Serres Partners with CAREstream America to Accelerate Its Growth in the United States

Espoo, Finland, August 18, 2021:  CAREstream America — a leading product and services distributor for hospitals, surgery centers, pain management and aesthetic facilities in the United States — became last month an authorized distributor of Serres’s surgical suction and fluid management solutions.  

As a leading fluid management solutions provider in Europe, Serres was looking for a long-term partner with extensive knowledge of the U.S. market to strengthen its growth in this market.  

Impressed by CAREstream America’s expertise and dedication to improving patients’ care, Serres has decided to partner with the CAREstream America team to take fluid management to the next level in the United States.  

“We have been searching for the right partner to really push through to the American market. Our products are recognized for their reliability, quality, and ease-of-use globally. We strongly believe that U.S. hospitals simply cannot do without our solutions, and we are confident that CAREstream America is the ideal partner to take us forward”, says Nicke Svanvik, the CEO of Serres. 


Serres and CAREstream America will focus their partnership on developing the Serres Suction Bag System and Serres Nemo offer in the U.S. market to help healthcare professionals make fluid collection and fluid disposal safer, more hygienic, and cost-efficient.  

Taking Fluid Management to the Next Level with the Serres Suction Bag System and Serres Nemo 

The Serres Suction Bag System — developed in Finland by the Serres team together with healthcare professionals — is now utilized in over 60,000 surgeries per day around the world. It ensures reliable, safe and hygienic surgical suction. 

Serres Nemo, on the other hand, makes liquid disposal safer, faster and cost-effective, allowing hospitals and clinics to reduce risks of contamination for healthcare professionals handling patients’ fluids during and after surgeries.

In fact, the Serres team has been looking at the entire life cycle of its solutions — all the way from the design to the manufacturing, transportation, storage, use and disposal stages — to help healthcare facilities meet their sustainability goals. Learn more here.
