Northwell Health, New York State’s largest healthcare provider and private employer, and Digital Gadgets, a leading global manufacturer and distributor of technology products, have signed an agreement to bring a line of Northwell-branded innovative wellness products to market. DG Surgical, a division of Digital Gadgets, will be the exclusive manufacturer and distributor to retail, health care and government customers of Northwell-branded products.
The agreement combines Northwell’s best-in-class clinical care and expertise with Digital Gadgets’ industry-leading manufacturing and distribution capabilities to introduce innovation-driven, physician-approved wellness products to the marketplace.
“Launching a wellness product line that will reach consumers across the country exemplifies Northwell’s commitment to community health and our belief that local care and local access to care drive better health outcomes,” said Joe Moscola, PA, executive vice president of Enterprise Services for Northwell Health. “As we strive to improve the health of communities and define tomorrow's health care, we look forward to bringing our new technology-driven line of wellness products to the market through our collaboration with Digital Gadgets.” Digital Gadgets was instrumental in providing over 30 government entities with critical PPE and testing during the Covid-19 pandemic, and the company was awarded “Vendor of the Year” for Home Shopping Network (HSN) in March 2022.
“Northwell Health championed innovation to combat the Covid-19 pandemic, and launching a best-in-class, innovative wellness product line further demonstrates why Northwell is a national leader in the healthcare space,” said Charlie Tebele, founder and CEO of Digital Gadgets. “Coupling Digital Gadgets’ manufacturing and distribution expertise with Northwell’s clinical strengths will arm patients and consumers with exceptionally high-quality, physician-approved products and set a gold standard in the health and wellness marketplace.”
Today’s announced collaboration comes shortly after Northwell Health President and CEO Michael Dowling, who championed innovation to combat the pandemic and was just as aggressive toward health equity and gun violence as a public health crisis, was selected as America’s most influential leader in health care by Modern Healthcare.
