August 14, 2014

Each year the AARC presents the Zenith Award to the top corporations in the respiratory care industry during our annual International Respiratory Convention & Exhibition. Considered the “people’s choice” award of the respiratory care profession, they are highly prized by the recipients, who proudly display them on their websites and in their Exhibit Hall booths.

Now it is up to you to choose the recipients for 2014. This is your opportunity to say “thank you” to your favorite industry team members…the companies that research and develop new products and enhancements to make life better for patients, whose representatives are just a phone call or email away when you need help, who stand behind their products and services.

The AARC will present the 2014 Zenith Awards to executives representing the winning companies when the Association convenes AARC Congress 2014 in Las Vegas, NV, on Tuesday, Dec. 9. Your vote could place your favorite company in the spotlight during this year’s Awards Ceremony. Now, that’s a great way to show them your appreciation for making your job easier.

Consider these voting criteria

When making your choice, evaluate the manufacturers, service organizations, and supply companies that have done the most outstanding job for you over the past year according to these criteria:

  • Support of the respiratory care profession.
