Dematic invests in community/local children's hospital

Dematic, a global supplier of logistics systems for factory, warehouse and distribution centers, is continuing to support the community in which it operates by sponsoring the Helen DeVos Children's Hospital.

The company is an Emerald Sponsor for the hospital’s Auto Show Charity Spectacular, made possible by the Grand Rapids New Car Dealers Association, which will be held on February 5, 2014, at DeVos Place. Dematic's gift of $6,000 will support vital programs and services for the hospital’s patients and families.

"The DeVos Children’s Hospital brings necessary care to Grand Rapids and the country including many of the places where our employees live and work,” said John Baysore, President and CEO, Dematic North America. "As a father of six, I understand that parents want the best healthcare for their children and believe this sponsorship advances research and critical care options for families here in Grand Rapids."

In 2013, the DeVos Children’s Hospital ranked as a top hospital in five categories of healthcare for children by U.S. News and World Report's Best Children's Hospitals. The hospital served nearly 200,000 children in 2012 alone and is looking to expand after opening three years ago.
