Sage's core belief is prevention—that evidence-based interventions will lead to improved outcomes. This belief led to the birth of Interventional Patient Hygiene, a nursing action plan focused on fortifying patients' host defenses with evidence-based care. By promoting a return to the basics of nursing care, our advanced patient hygiene products and programs help healthcare facilities improve clinical outcomes by reducing the risk of hospital-acquired infection and skin breakdown.
Sage Products is much more than just a healthcare manufacturing company. We are true innovators and have been that way from the very beginning. We don't just take existing concepts and make them our own. We develop new concepts and products that address the challenges of the ever-changing healthcare industry. We take ideas, turn them into clinically relevant products and bring them to the marketplace as quickly as possible. But we don't just do this in a lab or boardroom. We take a hands-on approach to developing and improving our products, spending time in facilities listening to those people who use our products every day. We rely on feedback from clients and experiences in the field to develop products that will ultimately enhance patient care.
Healthcare is a business, but to us it's personal. Our seasoned sales team truly cares about the customer and their patients. Whether in the hospital, alternate care or retail arena, we take the time to listen and respond to the needs of the rapidly changing healthcare market. Our customer service teams ensure responsive, personalized service for the length of customers' relationship with Sage. Our customers demand total satisfaction from Sage's products and service, and Sage demands that our people give them that satisfaction.
