Kimberly-Clark Health Care And 3M Announce U.S.-Based Infection Prevention Solutions Agreement

ROSWELL, Ga. and ST. PAUL, Minn., March 17, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --  Kimberly-Clark Health Care and 3M Infection Prevention Division today announced a unique alliance to deliver best-in-class surgical and infection prevention solutions to hospitals and healthcare facilities in the U.S.

"At Kimberly-Clark, we have long admired 3M's track record of innovation. This relationship presents the opportunity to offer a more extensive surgical product portfolio with the latest healthcare technology to help customers tackle their foremost challenges including infection prevention and hospital readmissions," said Chris Lowery, Global VP, Health Care Sales & Marketing, Kimberly-Clark. "Together, Kimberly-Clark and 3M will leverage our respective expertise to bring forward solutions that address our customers' most critical needs in the operating room."

" Kimberly-Clark offers tremendous experience and long-standing relationships built around a consultative approach in the operating room and we are thrilled to work together. 3M's history of innovative products, paired with Kimberly-Clark's expertise, will create an exceptional offering for our healthcare customers," added Silvia Perez, Global Business Vice President, Infection Prevention Division, 3M. "By working with a like-minded company equally committed to addressing current healthcare challenges, we are harnessing our collective capabilities to improve surgical outcomes."

With the launch of the collaboration, Kimberly-Clark Health Care will offer 3M™ Steri-Drape™ fabric and plastic specialty drapes, featuring drapes with and without 3M™ Ioban™ 2 Antimicrobial Incise Film, which provides excellent adhesion throughout the surgical site and helps reduce the risk of wound contamination. The addition of the 3M drape line rounds out Kimberly-Clark Health Care's surgical and infection prevention offering.  All 3M Steri-Drape surgical drapes will be available through the same distribution and surgical pack manufacturing channels as they are today.
