Cherub Medical talks supply chain concerns

SHAWNEE, Kan. – Cherub Medical Supply hosted Rep. Sharice Davids, D-Kan., on Jan. 24 to discuss the impact of supply chain challenges on its business and patients, according to a release from Davids and MAMES. 

In addition to Sam Cress of Cherub Medical, Nick Hulsing of Reliable Medical Supplies and Rose Schafhauser of MAMES attended the meeting. 

“As a small business caring for medically fragile children in Kansas City, we have faced many issues due to rising costs, semiconductor supply chain shortages, and declining reimbursement,” said Sam Cress, director of operations at Cherub Medical. “We look forward to partnering with Rep. Davids regarding these concerns to champion and protect the families we serve.” 

Davids has been a vocal proponent of the bipartisan CHIPS Act, which would boost domestic manufacturing of semiconductors. The act, which has been passed by Congress, awaits full funding through the U.S. Innovation and Competition Act. 

If funded, the act would provide $52 billion to strengthen domestic semiconductor production, including $2 billion targeted to the research and development of mature node semiconductors, known as legacy chips, which are critical for medical devices, smartphones, cars, computers and more.
