$2Bn Golden Egg: 8 Manufacturers Will Share Billions To Make Ventilators For US Govt

Executive Summary

Seven companies – GE, Medtronic, ResMed, Hill-Rom, Vyaire, Hamilton Medical and Zoll – will manufacture 64,431 medical ventilators under the Defense Production Act at a cost of more than $1.4bn, the US Department of Health and Human Services said on 13 April. That figure, when combined with the $646.7m recently awarded to Royal Philips to make 45,500 vents, means the US government will spend more than $2bn on the devices.
