HAN member Bon Secours Mercy Health (BSMH) has formed a strategic collaboration with Emerge Manufacturing, an MWBE, to support and advance U.S.-based sourcing and manufacturing of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and to create more than 100 jobs in two economically struggling and predominantly Black neighborhoods in Cincinnati.

“By investing in Emerge Manufacturing, we are supporting ongoing job creation in Ohio,” said Brian Smith, president of Bon Secours Mercy Health. “Emerge Manufacturing is a minority-owned business that aligns to Bon Secours Mercy Health’s Mission and core values. Health equity, diversity, equity and inclusion in the workplace and in our communities are top priorities for our health system. Domestic sourcing and PPE production means a smaller carbon footprint, which supports our commitment to long-term environmental sustainability.”
