Why We Exist – A note from Jim, Owner and Founder of Sylvan

I always felt I could make a positive difference in healthcare through producing better products to help nurses care for neonates. Since 1984, my family and I have been driven to provide continuous improvement in atraumatic care alternatives to nurses. We not only want to increase survival outcomes, but improve the quality of treatment for babies starting their lives under the most difficult of circumstances. Sylvan is based on the belief of a quality product made to stand up to the rigors of daily hospital use. The company was founded in 1984 and a true improvement to healthcare was born. Since then, it has grown within neonatal care and onto other patient care. With Sylvan’s versatility improvements in healthcare are born again and again.
