry, and the dedicated contractors, consultants and channel partners who support it, to respond to the challenge before us and deliver what’s needed: expertise, response time and power management solutions.
