Extens supports 1-0-1 (“One-O-One”) in the creation of the "Groupes Mercier"

Extens supports 1-0-1 (“One-O-One”) in the creation of the "Groupes Mercier", an action aimed at resuscitated patients and their relatives to help them in the process of recovery and adaptation to life.

Since 2019, the Extens team supports 1-0-1, an endowment fund dedicated to resuscitation that funds education projects for carers, research projects, and initiatives to support patients and families.

This cause was dear to the heart of Dominique Mercier, a long-time friend and partner of Extens, who left us at the beginning of the year after having presided over the destiny of Bow Medical, a software publisher dedicated to resuscitation and intensive care.

In conjunction with the IMPULSE gala by 101, which brought together over 200 guests at the Hôtel Potocki on 9 October, Extens is contributing 101,000 euros to the project's funding, after launching a campaign in tribute to Dominique Mercier earlier this year.

This project, named after him and supported by 101, is aimed at patients and their families and offers support groups where the sharing of experience and expert advice encourage the process of recovery and adaptation to life after the trying experience of resuscitation.

A stay in intensive care is an ordeal that leaves its mark on almost 50% of patients. When they are discharged, patients who are referred to other hospital departments or to rehabilitation need specific support. Talking and sharing experiences are essential when patients no longer have a place in hospital and are seeking to return to their family and social roles.

About 101 (One O One)

Created in 2018 on the initiative of 6 internationally renowned physician-researchers and leading figures from civil society, and chaired by Professor Jean-Daniel Chiche, 101 is the first international endowment fund with the ambition of advancing resuscitation worldwide.

Five years after its creation, 101 organised its second major charity gala dinner around a unique evening to collect donations to finance its projects aimed at improving the performance of intensive care units and creating quality "second lives" for all the most fragile patients.

In an exceptional setting highlighting the structuring projects supported by 101, the evening was punctuated by a dinner signed by michelin-starred chef and "Meilleur Ouvrier de France", Frédéric Simonin, and concluded with a private concert given by Giovanni Mirabassi and Pamina Beroff. Close to EUR 500,000 was raised.
