IV Fluid Initiative
B. Braun Medical’s Solutions for Life is a substantial investment in new and enhanced IV therapy manufacturing facilities to help ensure a reliable and consistent supply of the vital IV fluids that American health care providers need. The investment includes a new manufacturing facility in Daytona Beach, FL, and modernizations to existing facilities in Irvine, CA, and Allentown, PA.
Nationwide IV fluid shortages caused by both destructive weather events and severe influenza seasons have forced health care professionals to delay patient treatments or use alternate techniques. B. Braun is addressing this situation by expanding production capacity and improving the ability to deliver IV fluids when and where they are needed. With Solutions for Life, B. Braun will create additional supply by expanding capacity of critical IV fluid production at two large-scale IV fluid production facilities and expand capacity to manufacture IV therapy devices. Other goals are to promote sustainability and ensure global backup by obtaining FDA approval of IV fluids from European facilities, should the need arise.
