Over 100 GE Healthcare volunteers set aside their day jobs to volunteer to help build medical equipment in critical demand for #COVID19. Meet some of the team here.
Mike, a GE Healthcare medical specialist who previously worked at a hospital, wanted to be one of the many volunteers to help build critical in-demand technology. He didn’t know how to do manufacturing assembly so he instead volunteered to be a second shift janitor.
This is Mike Battuello, a GE Healthcare retiree turned hemp farmer. In 2014, he retired after 40 years which included performing maintenance on medical devices in hospitals. Now, Mike is back to work at our plant in Madison, WI helping to produce ventilators to support clinicians in the battle against #COVID19.
This is Tyler, GE Healthcare engineer and a guru in the valves that are used to make ventilators. When he heard about the shortage, he and his wife packed their dog into the car and drove from Salt Lake City back to the plant in Madison, WI in one day — through an earthquake aftermath and a snowstorm — to help lend Tyler's skills.
