A message from NuVasive Leadership

Dear NuVasive partners,

This is truly an unprecedented time for healthcare. The response by our healthcare professionals—surgeons, nurses, administrators, and hospital staff—is heroic. As you continue to play a part in helping face this global issue, we are here to help.

As a Company, we prioritize the health of our employees and surgeon partners. However, we equally prioritize business continuity to ensure our partners receive the same level of clinical service and support you expect from NuVasive. Because together, we are committed to advancing care and helping change the lives of patients around the globe.

We have activated a central task force to coordinate all necessary resource issues, provide timely responses to emerging situations, and communicate with our employees and customers. Please direct any questions regarding NuVasive’s protocols to your local representatives.

The Company is closely monitoring and adhering to:

  • Established infection control practices and complying with facility protocols and guidelines; and
  • Recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, World Health Organization, Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, and local authorities regarding travel restrictions, facility closures, preventative and proactive measures and response to exposure or symptoms.

We do not foresee any disruptions to our supply chain at this time, and we remain committed to helping serve you through this challenging time. Our task force will continue to monitor the situation as it evolves and will keep employees and customers updated if there are any changes to business operations.

Despite the current challenges, our patients rely on our partnership to change their lives. That work must continue, and we’re here to do our part.

Sincerely,
