Our Values

Create Value for Clinicians, Patients, Employees and Investors
VitaHEAT Medical® offers a work environment that affords opportunities for all employees to reach their full potential. We strive to provide clinicians with superior products so they can in turn provide their patients with excellent care. We attempt to balance the needs of clinicians, patients, employees and investors.

Ensure quality is the foundation of all our activities. We meet and exceed FDA requirements, and our manufacturing facilities have ISO 13485 certification. We maintain the quality of what we do through constant ongoing review with our customers and suppliers. We are committed to the highest quality standards.

We always conduct our own business honestly and honorably, and expect our customers and suppliers to do the same. Our actions and products will always conform to relevant law, and we believe that all businesses and organizations, including our company, should avoid causing any adverse effect on the human rights of people in the organizations we deal with, the local and wider environments, and the well-being of society at large.

We are committed to maintaining the highest degree of integrity in all our dealings with potential, current and past customers, both in terms of normal commercial confidentiality, and the protection of all health and other personal information received in the course of providing the business services concerned. We extend the same standards to all our customers, suppliers, associates and employees.

Trust and Respect Each Others
We attract diverse, capable and committed people and provide an environment that fosters inclusion, respect, individual responsibility and values diversity. Trust is strengthened through personal initiative and by obtaining quality results rapidly.

The quality and value of our products provide the only true basis for business continuity. We always try to meet our customers’ contractual requirements, and provide value well in excess of the cost of our product.

Equality and Discrimination
We always strive to be fair and objective in our advice and actions, and we are never influenced in our decisions, actions or recommendations by issues of gender, race, creed, color, age or personal disability.
