Midmark Gives Back Tradein Program Results in Nearly 1000 Exam Tables Donated to World Vision image

The donation, valued at approximately $500,000, is the largest one-time donation of tables from Midmark’s trade-in program.

Midmark Corp.'s 2021 trade-in program collected 1,000 eligible exam tables. The tables were donated primarily to World Vision, where they are refurbished and delivered to clinics that provide health care to children and families in remote areas of developing countries. The donation, valued at approximately $500,000, is the largest one-time donation of tables from Midmark’s trade-in program.

“At Midmark, we believe that all patients deserve accessible, quality healthcare and are committed to doing our part to make this happen,” says Kurt Forsthoefel, director of medical marketing, Midmark. “Through our unique trade-in program and our longstanding relationship with World Vision, Midmark is helping provide better care and improve medical services that impact lives around the world.”

As part of its trade-in program, Midmark offers customers rebates on eligible products purchased with a valid equipment trade-in. Eligible products purchased include Midmark IQecg, Midmark HEINE diagnostic instruments and Midmark Barrier-Free exam chairs. Midmark has donated approximately 10,000 tables to World Vision since the beginning of its relationship with the organization in 2005. These tables have been given to clinics all around the world, including in Ghana, Nicaragua, Zambia and Burundi.

“We value our relationship with Midmark and appreciate everything the company and its teammates do to help ensure the equipment continues to play a role in providing quality care to those in need,” says Jack Laverty, director of corporate engagement, World Vision. “This year’s donation was especially challenging given the logistical constraints being felt around the globe. Midmark and its customers really stepped up, covering freight charges and donating labor to help the equipment get to where it needed to be.”

Along with increasing access to quality care in remote areas, there is also a sustainability benefit to this year’s donation of 1,000 exam tables. Each exam table weighs about 400 pounds, which means 200 tons of equipment was saved from being placed in landfills.

World Vision is a Christian humanitarian organization dedicated to working with children, families and their communities worldwide to reach their full potential by tackling the causes of poverty and injustice. With staff in nearly 100 countries, World Vision serves all people, regardless of religion, race, ethnicity or gender.
