Saints Medical Center and ZOLL Medical Corporation Enter Collaborative Agreement

LOWELL, Mass., Jan. 6, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Saints Medical Center, a leading non-profit healthcare facility in the Greater Lowell area, is pleased to announce it has entered into a multi-faceted agreement with ZOLL Medical Corporation (Nasdaq: ZOLL) of Chelmsford, Mass., a leader in comprehensive hospital and EMS resuscitation solutions. This agreement includes the Saints-based EMS service working with ZOLL to collaborate on and test new product concepts and technology concepts.

Recently Saints purchased ZOLL R Series® "Simple, Smart, Ready" defibrillators as a part the hospital's resuscitation solution to improve survival-to-discharge results. The R Series makes code-readiness possible for every hospital department with its advanced, cost-effective defibrillation capabilities. In addition, Saints also recently acquired ZOLL technology for its EMS service, which will allow for a more seamless delivery of care from the pre-hospital to the intra-hospital environment.

"ZOLL selected Saints Medical Center to be a partner because their operation embodies a commitment to healthcare excellence provided by a dedicated team of highly skilled paramedics and emergency providers who have proven their ability to effectively respond in critical care situations," said Jonathan A. Rennert, President of ZOLL.  "This partnership will be most beneficial in our continued effort to bring the most innovative, outcome-improving technology to the communities they serve."

"We are continually advancing our capabilities to provide Lowell and the surrounding communities with the most up-to-date and advanced life saving technology possible," said Stephen Guimond, CEO, Saints Medical Center.

The need for advanced cardiac resuscitation technology in the Greater Lowell area is huge.  Last year Saints' paramedic team received the largest number of calls per vehicle in the entire state. "We have been waiting for the technology offered in ZOLL's innovative products for twenty years," said Saints Emergency Department Medical Director, Dr. Gary DeLong. "We are now able to better respond to and care for the clinical needs of patients experiencing a cardiac emergency.  With ZOLL's advanced product capabilities, we anticipate improved outcomes. In addition, our very progressive EMS team looks forward to participating with ZOLL in new product and technology development.

Saints is the second largest hospital-based provider of 9-1-1 Advanced Life Support response in Massachusetts serving Lowell, Chelmsford, Dracut, Dunstable, Tewksbury, Tyngsboro, and Westford.

Other new technology that Saints Medical Center has deployed in order to save lives includes therapeutic hypothermia, the RESQPOD™ threshold impedance device, and EZIO™ intraosseous vascular access devices. The utilization of these devices in the field has greatly improved cardiac patient neurological outcomes.  In the past few years Saints Medical Center has received recognition for its exemplary "door to balloon" process based on its ability to diagnose and treat acute cardiac situations.
