About Co-Vents

Our Story

Co-Vents has been formed as a 501(c)3 not-for-profit corporate that can accept donations to help accelerate our mission.

Co-Vents is deploying an experienced team across the country to serve as a channel for acquiring retired ventilators. This team has deep local geographical experience in historical ventilator purchase patterns as both sales and service representatives. They will purchase decommissioned ventilators that will be shipped to Co-Vents service centers for refurbishing of the device. These certified devices will be made available to states and health systems to help increase ventilator capacity and save lives.

Co-Vents has tapped a team with deep experience in the design, manufacturing and servicing of ventilators complimented by leading pulmonary physicians. Our team is passionate about bridging the ventilator gaps for COVID-19 patients. Every ventilator that we return to service will represent lives our team has saved.

Our Mission

COVID-19 patients by growing the supply of ventilators in the United States.
